5 Ways To Dog Proof Your Fence

5 Ways To Dog Proof Your Fence

Don’t let your dog outsmart you.

A primary reason why homeowners get fences installed is because they have dogs. However, all too often our furry friends are able to escape from the trenches of our properties. Dogs are a very intelligent species of animal and sometimes they can be smarter than their owners. Do not let your dog outsmart you and dog proof your fence today.

Redundant Fences

Most people do not have the slightest clue of what these are. They are essentially a fence that is within another fence. This will make escaping your property twice as difficult for your dog. It also discourages your dog from making bad decisions like trying to escape and barking at the dog next door.


In most cases, dogs escape from fenced in yards by digging and going underneath the fence. An easy solution to this issue is landscaping. Make it impossible for your dog to dig where they are not supposed to by incorporating a dense shrub line.


Another great solution for those diggers is L-Footers. They are essentially a wire fence laid down at the bottom of your fence that will prevent your dog from digging. It can be buried, but it doesn’t have to be. You can simply just put it at the base of your fence and landscape over it to hide it and keep it in place.


If your dog is an escape artist, he may actually have the ability to jump over your fence. If you are concerned about this happening, this style of fence is right for you. The top of these fences are at a horizontal angle that adds another level of security.

Concrete Footer

If your dog is the world champion of digging, this is probably your best option. Pour concrete along the base of your fence. Once it dries, your dog will not stand a chance at digging through it.
