Thanks for pointing out that you should think about if your dog likes to dig or if they jump and how high they can jump. My German Shepherd, Hugo, love to dig holes, and he keeps on digging under the chain link fence we have right now. I'll have to find a fencing contractor who'll be able to replace it with a new type that Hugo can't dig under. http://www.surelinefencing.com.au/services-products

My daughter just bought a house and I would like a fence to wrangle my grandchildren. What is the best type of fence just to define the play area for kids and nothing else?Security vs. privacy.

I am planning on getting a puppy this summer. So, I liked that you explained that if you need a fence for a dog it needs to be at least a 3-foot tall fence. That is good for me to know because my yard doesn't have a fence at the moment. http://superiorfenceofclover.com/type.php
