Walk the perimeter of the area you want to enclose, counting your steps the whole way. Multiple your total steps by 2 ½ and that’s the amount of linear feet you need.


How much fence do I need for my dog?

Victor Boemmels General, Ordering & Customizing

This is a question we are asked almost every day. For most breeds we recommend a 5 foot tall fence and a minimum of 200 linear feet of fencing. While we offer kits as small as 100 linear feet, these were designed primarily to be used as expansion kits for existing customers and for smaller dogs (like a shih tzu).  A small 100 foot dog fence kit does not provide enough area for most dogs to run and play, and therefore your dog will constantly try to dig, climb and chew his or her way out of the small enclosure. This concept is difficult to understand, but here is a diagram to help you visualize the exponential difference in space you can give your dog when you purchase 200 linear feet instead of a 100 linear foot kit. As you can see with the …

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. Do to leverage, the greatest tension on the post is along the horizontal wire furthest from the ground. Using a brace kit we are able to transfer that tension back …

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.
