Why Use Ground Stakes?
Staking down the bottom of the fence is a must when installing a pet fence. The fence stakes used on pet fencing are much stronger than your typical camping stakes. After all, you are holding down a heavier frame, not just a camping tent.
Ground Stakes are used to stop dogs and cats from digging their ways underneath the fence; but they are also used to deter wildlife from making their way inside the pet enclosure. Having a ground stake every 5 feet apart from each other will provide added security to the system.
There are two types of fence stakes; and the ground stake used depends on the soil type in your yard. For average soils, choose Kinked Ground Stakes; but for rocky, or harder surfaces, use Rebar Stakes.
When fencing in dogs and cats, add ground stakes to your list of accessories.
