Let's be real, dogs need space to run and play; and it's convenient enough to let dogs out in the yard. But, fencing is required; and there are many types of fence for dogs on the market; but not all are humane. Let's break it down.
Chain-Link Fences are heavy, a pain to install and are not flexible. Oh; and they will corrode over time. Barbed Wire will hurt the dog with small barbs of wire; and invisible electric dog fences shock dogs to teach them a lesson - the least humane option out of all of these fences.
Plastic dog fencing is more gentle and is easy to manage. Poly dog fencing is lightweight but durable. It is meant for small dogs or for calm dogs that won't jump on the fence. For higher energy dogs that will jump, even chew on the fence, it's best to go with a PVC-coated metal dog fence.
These type of dog fences will not harm the dog nor the environment. These are much better options for homeowners for any dog breed. Even better, the fences will last between 10-30 years based on the strength grade and material.
