P

eople love their dogs and
want them to be safe and
secure, which means building the right type of fence for a dog's
size and temperament is increasingly paramount.

"The growth in the pet products industry
demonstrates that pet parents are increasingly pampering their four-legged family
members, and they want more space in their
yards for them to roam freely," says Charlie
Larsen, president of Larsen Innovations LLC
in Huntington Beach, California. "This is
where the right perimeter fence comes in."

Most of the options within the industry - ornamental, wood, PVC, walls and
chain link - serve this purpose, given that
the height and opening sizes within the
fence are appropriate to the size of the pet,
Larsen says. Kennels are a great option when
pets need to be confined to a space within
the yard periodically or when perimeter
fencing isn't allowed or preferred in some
neighborhoods.
A chain link, wood, vinyl or ornamental
fence built to a height which suits a customer's dog size is a great way to keep animals enclosed in any area, though pre-made
dog-run panels held together by clamps can
be easily built, painted to any color and are
very easy to maneuver and install, says Greg
Walsh, the Niagara Falls, Ontario branch
manager of Rite-Way Fencing (2000) Inc.,
headquartered in Calgary.
"They offer a small area for a dog to
play and relax while remaining safe and
secure," Walsh says. "They are also mobile
so you don't have to worry about concrete
or another permanent install in your yard."
Chain link is best suited for pet owners who are cost conscious and handy
with assembly, tools and working with
their hands, says Marie Huff, marketing
director at Jewett-Cameron Co. in North
Plains, Oregon.
"While these are most often the least
expensive option, they do require much
more assembly than other designs,"
Huff says.
Jewett-Cameron offers one of the strongest panel designs on the market today,
with vertical heavy duty 5/8-inch tube
infill with Euro design vertical bar panel,
2.5-inch spacing, 1 ¼-inch tube frame and
durable two-step powder coat frame finish,
she says. Euro panels also have 1.5-inch
raised legs for easy cleaning, and there is
a welded horizontal bar for added strength
and durability.
