A dog fence is a selection of fencing, fence posts, accessories and hardware in a kit to build a complete dog fence starting from scratch.
These dog fences are not electric and do not shock your pets. They are designed to safely keep your dogs in while also keeping other animals out, without hurting your dogs.
There are 1000+ fence kits, combinations and options within each of these dog fences.
The purpose of this page is to help you compare the choices to best select the dog fence you need. Please compare the dog fence kit information below, there are many different options available since we introduced this product in 1992.
In general, most dog fence customers select these three things:
- A dog fence with overlap. This type of dog fence includes extra fencing overlapped and staked to the ground. This acts as a dig deterrent and covers small peaks and valleys in your landscape your dog can use to escape.
- An all metal dog fence or dog fence with a chew barrier base. Not all dogs are chewers but some other animals are. With an all metal dog fence, an all metal dog fence with a chew barrier base or a poly fence with an all metal base (most popular) you have the best chance of building an escape proof area for your pets.
- A dog fence with tensioning. This includes two strands of 1200 pound minimum breaking strength tension cable. Tension cable helps pull your fence up, when dogs paw up on a fence and their weight pulls it down. With tensioning, corner/end posts are suggested.
