Get A Puppy for Christmas? Here’s What You Need to Know About Fencing

Your new dog may need a new fence.

So, Santa brought you a new puppy for Christmas! Or perhaps you adopted an older dog to give a forever home. Either way, you’re definitely going to need a new fence if you don’t have one. Or, perhaps, even if you do have one – a dog brings with it plenty of new needs. Fencing will, of course, help keep your dog safely on your property and simultaneously provide them some much-needed outdoor freedom.

Knowing what kind of fence to choose can be difficult. Different dogs require different fences, and there can seem to be almost as many different kinds of fences as there are dog breeds. Luckily, Hercules Fence is here to help you give Fido the perfect match.

How Big Will He or She Get?

Before you purchase a Virginia Beach dog fence, stop and think about your dog’s size (or how big he or she will be in adulthood) and how your dog behaves. While you can glean a lot from general “temperament facts” associated with your dog’s breed, it’s far more important to have an accurate understanding of your dog’s personality. Homeowners with aggressive, larger dogs or guard dogs may need the security and visibility of a high chain link fence while more affably tempered dogs may only need a wood picket to remind them where their boundaries are. It’s also worth thinking about your dog’s habits. Chewers and diggers will need a tougher fence with posts that extend further into the ground.

Think About Your Dog’s Age

Virginia Beach homeowners should make sure to factor in their canine’s age before purchasing a dog fence. While a shorter picket fence may be fine for a puppy, when that dog is fully grown they may be able to leap the same fence with ease. In general its best to err on the side of caution. A larger fence can almost always protect a smaller dog (although watch out for fence gaps that a small pup could slip through) and a tougher enclosure will keep you more prepared should you decide to bring another doggy into your fold.

Don’t Forget The Outside World

Remember, a dog fence isn’t just about protecting Virginia Beach from your dog, it also protects your dog from Virginia Beach. A dog fence can protect your dog from malcontented individuals seeking to cause harm, and keep loose or poorly controlled animals that could hurt your pup at a safe distance.
