Who Let The Dogs Out? 2 Types Of Fencing That Will Keep Them In

Posted on: 17 August 2015

Do you have dogs that love to be outside, but they will not stay in your yard? If so, you should put up some fencing to keep them in and other dogs out. Below are two types of fences that will work well for this purpose.

Chain Link Fence

Chain link fencing is a popular type of fence not only due to its durability, but also because it may be less expensive. All chain link fencing has a woven framework, but you will find that there are different materials to choose from.

The wires are available in PVC coating, galvanized steel, and stainless steel. The fencing may also be coated with zinc, which prevents the metals from rusting. PVC coating may be best for residential use, as it is rubberized and bonded to the wires, which gives it a softer look. PVC coatings come in standard colors of green, brown, and black.

Visit a fencing company, like Elrod Fence Co, who can show you the different types of chain link fencing to help you make the best informed decision. You do need to be concerned with the height of the fence, and make it tall enough so your dog cannot jump over it.

Aluminum Fence

Aluminum fencing is a step up from chain link fencing. It looks like wrought iron, but is less expensive. It is available in many options, which can make your landscaping look more elegant. When choosing an aluminum fencing, you have different weights to choose from. A heavier fence is best if you have a large aggressive dog.

Besides the standard black, other colors are available, such as white, green, bronze, beige, sandstone, and gold.

When shopping for this fencing, you will have the option to choose from two-rail, three-rail, and a fancier three-rail. The two-rail has one rail at the top of the fence, and another rail at the bottom, Pickets are spaced between the rails.

Three-rail aluminum fencing has two rails at the top, and a rail at the bottom with the pickets spaced between them. If you want to get a little fancier, choose an aluminum fencing that is often called puppy pickets. This type of fencing has closer spaced pickets at the bottom. This works well if you have small dogs that may be able to squeeze through the pickets.
