When I bought a house with a large garden, I didn't think I would need a fence. However, once I bought a dog all that changed. My little pooch kept escaping from the garden and vanishing. I would have to wait up for many hours for him to come home. One time, he vanished for 3 days. I was out of my mind with worry as I wandered around the neighbourhood and putting up 'missing' posters. I contacted a fencing contractor and then talked about my needs and helped me to pick an attractive picket fence. Now I can rest easy, knowing my dog cannot escape. I decided to start this blog to advise others about the best fencing options for them.
