    I was thinking of doing a 15ft wide x 32ft lg area fenced in,in one coner of my yard as an area for my dogs.the 15x32 will be fenced in by a wood fence,and they will be in above ground pens.Opinions on would that be alright that they won't be able to see much,like the rest of the yard and would that have a negitive effect on their minds,like making them skidish.

    i dunno how well a wood fence would hold unless u had em on chain setups so they couldnt get to it

    why if they are in pens do you feel the need to also fence them in? you are going to basicly give them a 480 square ft world with nothing to look at but a fenceline. is there a reason you are scared of the rest of the world seeing your dogs?

    now days you need a fence because people who see your dogs on chains they assume your a dogfighter.

    There are plenty of reasons to keep people from looking at your dogs. This sh!t is getting out of hand. Why dont we just put all our chain spots in FRONT of our houses so the whole f**king world can see what we have. There is some assinine(sp?) remarks being thrown around.

    Not to be a monkey but, I do DO this! I put my dogs on chains and my neighbor that is a Cop and my other neighbor that is a Lawyer don't say CRAP! I could careless because as long as I am giving them food/water/shelter and walking them daily than I haven't done anything wrong.

    But a 15x32ft is good but for how many dogs? Let me give you my experience so far. I use to have 5 dogs but now down to 3 only. All my dogs use to be in the yard on chains and but recently I just purchased a 12x18 shed (with one window) for them to stay only at night because of the cold ass winter PA gets and inside of the shed I have 4 5x5 6ft kennels. And when I go to open the shed door in the morning, they are like a bunch of crazy dogs trying to ripp threw their kennels to get out. Limiting to what them see will change their behavor but it's important that you DON'T lock them up like this 24/7. So if you are using this 15x32 wooded fence than make sure your dogs get alot of exercise.


    These people are stupid! Hell, I had walkers hounds on chains growing up and they'd get your ass in a heart beat. My bulldogs will lick ya to death! Lol

    I agree that you havent done anything wrong, however there are those in the world that you need to be mindfull of that would like nothing better to dictate how you care for those animals.

    Ppl like to cause trouble and like to impose thier view and restrict your rights. You might think that your niebors are ok with it.....but do you realy know what's going on in the back of thier head?

    Meeting the basic reqiurments are not enough in this pet utopia that these asswipes are trying to create.

    What will have a negative affect is lack of handling.

    Two reasons mainly,1.) just out of respect for the people that live around me,thought it would be easier with them in one area,than being all over the yard digging holes and what not and so my kids can enjoy the yard too and not have to play out front.2.)I live in the inner city and I don't want any one looking at my dogs thinking that they could steal one and try to make it fight,or to breed it with god knows what.So I guess it's to protect my dogs and to try and respect others.
  16. In my opinion, you have valid reasons for doing what you want to do. Especialy, so the kids can enjoy the yard, on their terms and not the dogs terms.
    You mentioned that they would be in above ground kennels. If so, you won't have to worry about wooden fence damage or digging out.
    In my opinion this set up will mean more time needs to be devoted to the dogs. If they can see out they will see things, from time to time, to get excited about, and get a little break from boredom, by barkin & jumpin up & down [if they can't run along the fince or run along or arround a chain attachment]
    It is important to worry about your neighbors. But how can you please them?
    If people "see" the dogs, they git excited, because of what they "see".
    The kennel is to small, the holes in the bottom are too large or too small, it's too hot, too cold, or somethin. The dogs bark too much. The dogs keep the people from sleeping, day or night.
    The chain is too short, too heavy, too light, too long. The collar is too tight, too loose, too narrow, too wide. Too much chance of the chain gettin tangled, the house is too small, large, hot, cold, wrong material, shape, even wrong color. Chains are cruel.
    The people will not be able to see the proper dog tags, clearly enough from the street as they drive by.
    If the people "don't see" the dogs, they get excited, because of what they "don't see".
    By not seeing the dogs, and only hearing them, the people will believe you have all sorts of monster dogs in your yard. With no water, no food, no shelter. The dogs will still bark too much and stink. The ac will be called out to verify the peoples night mares, and kill your backyard deamons.

    It is a no win situation.

    But I say "Do what works for you and your family, where you are."
