Dog Fencing Alternatives
According to PetSafe, a reputable dog company founded in 1991 aimed at the security and safety of dogs, keeping your dog in your yard is your most important responsibility as a pet owner. Many cities have leash laws, and you can be cited, arrested, or even sued if your dog bites someone while loose from your yard. Other than the traditional chain link fence or wooden fence surrounding your entire backyard, you do have other options that Northeastern Fences can provide you.
- Dog Runs When you have an inside dog, there can be lots of times when you feel guilty for not having the time to take your dog on long walks or to a local dog park. You know your dog needs exercise and playtime; however, after a long, grueling day at work, you just do not have the energy. With a dog run, you have an area for your dog to run and play outside with some freedom yet with no worries of escape. When a dog is properly exercised, he or she is much happier and healthier. A well-exercised dog is less likely to bark excessively, act destructively in your home by biting or tearing up things, and behave negatively. Another plus of having a dog run enclosure is if you have guests over who are allergic to dogs or pet dander, you will no longer have to shut your dog away in a room in your home; you can put him or her outside in the dog run to have fun in the sun and not feel locked up inside. Northeastern Fences is ready to talk to you about what size and style dog run you would like, and we guarantee you will be satisfied with our professionalism and quality.
- Dog Electrical Fencing Containment Maybe you do not like the look of fencing, or you might even live in a community with restrictions on fences on your properties. Do you still have an option for your dog? At Northeastern Fences, we can install an electrical fence that gives you the security and safety of containment without visible fencing at a price you can afford. Electric fences are effective and reliable, but the question is can the electricity harm your dog? No, your dog will never be “shocked.” How an electric fence like this works is you create a wireless boundary with a transmitter that sends radio signals to your dog’s collar. When your dog gets close to the set boundaries, the transmitter sends out a safe but surprising static correction to the collar, reminding your dog not to cross that boundary. You can even change your yard boundaries quickly and easily.
Whichever option is best for you, or if you are still unsure, give Northeastern Fences a call and let us guide you through these choices with our years of experience and expertise with installing dog enclosures of different types.
