Why You Need a Fenced Yard for Your Dog

Almost all domestic animals need adequate time to play outside, explore new terrain, and socialize with other pets. A dog fence can allow you to train your dog without leaving your backyard. Plus, it will give your dog enough secure room to stretch its legs and play around. Without a proper fence, you would have to take your dog outdoors on a leash, which sometimes can be uncomfortable as dogs don’t like being on a leash all the time.

There are good reasons that most responsible breeders and rescue organizations require that you have appropriate residential fencing before adopting a pet out to you. One of the most crucial reasons is that a fenced yard can protect your dog and keep it safe from potential dangers.

Remember that dogs have the mentality of young children and can outrun the world’s fastest sprinter if an opportunity presents itself. Many risks await unsupervised dogs when they’re running loose. Unsupervised animals can:

  • Escape and become lost
  • Be hit by a car
  • Cause accidents
  • Be killed or injured in dog fights
  • Be stolen by a stranger
  • Get caught in animal traps
  • Get poisoned by neighbors or on accident
  • Be shot or injured

Why Fence?

Based on research by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation, nearly 36.5% of American households own at least one dog. This means that if you have a dog or any other pet for that matter, you need to understand that pets require many things to be happy and healthy at home – the outdoor time being one of the most important.

For many homeowners, installing a fence is a way to add value to their properties. While this is certainly true, there are significant reasons why having a protected yard with a dog is a great decision. Here are some of the best reasons to reach out to fencing professionals at Fence Builders Inc. to have your backyard enclosed in a perfect residential fence for the love of your dog.

Protect Your Dog from Predators
Most homeowners overlook the amount of harm predators can cause to their dogs. Some people are even not aware if dogs are vulnerable to predator attacks. But the reality is that loose dogs are an easy target to predators like wolves, mountain lions, coyotes, and bears. So if you live in a location with lots of wildlife, we recommend that you always keep your dog in a fenced area.

You Dog is a Personal Liability
Like children, your dog(s) need to be under your supervision all the time because if they manage to get out and you have no fence, the dog becomes a liability. Worse, if the dog happens to bite, scratch, or harm anyone in the neighborhood, you would automatically become responsible for their damages and paying their medical bills. Additionally, you could be held accountable should the animal cause a car accident.

Tethering a Dog is Not Healthy
Chaining your dog continually for long periods can be harmful and even cause serious effects physically and emotionally. This can make the dog develop a raw or sore neck, become aggressive or anxious, and become more vulnerable to predator attacks. That is why you should not use chaining in place of a dog fence.
