Do You Need a Dog Kennel Fence?

There's nothing better then coming home from work only to find that your dog has gotten into yours or your neighbors

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.
