One of our biggest priorities as dog owners is keeping our pets safe from harm. Our dogs rely on us to protect them from the dangerous they can’t see or don’t know about, such as cars in the roadway, animal predators, and illnesses. We also keep them healthy by encouraging exercise and feeding them a healthy diet. Exercise is essential for their physical and mental health, and dog owners with yards are fortunate enough to allow their dogs to move and explore until their heart’s content. That is, as long as that yard is safe and enclosed.
An electric dog fence is one way to enclose your yard and keep your dog inside its boundaries, but why do people choose them instead of traditional fences? There are several advantages (and disadvantages) to wired dog fences that many people don’t consider. Here’s a look at some of the things you can think about when choosing a fence for your yard.
