Best Fences for Dogs

Below we’ll outline a variety of different fences that we’ve installed for dog owners to hopefully help you decide what’s best for you and your beloved pet.

Wooden Fences

If your dog is one that typically barks at strangers or walkers passing by your home, you may be in the market for a wooden fence. If you install a solid wooden fence that’s not slatted, you’ll be able to block distractions such as cars on the street or a neighbor’s home from your dog’s view. You can also install wood fences fairly high, which can discourage dogs from attempting to jump over the fence and head out on the town.

Vinyl Fences

Vinyl fences will not split, rot or warp like wooden fences. In addition, vinyl fences are more durable and many have warranties that can be attractive to homeowners. Maintenance is much easier compared to wood fences too, simply throw a bit of soap and water on your fence and it will look brand new.

Chain Link Fences

If you’re looking for the most economical dog fence option, you likely will want to look at chain link fences. These fences are low cost and low maintenance, making them perfect for an economical dog fence.

Dogs and Digging

One thing to keep in mind is that if your dog is a digger, you’ll want to bury your fence at least 6 inches underground. This way you won’t come home to a hole under your fence and no Fido!
