Top Pet Fencing related questions

Installing wood pet fencing can take 1 to 3 days. Meanwhile, invisible dog fencing can be installed in 1 to 2 days, depending on the size of your property. Factors like the size of the fence and your Tasker’s availability and skill level also determine working time. In general, you shouldn’t have to wait several days or weeks for your Tasker to finish installing your pet fence. Please confirm pet fencing installation timelines with your Tasker.

Invisible fencing can last up to 27 years if the underground boundary wire is left untouched. To ensure a long lifespan for your fence, make sure to hire an experienced fence fitter who can correctly install your fence.

Yes, a healthy cat can jump over a fence as high as 6 to 8 feet! What’s more, average house cats can jump up to five feet or more. As a result, your fence should be 9 to 12 feet high to keep your cat inside the yard. It’s also best to avoid using climbable chain link fencing or wood fencing. Fencing with hard plastic at the top may be a better option, which is difficult for cats to climb.   

When used correctly, an invisible fence won’t hurt your pet. An invisible fence is merely irritating and deters pets from running away. Some pet owners opt to test the invisible fence by holding the receiver (collar) in their hand and holding it over the fence. This way, they can find out what the static correction feels like. The sensation is similar to walking across the carpet in socks then touching a doorknob. 

Dog fence windows and under-fence guards are some ways to prevent your dog from digging under the fence. A dog fence window lets your pet see the outside world without sticking its head out. Furthermore, a dog fence window can keep your dog from going stir crazy from boredom. Under-fence guards made of chicken wire or chain-link fencing can also keep your dog from digging under the fence. 

Some countries may allow adding spikes or barbed wire to a fence. But adding such deterrents may be illegal if it causes injury to animals or even trespassers. In general, it’s not advisable to use spikes as a fence security measure. You can opt for more humane alternatives like prickly shrubs or automatic water sprays. Or you may consult a pet fencing expert for effective deterrents that abide by local council laws.

What do pet fencing services include?

Taskers can help you plan your fence layout and install your pet fencing. Your fence builder may discuss the fencing layout and walk you through the boundary on the day of your installation. Afterwards, your Tasker can start installing your pet fencing. The following are the different pet fencing services you can book on Airtasker. 

Cat fencing 

Taskers can install a cat-proof fence by adding a fence topper system to an existing fence or by building a high fence from the ground up. If you’re building a cat fence from scratch, your Tasker can make sure your fence is high enough to prevent your cat from jumping over. Once your cat fencing is up, you can get a cat flap for your door, so your feline friend can come and go as they please. 

Dog fencing 

Garden fencing can give your dog the freedom to play outside without you worrying about them running off. Wood fencing is best for energetic pups who need a sturdy and tall fence to keep them inside your property. Cheap dog fencing alternatives include metal wire, mesh, chain link, and PVC deer block netting. 

You may also want to consider invisible dog fencing as a safety option. This device sends a mild static shock to your dog when they approach the fence. (Invisible fencing can work on cats, too.) As a result, invisible fencing confines your pet within your yard, even without a physical fence. 

PetSafe is a popular brand of pet fencing. But we can help you find more affordable alternatives by connecting you with trusted invisible dog fence installers near you. You may also consider installing a dog door, so your dog can freely go in and out of your home without your constant supervision. 

Pet playpen fencing 

Pet playpens provide plenty of playtime for your pets in a contained outdoor or indoor space. Whether you need a dog playpen or a catio (cat patio), a Tasker can build it for you! Puppy trainers are also available to teach your puppy essential skills and provide mental enrichment. 

If you and your dog like going on drives, you can also hire a Tasker to install a pet barrier in your car. This way, you avoid the risk of your energetic dog jumping to your lap while you’re driving. You can also hire a Tasker to walk your dog or look after your pup while you’re away. 

Horse fencing 

Horse fence installers near you can assist with your horse fencing installation and maintenance needs. Horse fence types include physical barriers like woven wire, wood, or high tensile. Meanwhile, physiological barriers come in poly wire, electric wire, poly tape, or low-tension smooth wire. 

Taskers may help you plan the layout and size of your fence. With an experienced horse fence installer, you could achieve a sturdy fence. When your horse fence is up and running, you can hire a Tasker to help your kids learn how to ride a horse

I have the cattle rail and all the post in the ground I just need the old timber rails removed and the steel cattle rail put up in its place.

There is cutting of the cattle rail required, as the rails are 6 mtrs long and the existing timber rails are only 2.4 and 4.8, so some adjustments will need to be made in areas. There is only 4 posts that will possibly be needing replacement, however, I have can arrange the old posts are removed.
