Over the next 15 weeks we will be talking about things that can harm your dogs in your own backyard. 

1. Fences 

“Wait a minute. Isn’t your fence supposed to keep your dog safe? It should, but some types of fences can actually be dangerous for dogs. Vetinfo reports that though fences are necessary, so-called “invisible” fences can be painfulfor your dog. And electric shock fences can also malfunction, resulting in burns or electrocution. (PETA is against these kinds of fences, too.)

But a more standard kind of fence can also be dangerous for your dog. As Whole Dog Journal notes, some dogs dig under or chew through fences. That can result in injuries for your dog and, obviously, your dog escaping. The solution? Make sure your fence goes at least 6 inches deep. Use mesh to line a fence that your dog wants to chew through. And most importantly, don’t leave your dog unattended in a fenced yard for hours on end.“
