Dog fences are a way to get rid of a chain or a dog-run and let your dog run free. All while keeping your lawn safe for your dog. At least as far as he knows. But what type of fence is best for your dog? Well, that depends on a few factors. And this infographic does a great job of breaking down the differences between the types of fences and which ones will work best for you.
There are a few types of fencing to consider when it comes to your dog. You can choose from a wireless fence, a wired fence, or the age-old traditional fence. Each has its own pros and cons, which this infographic goes through in detail.
A wireless dog fence is a truly invisible fence that takes very little to install. Typically, the fence is a small box that sends out a wireless signal and communicates with the dog collar wirelessly. This type of fencing is the easiest to install, but it comes with some downsides. For one, it only creates a circular fence, and secondly, the signal may vary based on a variety of factors. Finally, if you lose power, it’s not going to work.
Most of us are aware of what a wired dog fence is, as they have been around much longer than the newer wireless fences. Unfortunately, the fence is difficult to install, but the signal will not vary as widely as the wireless fence, and it’s also an invisible option.
The most expensive option is the traditional picket fence. There are many types of fencing to choose from. But be sure that no matter what type of material you choose, you want to be sure the fence is tall enough. And bear in mind the height of the fence you will need will depend on the type of dog you have. Some dogs can quickly jump 6 feet or higher if they want to.
These are all things to keep in mind when choosing which dog fence is suitable for your pup. For more great info, check out K9 of Mine for more great information on caring for your dog.
