Having a superior view from your backyard increases the enjoyment of your outdoor spaces as well as the value of your property. for many homeowners buying a house with a golf view is the realization of a lifetime dream. With more and more golf courses opening across the nation we have noticed a rise in questions regarding a common problem:
How do I preserve my golf view while at the same time keeping my dog contained?
Golf view backyards are often left unfenced or feature a rod iron, or white picket fence with the idea of maintaining a full view allowing home owners to fully enjoy the expansive view without compromises. These types of fencing solutions are quite attractive to the eye but when it comes to dog ownership they present multiple challenges. These are some of the most commonly reported problems related to fencing and containment in homes with golf views:
- Escape artist dogs jumping the fence
- Small dogs leaving through the gaps of a rod iron fence
- Increased barking in response to golf course traffic and activities
- Inability to give your indoor dog unsupervised potty breaks in the backyard
A traditional wood fence is never an option when a property has been selected and purchased specifically for the view. Even if a wood fence is optional many home owner associations have specifics in their covenant that limit your fencing and containment options when it comes to planning for your dog’s safety.
Limited Outdoor Activities Leads to Canine Obesity
If you are considering keeping your dog strictly inside and even looking into options such as the indoor potty for dogs you may not be making the best move for your pet. A life with limited outdoor activities often results in dogs that struggle with weight issues that often express themselves in heart disease or issues with their hips.
