The Right Fence for Your Dog
Electric Dog Fences
Pet safety measures are essential at home, including safe enclosures that will allow your dogs to have plenty of outdoor exercise, yet keep them from roaming unattended. Wandering dogs are more likely to be injured by vehicles or meet up with unkind people. It's also illegal in most areas to allow your pet to be out of your home or yard when not on a leash.
To allow your pooch to be outside in your yard without you and remain safe, make sure your fencing is tall enough and strong enough to keep your dog contained. Many dogs try to dig out under the fence, so it's crucial you regularly check for gaps around the fence perimeter. Teach everyone in your family to carefully close doors and keep gates latched.
Additionally, it's important that your pet wears a collar with an identification tag at all times, just in case that gate is left open by mistake. Most cities require that all dogs wear a collar and license tag, but even if you live in a rural area without this rule, an ID tag on a collar will likely ensure your dog will be returned home to you by anyone who finds him. You may also want to consider microchipping. This is an easy procedure where a small silicone chip containing your contact information is painlessly inserted under the dog's skin, usually at the scruff of his neck. Most animal shelters and veterinarians automatically scan lost pets for a microchip.
aIf you do not have a fenced yard and adding one is not an option, electric or electronic dog fences are renowned for effectively and humanely keeping pets safely in their own backyard. Electric dog fences do not hold a voltage, or plug into an outlet. With electronic fences, you have a transmitter that plugs into the wall. Your pet will wear an electronic collar that will receive a radio signal from the transmitter. Electric fences are safe and effective because they use a static charge. Electronic Dog Fences use the electronic collar to give a warning as the pet approaches the boundary line. As Fido gets closer to the boundary line, the static correction will increase. This safely and effectively teaches your dog to stay within the boundary lines. Premium, Deluxe and Basic electronic dog fences are available to provide you with the best solution for your furry best friend.

No matter what type of fence you find is right for your Fido, don't forget to inspect your dog's outdoor area. Dogs, especially puppies, find plants fun playthings. They love to dig in the dirt or pull branches off shrubs. Because of this, make sure the plants in and around your home aren't a health risk to your dog. The following common house and garden plants are toxic to dogs: English ivy, mistletoe, philodendron, elephant ear, azaleas, chinaberry trees, oleander, wisteria, and hydrangea to name just a few.
