PETA tested. Puppy approved.

peta-logoPet Playgrounds believes all dogs deserve to run free so we donated a 5 foot tall dog fence to PETA who found a family that had 2 dogs that were living on a leash. Check out the pics of PETA installing and testing our unique DIY dog fence system, then read PETA’s blog about their experience.

Here is an excerpt of their review:

“Installation was a breeze (no digging necessary!) and took just a few hours. The fence is made of chew-proof heavy-duty polypropylene mesh and should last about 15 to 20 years. Before leaving, our staffers watched as Lexi soaked up the sun and rolled around in lush green grass that she had previously had little access to. Use the coupon code PETA to save 5 percent on the price of a DIY fence kit.”

How much does it cost?

Our prices are based on height and length. To find out how much your Dog Fence Kit will cost you first need to measure your yard. We sent PETA a 5 foot tall fence with 200 linear feet of material (length) along with 1 gate. This kit costs $1,700  If you wanted to get this same 200 linear foot kit installed professionally, your total cost would be $3,075.

Frequently Asked Questions about our Dog Fence

Many pet parents think they need an installer’s help to decide where their fence should be installed, but that’s simply not the case. Since our fence is incredibly flexible, it can be installed virtually anywhere you want.

How do you measure?

  1. Walk the area you want to enclose
  2. Count your steps
  3. Multiply your steps by 2.5x

By asking homeowners and renters to measure their yard, we are able to save $450 on every dog fence that is ordered. Every penny saved is passed on to you.

The first step is to measure how many linear feet you need, then you can get an immediate on-screen quote and purchase your kit right here on our website.

One of the most important components that is included in every kit is our 1,100 break strength polypropylene mesh. This material is incredibly strong and flexible. Our competitors choose to provide lower quality 400 pound break strength garden fencing materials and sell them as pet fences. That’s not what we do. It’s not safe, and it won’t contain your dog. 

What you are seeing here is a tree that has fallen down on a Pet Playgrounds Dog Fence after a hurricane and how it was repaired in just minutes. See the how our fence compares with traditional fences after a storm here >

Let’s compare what happens when a tree falls on wood or chain link fence compared to a Pet Playgrounds Dog Fence.

With just $85 of parts and 20 minutes of time, a Pet Playgrounds dog fence can easily be repaired. It could cost thousands to fix a wood or chain link fence.

Our kits take 10 days to reach you. We ship your kit via FedEx in numerous boxes, but some of the packages are oversized. Even the smallest kits are at least 250 pounds, which means using a faster shipping method is cost prohibitive.

However, something to keep in mind is that if you call most traditional fencing companies they would require at least 14 days to schedule your install and your dog will still likely be able to escape  and many times when an installer runs into a boulder or another obstacle they will charge you more – we don’t.

It can help to have something tangible in your hand. That’s why we’d like to give you a sample that comes with a free consultation with an Pet Fence Expert.

Think an invisible wireless underground dog fence is cheaper than out DIY Dog Fence? Well, it’s not. Let’s compare the costs of both.

It is impossible for us to guarantee that our fence will be 100% effective all of time. We have measured the effectiveness of our dog fence for the past 10 years. Running the numbers with the customers that have provided us with feedback shows that our fence fails about 2% of the time. Keep in mind that invisible underground electric wireless fence systems fail 30% of the timeand our DIY Dog Fence Kits are actually cheaper than getting a invisible electric fence.
