Our friends at Pool Fencing Sydney would like to talk about Pool Fencing when you have a big dog. As you all know we are big dog lovers and we would like to share there ideas.
When you need a pool fence you need to consider what changes when you have a pet dog? Owning a dog can make it complex to choose the kind of pool fence you should have. Many people want to protect their dog from drowning in their pool or swimming in it when they are not home. Not all the fences will give you this amount of safety for the pet. Certain fences are superior to others and how the fence is installed also plays a part.
Speaking to a fencing company that understands your concerns is the first step. A top quality fencing company should be able to think of a number of solutions that can solve this problem. They should be able to explain to you what type of fence can give the very best protection. The reality is that this really isn’t that challenging to do, there are various fencing designs that can be used to help keep your pet from the pool.
The biggest concerns come form as few different points that the fencing company will need to address:
1 – Can my dog dig under my fence?
Here you may need to extend the depth of the fence or look at making sure that there is some sort of underground barrier to spot your dog from digging underneath the fence.
2 – Can my dog squeeze through any gaps?
Some dogs may look big and shaggy but that is mainly just a fluffy coat. If you are using a bar style fence you will need to check if your pet can fit though the gaps and consider a different option if they can.
3 – Can my dog jump over the fence?
Some dogs are excellent and jumping and can easily jump over 2 meters if they have something they can run up. You may need to get a taller fence or a different type of fence if this is an issue for you.
When choosing a pool fencing company don’t be afraid to ask them questions about dog proof fences.
