If you own a barking dog, you have probably received a few handwritten notes under the door or a few emails from your next-door neighbour. However, there is little you can do to stop your furry one from bringing out their wild side. Every now and then, they may chase a squirrel towards the neighbour's fence or bark at your neighbours as they return home.
You have to understand that not everybody is a dog lover, and the onus is on you to restrain your dog. Fortunately, there are many fencing options that will help you maintain peace with the neighbours. Here are some fencing options to consider.
Solid Wood Fence
If you want to maintain a solid relationship with your immediate neighbours, installing a solid wood fence is a classic way to block your dog's view and keep it from barking at your neighbours as if they were intruders. Solid wood fences are the perfect alternative for traditional-style homes, owing to their rustic appeal. What's more, solid wood fences offer great height and stability, which can prevent an active dog from jumping over the fence to explore the neighbours' yards. Perhaps the biggest drawback of timber fencing is that it requires frequent maintenance to remain in tiptop condition. However, the natural beauty of wood is well worth the cost and trouble.
If you want a fence that affordable, versatile, available in a variety of colours and will keep your dog safely inside your property, vinyl fencing is your best bet. It is a great alternative to the classic wood fencing and will make your yard look impeccably elegant.
Also, unlike wood, vinyl doesn't split, warp or rot and will last significantly longer with less maintenance. A vinyl fence will also take on more impact from a large dog, which means no more peepholes or cracks. Also, you're sure to find a design that complements your home all while keeping your dog contained.
There is no end to the lifespan of a fence your fencing contractor can build using the strong and low-maintenance concrete. Guaranteeing 100% privacy, a concrete wall will make you the best dog owner in the neighbourhood, keeping your dog out of sight. The rock-solid wall also offers you peace of mind knowing that you don't have to keep your eye on your enthusiastic dog.
