When it comes to choosing a fence for your dog, you need to think about a lot of factors. Some people make the tragic mistake of choosing an invisible fence when a real fence is truly the better option. Today we’ll be giving you the rundown on the best fence options for your dog. Ready? Let’s go for it!
Why are invisible fences a mistake?
An invisible fence is a perimeter that is designed to shock your dog if it gets too close. This can lead to all sorts of problems for your dog down the line. They may begin to see going outside as a punishment. After all, they may not even remember where the perimeter is. So, your beloved pup could become anxious when they go out to play because they’re never really sure when the shock will come. It sort of ruins the fun, doesn’t it? Not only that, but in the event that your dog is exceptionally determined to push past the painful shocks, they can get past it and be unleashed.
So which fence will work?
Well, one of the biggest things you should consider when you’re investing in a fence for your dog is your dog’s capabilities. Are they good at jumping or are they more of a digger? Can they climb chain link fences? Some dogs can. Consider how large and agile your dog is and purchase your fence accordingly.
