No matter the type of dog, dogs need space to run and play. Dogs are not meant to sit and walk a small perimeter, which is why pet fencing is a must for pet owners.
Dogs need a healthy way to burn off energy and having the space to run free gives them the opportunity to explore new terrain while socializing with other animals and bonding with owners. Pet fencing doesn't just protect animals from the inside, but keeps them away from wildlife that can potentially hurt them. It's in the news every day: Coyote attacks dog. Or, stray cat scratches dog. This can be prevented by getting a pet fence that blocks attempts from wild animals.
Dogs that have a low-key temperament can be surrounded by a plastic dog fence. Don't let plastic fences for dogs fool you. These are durable and sturdy fences that can last 10-15 years. For more rambunctious dogs that chew and dig, PVC-coated metal pet fencing will help secure dogs inside the perimeter. The PVC-coating protects the steel fence from chew marks made by the dog and will last 20-30 years.
Whichever option pet owners choose for their dogs, it's great to know that the pets are surrounded by a humane pet fence that can become part of the family for many years to come.
