Good day everyone
Welcome back to the Café
Here is some advice I shared with a family this week.
I hope you find it helpful.
A Good Dog Fence Makes For Better Neighbors
Believe it or not, not everyone likes your family pet. By keeping your pet in an identified space with a good quality dog fence, Fido can remain as a good neighbor. I know, I know, it’s almost impossible to imagine that anyone who knows Fido doesn’t immediately fall in love with her. She might just be ok with the neighbors, but the things she does in their yard make for some unhappy relationships. This is just one of the main reasons why every pet owner has an obligation to control their pets traveling range with pet fencing.
The problem, of course, is about relieving themselves in someone else’s yard. Yes, your pet may be friendly and would like to visit the neighbors, but the fact is, many people do not share your love affair with your pet. They don’t want the bother of picking up after an animal that’s not theirs nor having their yards soiled with urine “hot spots” and doggie piles. Although usually very friendly, dogs can also be destructive of plants and landscaping, making many breeds poor neighbors.
That’s not to say that your dog isn’t a nice animal. Dogs are typically social and enjoy interaction with a variety of people. This play interaction, however, is not without consequences. Whether they belong to you or the neighbor, things get broken, chewed on, and otherwise “enjoyed” by your pet. Having to face an angry neighbor because your dog destroyed his prize-winning rose bush garden isn’t something to be desired.
There’s also the issue of community security. This is especially true if your dog is a larger breed. Having a large dog escape the security of their yard could be seen as negligence on your part. Communities are becoming increasingly upset at pet owners who allow their animals free run of a neighborhood. Heaven forbid if your dog, while free, attacks someone or another animal. This is especially serious if the other dog or pet is on a leash.
The saying is that a good fence makes for good neighbors. A good dog fence also makes for your pet’s happy and healthy environment. By securing your dog using secure fencing, your best friend also has the security of knowing where his yard boundaries are located. There is no need to “guard” anything beyond the fence lines, so your pet is more inclined to stay in his yard to better “watch” his property. Overall, fencing is a good investment, no matter what type of dog you may have as a pet.
