Summertime is officially upon us and just as much as we dog owners like to get outside to enjoy the warm sunshine and summer breezes, so do our pups! Not only do they love to be wherever it is that we are, they enjoy the freedom that a secure, fenced-in backyard provides.
Healthy Dogs, Happy Dogs
In addition to the freedom, it’s no secret that there are many benefits to allowing your dogs to engage in some regular exercise every once in a while, especially if they spend an extended period of downtime indoors. Even if it’s just to run or walk around the backyard to stretch their legs, regular activity helps to keep their joints healthy and limber while reducing common risks such as heart disease, obesity, digestive problems, and a long list of other ailments. In addition to their physical health, dogs that get out regularly are also less susceptible to depression, stress, and other emotional and behavioral issues.
Peace of Mind
A securely fenced backyard not only benefits our dogs, but it can benefit us, as pet and home owners, in many ways, as well. First, it allows us the freedom to allow our dogs to get outside for much needed exercise while we tend to other things. After all, let’s face it, you’ve got stuff to do indoors and can’t always spend all the necessary time outside with your dog. But with a fully enclosed fence around the perimeter of your backyard, you’ll have the peace and confidence that comes from knowing that your precious pooch is safe and sound in your own backyard while you take care of some other things inside. No fear of them running away, no need to chain them cruelly to a tree, and no fear of other predatory animals. In addition to keeping other unwanted animals from encroaching on your pets and your property, a privacy fence also helps to keep people off your property and their peering eyes from looking into your backyard and maybe even your house without permission. After all, if you can’t feel safe at home, then where can you ever feel safe? A privacy fence will not only help you with that, but it can also increase your home’s value, as well.
