The best fence for dogs.
As a pet owner, you are probably looking for a fence that will be able to keep your dog inside. Dogs can dig, and they can jump; some are better at it than others, but we have all seen video’s on social media of dogs doing amazing things such as digging under a fence or hopping over. Ideally, you’d like a fence that discourages your dog from digging and is high enough to prevent most dogs from jumping over. You will also want to look for durable and robust fence options like SLEEKFENCE that are not likely to show scratches.
This article will add to one that we wrote a while back; we have gotten more questions about this topic since, and we want to deliver as much value as possible in these posts. If you have any feedback, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We use this feedback to create helpful content to serve the marketplace. Below you’ll find four reasons why a SLEEKFENCE modern aluminum fence will be your best bet for keeping FIDO in the yard.
How to discourage your dog from digging.
There are a few basic things you can do to discourage your dog from digging a tunnel under the fence. Ensure that your SLEEKFENCE aluminum privacy fence is installed so that it runs low to the ground; this will make it, so there is less space between the fence and the ground. It will be much less tempting for your dog to dig a hole. If you go with our privacy fence option, your dog will not see through the fence; this will also help a lot because they will not see anything on the other side that tempts them to jump or dig.
Why aluminum privacy fence panels are your best bet.
We have a 6-foot option that would be perfect for keeping Fido from jumping over. An aluminum fence is going to be your best option if you’re looking for strength and durability. You won’t have to worry about your pet clawing at it because our fences come with a very tough satin black powder coat to ensure that they won’t show scratch marks. SLEEKFENCE metal privacy panels are constructed from high-quality pure aluminum alloy 6063 T5, so you won’t have to worry about your fence warping or bending either. A 6-foot aluminum privacy fence will keep virtually any breed inside and all the unwanted stimuli out. Even though we recommend you go with the metal privacy fence panels, the horizontal screen fence would not be a bad option either. Both would keep your dog from squeezing through.
Which height is best.
Both our screen and privacy fence options have two height options (6″ and 4″) if you have a smaller breed than the 4″ may suffice, but if you are looking to be sure regardless of which breed you have, then you are going to want to go for 6″ aluminum privacy fence. They won’t be able to jump over or climb this option. If you’d like to get to the bottom of this, we recommend you check out this guide on affordableagility.com to determine your dog’s jump height based on measuring your dog’s height. This will ensure that you have an excellent idea. Once you do this exercise, you should have all of the information you need to make your selection. In addition to this, you’ll also want to limit any platforms your dog could utilize, such as chairs, boxes, tables…etc keep them away from your modern privacy fence, and you should be in the clear.
Why did we choose aluminum over other metals?
Iron was the most common material that was used in fencing for centuries. These old-school iron designs inspired many aluminum fencing that you see today. Many of the modern aluminum fencing designs you see today were inspired by those signature designs. Even though they may look similar in most cases, the amount of maintenance they require is night and day. Our modern fence panels require little to no maintenance at all. On the other hand, iron requires the user to paint it from time to time to avoid rust and moisture. Rust is never an issue for aluminum because the surface is protected with a natural layer of aluminum oxide; this is why aluminum doesn’t corrode.
