Electric fencing and a fence made from conventional materials, such as wood, metal or masonry are basically the two choices available for homeowners looking for a new fence, either of the solutions having pros and cons. Here are some features that you should consider before making the choice between a traditional, physical fence and a wireless, electric fence:

  • Costs and installation – electric fencing is usually cheaper to install than traditional fencing, especially for large areas that need to be surrounded. In the case of electric fencing, the installation needs to be handled by professionals, but it is usually a quick process that causes minimum disruption in the area of installation;

  • Aesthetic aspects – electric fencing is invisible, no part of it obstructs the view, so it cannot be used for visually enhancing curb appeal or for concealing anything on the property. On the other hand, traditional Denver fences are great for aesthetic purposes;
  • Aspects related to usage – electric fences are great for preventing the escape of pets, especially in the case of animal companions with an inclination towards digging and jumping over. However, visible fences might be more suitable for dogs suffering from anxiety – a solid fence structure reduces the amount of stimulation, therefore keeps such dogs calmer.
