Pet Fencing North East
Pet fencing is perfect for protecting our pets, the last thing we want is to see them running off towards a busy road, this is where pet fencing comes in.
As a responsible pet owner, keeping your animals safe from intruders and in a place where you can protect them. For pet owners with pets as a livelihood such as hens, chickens, pigs protecting your investment is certainly worth doing with quality fencing. Chickens, for example, will wander if they are given the opportunity. Chicken fencing is important for not just keeping your chickens in but also their predators out.
At Charleton Fencing a wide range of agricultural fencing is offered, from protecting your pets in the back garden to protecting livestock.
In this article, we look at a few of the most popular types of Pet Fencing
When it comes to dog fencing, containment is what most pet owners are looking for, ensuring that your dog is kept in the garden and safe. Fairly standard fencing can help keep your dogs in, however, it will depend on the type of breed you have generally speaking 6 feet is high enough for most breeds.
Both farmers and gardeners often want to keep rabbits out. With families with children, they may love the idea of having a long-eared friend visit.
Rabbit are both small and flexible, you only need a small gap for them to enter your land. Furthermore with all the vegetable chewing they do gives them strong teeth, therefore rabbit netting which is otherwise known as weld mesh.
Chain link chicken wire is also another option, this is often used with rabbit hutches and houses. Beaware that overtime your rabbits can possibly get through it.
Rabbits are also famous for their digging and will no doubt try to get underneath the fencing. Therefore the wire should be buried which is containing them to try and stop them from going underneath. Similar types of material are used also for guinea pigs, ensure you check the size of any mesh openings against the animals you are safeguarding. The team at Charleton fencing can help advise you on the right products to suit your own individual requirements. Animals may try and push their way through holes and they can injure themselves. If you are installing the fencing yourself ensure you take safeguards to protect their welfare.
Chicken wire is designed for exactly this, the things to remember are the height and mesh size. You need to ensure that you have a vertical fence which is beyond their capabilities. Chicken fencing is mainly to keep predators out, generally foxes, sometimes badgers. Birds of prey can also make opportunistic attacks especially on the young. Be aware that foxes can climb and badgers can dig, so again ensure your wire is buried at least a food deep and fold it outwards. Our team can install the fencing for you to ensure it is fitted correctly. Obviously, a roofed enclosure would be a safer option.
Pigs which are not good jumpers can often be kept in with plain wooden barriers, posts and rails or palisade fencing reinforced with wire.
Again they can dig under fences, so consideration needs to go into reinforcing or burying the wire again at ground level.
Sheep fencing needs to be strong and of a decent height, some farmers prefer to use electric fencing to keep animals in. While electrical fencing can help keep your pets in it can also keep potential predators and pests out.
