Even if you have a fenced-in backyard where your pets can run, play and explore, that still might not be enough. This is particularly true if you’re someone who does a lot of outdoor entertaining or have a dog that’s a fence jumper, digger or creative escape artist. You may also want to consider investing in a separate space for your dog to enjoy while you’re away from home if he or she is fond of digging in your flowerbeds or rolling around in your vegetable garden. It’s not a bad idea if you want to designate a particular area the restroom to avoid brown spots on your meticulously manicured lawn.

Enclosures for Dogs - Albany NY - Northeastern Fences

Whatever the case may be, a dog run fence enclosure from Northeastern Fences may be just what you’ve been looking for!

If you’re in the market for a dog run enclosure, the first thing you may want to consider is where you’d like to put it. You’ll want it to be out of the way enough to not interfere with any outdoor entertaining or family activities, while at the same time still have it close enough for you to be able to check on your dog(s) periodically.

If you’d like for your dog to be able to go in and out of a particular portion of the house while you’re not home without needing to physically leave a door open, you could place your enclosure adjacent to a side door with a doggie door installed; if you choose this location, make sure the run is tall enough for you to conveniently use the door to access the area.

You’ll also want to pick the largest spot possible, especially if your dog(s) will be spending a lot of time in the enclosure. This will help to ensure that he or she has enough room to run, play and explore without feeling cramped.

Regardless of the selected location, the spot you choose should be in partial shade to allow your dog to get out of the hot sun when necessary and should be close enough to a water source to make spraying it down and filling up water bowls more convenient.

If you have a big, strong dog, you’ll need to pay more attention to choosing a sturdy fencing material. If your dog is a jumper or a climber, you’ll want to consider either building a taller run or putting a top on the enclosure to keep him or her inside. If your dog is a digger, you’ll need to consider either burying the fence below ground or installing a paving stone border to prevent digging.

The purpose of a dog run is to provide your dog(s) with a safe, comfortable, enjoyable place to be when he or she isn’t inside with you or enjoying your entire backyard. In order to make your dog run an inviting place to hangout and keep it from becoming nothing more than a cage, ensure that it has comfortable groundcover, plenty of shade, readily available drinking water, some of your dog’s favorite toys, and a nice place to lie down for a nap.
