Good fencing is a vital part of being a responsible dog owner. Some dogs, especially the smaller and more wily ones, delight in finding small gaps. It can be remarkable how tiny a gap a very determined terrier can wriggle through, and then the sheer quantity of mischief they can get up to once they have escaped. Big dogs go the other way and can enjoy putting their paws up on too low fencing and peering over the top, and it often doesn’t take an enormous leap for your four-legged friend to be in your neighbour’s garden. Never the best move for a good relationship with your neighbours!
If you are looking to rehome a dog from a rescue centre, one of the very first questions they ask is “do you have a securely fenced garden?” Don’t fall at the first hurdle of the rescue process by having to answer “no.” If you are considering getting a rescue dog, go and examine your fencing thoroughly and check that it is really dog-proof. Again, consider what type of dog you are after, as different breeds have different requirements.
Dogs, much as we love them, can cause havoc to gardens. So, you might want to consider splitting your garden up into areas. We can fence off your vegetable area from little paws, with attractive yet secure fencing, so that you don’t find your dog digging up your potato crop!
A secure garden allows your dog to be outside without constant vigilance on your part. Dogs that are prone to escaping can get picked up by the dog warden and if you are unlucky you could be landed with a hefty fine. If the dog warden repeatedly picks up your dog, they will charge you a repeat offenders fee. You may find that fencing your garden is cheaper in the long run!
