Coyote Attacks are on the Rise

Victor Boemmels Climbing, Performance

Coyote attacks on dogs, cats and humans have increased within the past 5 years nationwide. Researchers are seeing increasingly bold coyote behaviors, including: In suburban areas, coyotes can lose their fear of humans because of the abundant food resources provided. Unfortunately, their food supply may include family pets. Household garbage, dog food, and available water from ponds and landscape are also to blame. Intentional feeding of coyotes by residents is another problem.

MAX Strength Dog Fence Systems for Escape Artists

Victor Boemmels Digging, General, Performance

This customer has 5 dogs, and 2 of them were escape artists – always digging and chewing their way out of the backyard. They chose a 600 linear foot MAX strength dog fence kit with professional installation to keep their dogs in their yard. Our dog fence kits have been purposefully engineered to be incredibly strong, but there are some breeds (and some specific dog personalities) that just seem to chew through everything. For these dogs we created a third layer of protection. A 19 gauge steel vinyl coated welded wire netting material in combination with our:

We’ve upgraded our dog fence!

Victor Boemmels General, Ordering & Customizing, Performance

Pet Playgrounds is continually researching, and reengineering our kits to be easier to install, and to perform better. We’ve upgraded one of our main components of our dog fence kit. Our fence is made up of 2 core materials, our 1000+ pound break strength polypropylene mesh and our NEW 1800+ pound break strength rubber coated welded wire. This new material has replaced the older 18 gauge metal hex wire that we used to use to form our dig & chew guard. Watch our video to learn more.

How strong is our fence?

Victor Boemmels General, Performance

Our fence is comprised of 12 unique components. One of the most important components that is included in every kit is our 1,000 break strength polypropylene mesh. This material is incredibly flexible yet incredibly strong. It is a unique material that no other competitor provides. Why? Because our competitors choose to provide lower quality 400 pound break strength polypropylene mesh that won’t hold up over time. Frankly, our competitors are repurposing cheap garden fencing materials to contain your dog. That’s not what we do. It’s not safe, and it won’t contain your dog. So exactly, how strong is our fence?

Just how strong is our dog fence?

Victor Boemmels General, Performance

Just how strong is a Pet Playgrounds dog fencing system? This video should clear a few things up.

 

Pit bulls (in particular) should have a large, well fenced yard for daily exercise. A fence that is able to contain your large and energetic pit bull is absolutely necessary to protect your dog, the breed, and the neighborhood. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to contain a dog and yet so many people fail to, resulting in “incidents” which harm the breed. There is NO excuse for allowing a bulldog to run loose in the neighborhood. We recommend a 6 foot tall fence with at least 200 feet of room for any large dog. This will give you about a 2,500 sq. foot personal dog park. Our unique fencing materials makes it very uncomfortable for a dog to spend too much time against the fence. This increases the level of protection our fence provides. Every Pet Playgrounds dog fence comes with REAL chew, climb, and dig protection.

Pet Playgrounds makes the safest and most reliable REAL dog fencing system in the world™


Our hybrid dog fence is strong and flexible. It’s so strong it can even stand up to a tree falling on it during a hurricane. Its flexibility is what makes climbing our fence virtually impossible from either side. The fence feels like a net that dogs and other animals simply can’t climb. 
Our hybrid fences do not have a top rail, instead there is a 12 gauge black vinyl coated, UV protected, braided STEEL cable that keeps the fence tight and straight.

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.

Why invisible fences, just don’t work.

Victor Boemmels General, Performance

Nearly a quarter of our customers are dog parents that initially tried to use an invisible electric fence – only to find out that it doesn’t work for their dog. Many people think an invisible underground wireless electric fence is the best way to keep their dog in their yard. However, they are simply not as effective as you might think. Statistics suggest that invisible wireless electric fences are only about 70% effective. This is what happened to Sandy. You can listen to her story in the video below. Here’s why using an invisible underground electric fence is not a good idea: You might think at Pet playgrounds, we’re biased, but you don’t have to take our word for it. According to Victoria Stilwell of Animal Planet’s It’s Me or the Dog: So there you have it. Invisible fences are not the best way to contain your …
