Have you recently added a fur baby to your family who keeps finding ways to get out of your fence? Luckily, we know of a few fortification measures to prevent your dog from escaping your fence in Lynnwood.
Make it Hard to Climb
Footholds of any kind on your fence may give your dog steps to travel over. With this in mind, the smoother your fence the better. In a chain link fence, woven patterns create the perfect foothold. In a traditional wooden fence, the horizontal rails can become makeshift footing.
Leave Zero Squeeze Room
While larger dogs might climb the fence, smaller breeds might squeeze under. Spaces underneath the fence panel may increase over time due to shifting soil. Leave zero squeeze room and prevent your dog from digging by hardscaping the floor beneath the fence,. You can also set a few unused deck panels in this spot to dig-proof the area.
Outsmart Your Dog
Dogs have been known to open gates by tinkering with a loose latch. If you can get the latch open by merely flicking at it with a finger, then your dog can do the same with its paw. Also, a gate latch can become loose over time. Consider replacing a worn latch.
