Choosing a fence for your Middleburg, VA home is almost as exciting as choosing a dog to live there with you. A good fence is important to keep your dog safe, and the kind of fence you get will depend in part on the kind of dog you own - a big dog may mean a taller fence. There are some types of fences that work better for keeping Fido safe than others.
A basic chain link fence will typically do the trick for most homeowners in the Northern Virginia region. This classic fence is used primarily for property delineation and keeping things in - or out - of your yard. However, there are considerations to be made before purchasing a chain link fence.
For example, the size of the dog should always be factored-in when deciding on a fence. If you are the proud owner of a small breed such as a Chihuahua, the height of the fence may not be as big of an issue as the space in which the small dog could slip through. Any gaps around an old fence, for example at a gateway or where sections join, or underneath, provide an opening that a small dog could easily fit through with a little bit of coaxing and some inspiration - such as the neighborhood cat or squirrels.
However, if you own a 100 pound Chocolate Labrador, the height may be of a bigger concern. A dog of this size can still squeeze through some surprisingly small openings, or dig a tunnel under the fence, but if he is an active one, he may choose to jump over the fence.
Another option in fencing for dog owners in Manassas, VA is a wood privacy fence. These are typically constructed much like small wooden picket fences, but without the opening between the slats and they can be much taller. Wooden privacy fences not only keep the dogs in the backyard, but also block the view of your backyard from neighbors and passers-by. This type of fence is typically suitable for all neighborhoods (but always check with your homeowners association first), and will keep both small and large animals where they should be.
