Choosing the Best Tampa, FL Residential Fence for Your Dog

Keep Your Pup Safe With Aluminum Fencing

Installing an aluminum fence at your Tampa area home can help you create a safe space for your pet without blocking your view. However, if you have a dog who is easily distracted or tends to bark a lot, this may not be the right option for you.

Aluminum is a great choice due to its durability and safety, and its versatility makes it easy to customize to meet your pet’s needs (think height and spacing). Additionally, the variety of styles allows you to create an elegant, timeless look that may increase the value and curb appeal of your property. Visit our aluminum fencing page on our website to see our many options. 

Dog-Proof Your Yard With Vinyl Fencing

Vinyl fencing is one of the best options for dog owners as they are incredibly durable, long-lasting, and low maintenance.  Fences made from vinyl are more flexible, making them better able to absorb weight and pressure from bigger dogs who like to jump or stand against the fence.

Vinyl fencing is also an attractive and highly customizable option and is easily cleaned with minimal effort, using a mix of soap and water to remove paw prints from furry friends who might like to jump or scratch. Check out our vinyl fence page to learn more about the options we offer.

Safety Benefits of Wood Fencing

Wood fencing is a timeless option that provides privacy and security for your yard.  If your dog is easily distracted, a  solid wood fence will block the view of the street or a neighbor’s yard and help keep your fur baby calm. It can even serve as a sound barrier for dogs who tend to bark a lot.

Since wood fences can be easily customized, a taller fence may help to contain a dog who likes to jump or chase things. However, wood is less resistant to the damage a dog may cause by scratching, jumping, and chewing at it and may need to be repaired or replaced more often. Visit our wood fencing page for more information about what Tampa, FL residential fence styles might be best for you and your dog.

Chain Link Fencing Makes a Great Dog Enclosure

Chain link fencing is another popular option due to its cost-effectiveness and low maintenance requirement. They are extremely durable, relatively simple to install, and can be customized to help extend the life of the fence.

Although chain link fencing will keep your dog out of harm’s way, it does give them a clear view of the surrounding areas, which may encourage barking for dogs who are more easily stimulated. We even do custom dog-run cages, so be sure to visit our chain link fencing page today to see all of the options we offer.
