|ozzymama||When we build the addition, I will be running an additional 75 linear feet of same fencing, so my budget for it is $3,500 plus labour and fence post digger rental. So at $5,000, it's $67/linear foot, but a wooden fence only lasts 15-20 years and requires maintenance, so that's why we like it.|

I don't have a front yard, I have a house, concrete patio, 9x12' sun room, 3' of garden and 2' of grass, then sidewalk. However it is a corner lot and it runs along the main street, starting at my driveway. It was $3,000 the previous owners paid to fence the back/side yard. It's about $100/panel (pre-fab), plus posts and post covers.

I live on the edge of the city and my front yard is small and goes right up to the sidewalk, the way it's configured it would be difficult to fence it although I've thought about it before. I wouldn't leave a dog out there unattended though, too many strangers walking past. There are some people in our neighborhood with their front yards fenced.
Our backyard has always had a 4 foot chain link fence and it has never been an issue for any of my dogs or fosters. Even my Golden who had jumped that high in a high jump competition before never tried to jump the fence.

|Galathiel||I once had a horse lean until our entire back fence went down. Yay. He figured out that the hotwire had grounded out hehe.|

Only our back yard is fenced. They have about 2 1/2 acres to play in and that is quite a bit for two fully grown dogs. I would e afraid to allow my dogs in the front due to the possibility of getting some one bitten or worse yet some one stealing one or both of my girls. We live in the country and just have that small section fenced in the back and the rest of the property is an oak hammock or wild flower meadow. We are trying to keep our impact on the land minimal and we have all kinds of critters to show for our efforts. I might consider expanding the fenced area to go around the entire house, but Not all the way to the front of the property to avoid the issues above, but that's just me and my situation.

Horses will also 'lean' a fence. They try to get the 'greener' grass and will lean their weight on the fence.

|pets4life||just curious lillie what do the horses do usually when they stick their heads over? do they try to nip the dogs?|

I have my entire property fenced and cross fenced with horse fencing. I've never had a dog scale the fence. The front of my property is a wood fence with horse fencing. I've never had a dog scale that either.
My dogs do not run the property unless I am out with them. But they are in the back yard when I'm not home.
