FAQ’s

What is the best option to stop my pup from escaping?

If you want to keep your pet happy and healthy a physical barrier is the best option.  Electric and invisible puppy fences will keep your pet from escaping but they can cause damage to the health of your pet.  This has been documented in the TV show ‘It’s me or the Dog‘ (based in the UK and US)

Please look after the health of your canine and stay away from electric shock options.

What is the most cost-effective option?

Electric / hidden options are usually the cheapest which is the reason why pet owners buy them but they do not realise the potential cost to their pet’s health.

At approximately the same cost as an electric dog fence, you can cover 100m area with the plastic field fence.  For most well-behaved canines, this will work perfectly but please read the description before purchasing to ensure its suitability to your hound.

How big should I make my pen/run?

The bigger the better as long as you have space in your yard.  Longer-shaped pens work best as it gives your hound more space to run up and down.  As general guidance we suggest the following dimensions;

  • 2m x 6m for long periods of time
  • 2m x 4m for short periods of time

The area should double in size if the pen is going to be shared
