Size of your dog The size of your dog is an important factor in choosing the right system. A small dog between 5 lbs and 12 lbs needs a receiver collar that delivers lower correction levels than you would need for a larger dog. By the same token a medium sized dog between 10 lbs and 60 lbs will need higher levels of correction than a small dog. And large dogs (over 60 lbs), depending on temperament, may need even higher levels of correction. Careful consideration should be given in the case of very large dogs to environment and temperament before choosing to install an underground fence. It may be necessary to install the underground dog fence in conjunction with a traditional fence for these dogs.
Changing a Wood Fence Picket: Changing a Fence Picket is almost self explanatory. In the Dallas Texas metro the choices of fence pickets are starting with the best then to the last are Cedar (3-4 different grades), Composite ( recycled materials like Trex, Correct Deck ), Pressure Treated Yellow Pine and Spruce - Fir - and White Pine ( These are all in the white wood category). The white woods typically have a longevity of 7 - 10 years unless a good weather sealant is applied. Once again make sure that your screws or nails are of the proper length and either hot dipped galvanized or aluminum. You can attach a fence board to the top of the pickets or a nylon string to use to keep the top straight as you fasten them to the rails.
Basic Privacy Fence A standard cedar privacy fence typically measures six feet in height and features tightly-fitted boards. The top is usually flat for a smooth, even appearance. One way to add interest to a basic privacy fence is to use dog-eared boards instead, resulting in a dynamic pattern along the top. You can also experiment with different board widths or alternating board heights.
Picture Frame Fence The picture frame fence is a more decorative variation of privacy fencing. Its name comes from the vertical posts and horizontal rails that frame the sections of fencing. The framing adds both charm and opportunities for customization. You can select the board height, the number of boards each frame will contain and whether or not the frame and boards will match. You can also embellish a picture frame fence with additional wood trim.
