Dogs and People
It is natural for a dog to want to bark at people walking by on the street, but it can be very intimidating for people even if the dog is not a large dog. Often putting a fence between the dog and passers-by will use the stress level. In some cases, a privacy fence is enough to keep a dog from barking. Sometimes not being able to see the people walking by is all it takes, however, some dogs will bark at the fence even though they can't see what's on the other side. Hearing people walk by is sometimes enough to set the dog off. The dog is not misbehaving. In fact, your pet is just trying to protect his domain.
Choosing A Fence Style

If your only concern is keeping pets in and people out there are solutions that will provide no privacy whatsoever. Chain link dog fencing is very durable and typically made from galvanized steel, and while there are some options for inserting plastic slats in the links to help add privacy to the fence, that will not take away from the industrial feel of the fencing. In contrast, wood fencing can we use around your property and has a much nicer look to it. It can be painted, stained, or left natural if you prefer that look. There are also many different heights so you could have a 3-foot fence to keep your dogs in or a 6-foot fence to provide more privacy. What you choose for your yard depends on what you want the fence to do.
