To shock or not to shock your dog. That is the question.

Many people today think an invisible wireless electric fence is the best solution available to keep their dog on their property. Unfortunately, this is simply not true. First of all invisible wireless electric fences are simply not as effective as you might think.

The flexibility of a Pet Playgrounds dog fencing system

Our Pet Playgrounds dog fencing system is so flexible that it can be used in a variety of ways.

This customer already had a decorative fence but it wouldn’t keep her beagle mix in the yard, so we installed a Pet Playgrounds non-electric dog fence kit and left her decorative fence completely in place!

In another installation we had a customer that had a decorative iron railing system but it didn’t wrap around his entire property. So we took care of finishing enclosing his property for him. We highlighted our fence here so you can actually see it. It really is nearly invisible.

Have a rock wall? Not a problem! Our fence can be installed without removing your beautiful rock wall. It’s so flexible it can installed virtually anywhere.

These are just some of the ways you can install your Pet Playgrounds dog fence kit, or one of our professional installers could do it for you! Call us at 1-800-985-9202 for more information, or start shopping now!

The Importance of Fencing

The importance of fencing to your pet’s safety cannot be underestimated. There is a good reason that most shelters, rescue organizations and responsible breeders require that you have fencing in place before adopting an animal out to you. A fully fenced yard keeps your pet off the road and away from the risk of being hit by a car, stolen by a stranger, or picked up by animal control. 

Small breeds are unlikely to jump a fence that is four feet or more tall but athletic, medium to large sized dogs and cats can easily jump four feet and are better off with a fence that is six feet. Jumping is not the only escape risk though. Many dogs are avid diggers and can easily dig under a fence.

So what fence is right for you?

Invisible Fencing. While invisible fencing will keep some dogs and cats in, a truly determined pet will run through the shock which is brief and then keep on going. This is most likely to occur if your pet is chasing something or being chased by something. Below, you can see just one Twitter post, but this is a common problem and happens all the time. It also has no effect on other animals or people, which means that they can come on to your property and attack your pet (like coyotes sometimes do). So, it does not protect your pet from outside predators – both two and four footed. 

Chain Link Fences. Chain link fences are popular because they are cheaper than wood, vinyl, and aluminum fencing but they are not as effective as a Pet Playgrounds Dog Fence. Dogs can use the rigid chain link fence like a ladder, and simply climb right over your fence! Your dog doesn’t even have to be a large or tall dog as you can see in the video below.

Wood Fences. Many people think a premium cedar wood fence will be enough to contain their dog, but unfortunately wood fences simply don’t work. In addition to climbing a fence, dogs tend to dig under a fence as you can see in the video below. Traditional wood fences can be incredibly expensive, and they still won’t prevent your dogs from escaping under your fence.

So, what is the best option? 

A Pet Playgrounds fence is the best dog fencing system that you can install for your dog. To prevent dogs from climbing over the fence we use a 1000 pound break strength polypropylene mesh which is incredibly strong, yet very flexible. This means that dogs can’t get a grip and climb over the fence like they can with chain link fences. It essentially feels like a net to dogs and other animals. This material is also incredibly strong. If you take a look at the video below, you’ll notice that a tree fell on one of our fences after a hurricane. We simply cut the tree to push it off the fence, and connected back the material with a hog ringer (a simple hand tool that we provide in our kits). The whole process took about 10 minutes. If this had been a wood or chain link fence you would have no other option but to remove the broken section and replace it entirely.

Secondly, we use a commercial grade metal hex netting material that doesn’t stop when your fence stops. In fact it continues (towards you) about 6 inches. Although it is not the only component that creates your dig guard to prevent your dogs from digging under, it is one of the most critical components to keep your dog secure and on your property. We then use special kinked ground stakes to keep the metal hex netting material bonded to the ground.

Together, our system is comprised of 11 components that can easily be installed by the average homeowner, or a professional installer can come out to your property and install it for you. Whatever you decide, we think you’ll be amazed of just how incredible our fence works at keeping your dog safe, and keeping other critters out.
