Chain link dog run

Here are some interesting things that I dug up on the question of keeping your dog in a chain link dog run. I am only specifically addressing the chain link fence dog run here and not other types of dog run fences although much of this information could be applied to all dog runs.

Of course you can always have a fence put up around your yard but this option is often out of the question for many reasons that I won't go into here.

For starters, no dog should ever be left alone outdoors unless you are absolutely positive that you have provided it with an entirely escape-proof area.

Now if you are interested in building your own dog run or pen, several factors must be observed when building them.

All fencing should have about four inches of the heavy-duty steel uni-body one-fourth inch chain link wire mesh buried under the ground.

This is to keep any dog that would try and dig its way out from doing so and will keep your dog safe from any wild animals or strays trying to dig their way in.

While there are many different materials that you can use on the bottom of the dog run as flooring cement is one of the most recommended because it is the easiest to keep clean and last for a long time. Although it isn't necessary to cover the whole floor of the dog run with it just the part where the dog has its bed and food bowls. As keeping your dog's run clean is so important to both your dog's health and because a dirty dog run is a smelly eyesore, be sure to use a chain link fence that can be cleaned without rusting.
