CHARLOTTE, N.C., January 14, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Getting a new puppy or planning for a small dog can change the style or layout of an existing fence or fence plans. Many new homeowners have small children and pets. It’s part of a great family plan because face it; children love pets!! One of the most popular major purchases for a new homeowner is a new fence - but what if the HOA requires aluminum? Neighborhoods have become more urban, more populated, and the lots have become smaller which can make it unsafe for a little doggie to roam free.
Smaller dogs like a chihuahua or a dachshund can be hard to keep enclosed in a fenced yard versus a larger dog like an English Bulldog. Despite frustrations, there are options for securing a dog that doesn’t involve replacing an entire fence or keeping pets indoors. Whether closing on a home and shopping for a new aluminum fence for Sparky or looking for a quick fix to an existing fence; here are a few options that can give peace of mind while pets enjoy the outdoors:
Puppy Pickets or Double Pickets
Any reputable fencing company will offer these two styles for a new aluminum fence. The “puppy picket” style has 1 5/8” spacing, which goes up about 16-20 inches from the ground then transitions to standard spacing the for the remainder of the fence. The “double picket” is the 1 5/8” spacing from top to bottom. Some customers might find this style more appealing for its consistency. Puppy pickets and double pickets will add around $7 extra per foot to a new fence.
This is a simple and fairly foolproof way to prevent Sparky from sneaking out. It comes in a black or galvanized metal; or even in a plastic chicken wire which is much easier to handle compared to the metal offerings with sharp edges. If a fence is pre-existing; obviously a better alternative to a whole new fence is to add wire. Adding wire to a standard picket aluminum fence is a less expensive alternative to puppy picket or double picket. Standing 24 inches high, this fairly transparent addition will only add about $3 per foot to the price of a new or existing fence.
