trash and has scattered garbage up and down the street. Or even better is finding your favorite lawn chair or a pair
of sandals all chewed up in the backyard. And there is no worse feeling then finding out your dog got out and either
ran away or ran out into the street only to get hit by a car.
If you do not have a fenced yard or your dog easily escapes from your backyard then it may be time to install that
dog kennel fence. Putting one together is not hard and will go along ways towards keeping your four legged friend
safe. In fact if you have a big tree in your backyard you can build your dog kennel around it, giving your dog shade
during the hot summer months.
Fencing for a dog kennel can be bought at any home improvement or pet store and is relatively inexpensive. When you
take the plunge and start planning your dog kennel you will need to lay out the perimeter in your yard. Take
measurements to figure out how much fence will be needed. Dog kennel fence comes in rolls starting at 50 feet up to
100 feet. You will also need to decide how high you want your kennel fence to be. If you have a small dog that
doesn't jump very high then a shorter fence will do. For bigger dogs 5 to 6 foot high fences are needed.
The other thing to think about when buying your material is how smart is your dog. There are dogs out there that can
figure out how to climb a fence and get out of their yard or kennel. If this is something your dog has shown some
ability to do you might consider a dog kennel fence with smaller holes or put a roof over the kennel. A dog kennel
is of little use if your dog can easily get out.
The safety of your dog is the primary reason for building a dog kennel fence, but the peace of mind for you, his
owner, knowing that he is safe when you are not home is also worth a lot.
