An adequate size fence for our front yard?
 
Hey yall. We live on the bayou front in Louisiana. It's much easier for us to put a fence in our front yard for Ally. Not completely fence it in, but fence off about half the yard for her. Does anyone have any ideas or know where we can get a decent price on pet fencing? We'd really appreciate it! Thanks alot!:)

We just used 4' chain link and got it from one of the big box stores.

If you have some type of Ag supply in the area, I would start there. I have used 6' cattle fencing but that was for more of a large pen than fencing the front yard.

I have a 4' chain link fence and run a hot wire on top, just in case one of the dogs decides to try it's luck.

Those are in the back yard :)

Hot wire? Explain please :) I never leave my guys in the fenced dog yard when I leave the house (even for a few minutes) because I live in fear that Tar will finally figure out how easily he could jump my 4' fence :) I have wisteria planted all along the new sections and when it grows in good it adds a leafy bushy foot or two to the fence, but that may take a while.

My past two GSDs would easily clear a 6' fence. Kaya, the more athletic one, would get over 8 footers in her younger years. We now live in the sticks just outside of town, we are in the process of installing a radio fence for Kimber.

pet fencing, is that special fencing?? research in your area where
you can buy fencing. i wouldn't trust a 4' fence.

i wouldnt trust a 4ft fence either. unless you own a 120 pound fat shepherd, it could easily clear a normal fence. i'd look into an electronic fence or at least an 8 ft fence. my theory is anything that you can jump over, a shepherd can definitely jump over.

Yep that's what I do. I learned that a dog can easily climb a 6ft fence so why spend the money for 6ft and have to run a hit wire too.
