The fact that approximately 44% of all households in the United States include a dog only underscores how popular canines are as pets. After all, is there anything better than having your best friend rush to the door to greet you with joy every single time you return home (even if you just ran out to buy a few groceries)?
Dogs really are man’s (and woman’s) best friend, which is why it can be absolutely devastating if your dog gets out of the yard and becomes lost. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, 620,000 dogs who enter shelters as strays are returned to their owners each year in the United States. These are the lucky animals who are discovered and re-connected with their owners before some tragedy befalls them. Unfortunately, many lost dogs stay lost forever.
If you want to ensure that your furry best friend stays by your side for life, then make sure your outdoor fencing is strong. Consider using stainless steel wire mesh, which can hold up to scratching, biting, and play even from big dogs.
