We're planning to fence in our yard in preparation for the new puppy we'll be taking home soon. I need something that will be both jump proof and dig proof, even when the dog gets older. The dog is a Golden Retriever x Standard Poodle mix. We estimate the dog should be 45-55 pounds when full grown.
We need the fence to both keep the dog in, and keep stray dogs, wild animals, and the occasional coyote out. We live in a rural area.
I'm looking for suggestions on what type of fence to put up. I'm currently planning on a 5' high fence, wooden round rail frame with chain link over it, with a wire along the bottom to prevent pulling the fence up and slipping under. Should this be high enough to keep the dog in? How about digging under? Is there anything extra I can do when building the fence to make it harder to dig under?
Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
