Pet Containment Safety Considerations
considerations of physical (traditional) pet containment:
your dog is tall make sure that the pet gate or fence you install
is sufficiently high enough so he won’t be able to jump or crawl
your dog is an aggressive chewer you should choose a pet gate or
fence that is made from material that he won’t be able to destroy.
You should also check that it is not possible for your dog (or small
child) to get his head stuck between the openings.
make sure that the gate is firmly attached so that your dog won’t
be able to push it over or open it by leaning on it. If you are
installing a pet gate on a staircase you should not get a pressure
mounted pet gate. For a staircase your safest bet is to go with
a hardware mounted gate so it is not possible under any circumstances
for your pet to knock it over.
you can see, there are a wide variety of ways to confine a pet.
Each type has pluses and minuses. None are perfect solutions and
you as a pet owner will need to evaluate each possibility based
on your needs, your lifestyle, your budget, and your pet. But do
choose one. With choices ranging from traditional fences to modern
electronic pet containment systems, there is no reason to take chances
by letting your pet roam loose. Containing your pet will keep him
safer; he will lead a healthier, happier life; your neighbors will
thank you; and you will be glad to have the convenience and freedom
