Dog Containment and Best Friend Fences: A Safe Alternative

One of the easiest ways to prevent dog escaping behavior is to keep our dogs safely confined inside a fenced yard. But what kind of fence is best? If you want to keep your dog safe and maintain an attractive yard, you might think of two options, a traditional fence or an electronic one, but there is actually a better alternative.

Why You Should Avoid Electronic Fences

Electronic fences work on the system of a buried cable in the ground. Your dog must wear a collar at all times for this system to work. A transmitter on your property sends a signal to your dog’s collar. When your dog gets too close to the buried cable he receives a shock to make him move away from the boundary and stay in the yard.

A professionally-installed electronic fence can be quite expensive. The batteries in the dog’s collar must be replaced often, depending on how much your dog tests the boundary. They are also expensive and must usually be purchased from the electronic fence company.

Some dogs can be hard to train using the electronic fence system. Such fences claim to be highly effective, but it only takes your dog getting out once for him to be injured or killed.

In addition, these fences have the enormous drawback that they keep your dog inside the electronic fence, but they do not keep any other animals or dogs out of your yard.

Plus, what will happen if the batteries die or the transmitter stops working? Your dog can walk right out of your yard!

What About Traditional Fences

Many people like traditional fences for their yards but they can be expensive to put up, too. And, over the years, a traditional fence can become an eyesore. Fences sag and rust. Even an ordinary chain link fence is not much to look at. If you live in a lovely area, a traditional fence can block your views. Some neighborhoods will not allow you to install traditional fencing. What can you do?

A Better Alternative: Best Friend Fences

There is a better alternative to an electronic fence that will still allow you to keep your yard looking nice, without putting up a traditional fence. Dog Friendly Fences, such as Best Friend Fence, use a dark polypropylene plastic material for fencing. This material is a mesh netting that is virtually invisible when it is installed properly. The Best Friend Fence keeps your dog safe and keeps other animals out of your yard.
