Just like you, we at Northeastern Fences, love our pets, but it can be frustrating when our furry friends wake you up in the early morning wanting to go outside, especially during the chilly New York winters. Wouldn’t you like to be able to just open a door and let your pet run free instead of having to bundle up and walk outdoors in the bitter cold? Well, you can! Installing a yard fence can benefit both you and your pet. How, you may ask?

Comfort

Although you may think it’s too cold to play outside, that doesn’t mean your pets do! A lot of pets love running around and playing in the snow. Although this may be fun for your pets, you may not feel like being outside in the cold with them. With a yard fence, you both can get your way. A yard fence allows you to open the door and let your furry friends play outside while you stay inside in the nice warm house. It also gives your pets the freedom to run around in the snow without being constrained by a leash.

Safety

Ice can be a hazard to both you and your pet. When sidewalks get slippery, the chances of slipping and getting injured increase. Walking a pet on ice increases the chances of you slipping even more. Even though slipping can also be a hazard to your pets, the biggest ice related threat to your pet is when we try to get rid of ice. A lot of the salts used for melting ice can cause considerable damage to your pet’s paws. Ice melt products tend to dry our paws causing them to become sore and cracked. You can keep your pet’s paws safe by letting them run around your fenced in yard, rather than on icy or salted sidewalks.

Be sure to check on your pets often and let them inside if you think they are getting too cold. Always be sure to follow the recommended winter safety tips to avoid injuries to your pet.
