For Your Pooch
When installing a fence, you must first choose between several fencing styles, as this can impact how you need to act to keep your dog from digging under your fence. Depending on your needs, you can select options such as chain link style fencing, privacy chain link fence, and ranch style vinyl fence. Frequently, dog owners ask us our opinion on the best way to keep their dogs from digging under their newly installed fence.
Why Dogs Dig
Many dogs have a natural instinct and enjoy the act of digging, while others do it due to a number of potential behavioral issues. When addressing any behavioral issues with your dog, avoid negative punishment because this may increase anxiety-related digging. Not only can this behavior damage your new chain link fence, but it will also make the ground look shabby, and if the dog is determined enough, they can get out and run away.
How To Keep Dogs From Digging Under Your Fence
If you happen to run into the issue of your dog digging under your fence, keep the above points in mind and, hopefully, it will help you keep your yard looking great, and, more importantly, keep your beloved pets safe.
