Rocky yard, Sloped yard and Boulders Oh My!

Victor Boemmels Climbing, Digging, General, Installation

Do you have a rocky yard? A sloped yard? Have you been given an incredibly expensive quote from a traditional wood or chain link fencing company? Leveling an entire yard would be expensive, impractical and time consuming. Our Dog Fence solves all these issues. Our featured testimonial is from Sandy, a foster pet parent from Connecticut Pet Rescue. She shows how our fence can be installed with a difficult back yard. If you don’t want to watch the whole thing you can jump to these important clips with the links below.  Sandy also tells the story of how her invisible underground dog fence, worked for 3 years for her dog Tazy, but stopped working when Tazy learned that all she had to do was run through a 5 second shock to play with other dogs.

Small dog fencing solutions

Victor Boemmels Digging, General, Installation

Small dogs are awesome. Most of the time they are easier to care for and groomers charge less to cut their nails too. However, even small dogs need exercise. Your high energy small dog will inevitably get into trouble if their physical exercise needs are not met. They will become bored and will use their pent-up energy to chew holes in your favorite shoes or dig escape routes under your fence in the backyard. Yes, even small dogs need to be prevented from accidentally leaving your yard and getting hurt.

What is a corner post?

Victor Boemmels General, Installation, Ordering & Customizing

A corner post should be used on a 90 degree corner to join two lines of fence. Corner posts can be used for odd angles where the angle is closer is between 45 and 90 degrees. An angle of 45 degrees may require a corner post, depending the tension of the cable. Additionally, If you do not want to attach our kit to your house and are creating a free standing enclosure you’ll need to add 2 extra post corner kits to assemble your kit. The video describes this process as this is the most common use for corner posts. [fve]https://vimeo.com/173953337/[/fve] The principle of bracing a corner post is simple.

The flexibility of a Pet Playgrounds dog fencing system

Victor Boemmels General, Installation, Ordering & Customizing

Our Pet Playgrounds dog fencing system is so flexible that it can be used in a variety of ways.

This customer already had a decorative fence but it wouldn’t keep her beagle mix in the yard, so we installed a Pet Playgrounds non-electric dog fence kit and left her decorative fence completely in place!

In another installation we had a customer that had a decorative iron railing system but it didn’t wrap around his entire property. So we took care of finishing enclosing his property for him. We highlighted our fence here so you can actually see it. It really is nearly invisible.

Have a rock wall? Not a problem! Our fence can be installed without removing your beautiful rock wall. It’s so flexible it can installed virtually anywhere.

These are just some of the ways you can install your Pet Playgrounds dog fence kit, or one of our professional installers could do it for you! Call us at 1-800-985-9202 for more information, or start shopping now!

How to contain a pit bull

Victor Boemmels Climbing, Digging, General, Installation, Performance

Recently a customer called us because their current fence was not working. They had a pit bull and when they let it out in their yard it would climb their fence. This customer had BOTH a wooden fence and a chain link fence, but these traditional fencing systems could not contain their large dog. This is because wooden and chain link fences actually act like a ladder and assist dogs in climbing over a fence.

BEFORE

Even though our fence is incredibly strong, it is also incredibly flexible. We utilize 11 different components to assemble our fence, but our 1000 pound break strength polypropylene mesh is what helps dogs like this pit bull stay on their property. The material is strong enough to bounce right back up after a hurricane, but flexible enough so that dogs are not able to climb it. The material feels more like a net than a ladder to a dog. Additionally, our dig guard which is assembled from our commercial grade 18 gauge metal hex wire which has been UV protected and vinyl coated prevents this large dog from digging under as well. All our of kits come with REAL climb, dig, and chew protection and our kits also have the added benefit of keeping coyotes, deer, and other dogs out as well.
