You can use chicken wire, hardware cloth, or a piece of chain-link fence attached to the base of the fence. Some people bury it for aesthetic reasons. But you can also lay it on top of the grass and hold it down with rocks, gravel, mulch, or even planters.
How high should a fence be for a puppy?
As a general rule, small dogs need a fence of at least 1.2 metres high (or chest height), medium dogs at least 1.5 metres high (shoulder height), and large dogs at least 1.8 metres high (which should be above head height). When looking at your dog fencing options, you should also consider whether your dog is a digger.
How long can a dog bark legally?
An ordinance passed in 2010, said dogs could bark for up to 20 consecutive minutes before a neighbor could issue a complaint. That was revised recently so that neighbors can file a complaint if a dog is making excessive noise for 10 minutes during the day and only five minutes at night.
What type of fencing is best for dogs?
Dog fences made with wood, metal, vinyl, and other solid materials work great for dogs that are easily distracted by other animals, kids, or neighbor dogs as they can’t see through them easily. Wood fences also add privacy, curb appeal, and overall value to your home.
