Pets are an important part of your family, and often thought of as another member of the family, which means you need to do your part to keep them safe from harm. As a homeowner in San Diego with a pool, installing a pool safety fence for pets is vital for keeping your dog and other pets safe from possible drowning incidents in your pool. Pets can be victims too and unfortunately though many dogs can swim, many are too small to get out of a pool if they get in, or a ladder or step are too difficult to climb, or in some cases, the pets may have health issues or may be of old age.
There are many situations a pet’s life can be in danger, so a pet fence is the best solution to keep little furry friends safe! There have also been incidents where a pet goes onto a pool cover, but pool cover has a small hole and the pet gets stuck with water coming in and leading to drowning. These are sad stories that we as pet owners can prevent! Again, this is why layers of protection for pets are so important.
Mesh Pet Fences Versus Invisible Pet Fences
Many homeowners prefer to have an invisible fence installed instead of an above-ground fence. Typically, the reason behind this decision is for aesthetic reasons, as many fences are not complementary to a homeowner’s yard.
The biggest problem with invisible or wireless fences is that they are only about 70% effective when it comes to deterring a pet from crossing the boundary. This is not a sure way to prevent your pet from gaining access to the pool and they often cause a dog to become aggressive or fearful over time because they are being hurt. If this happens it might make it more difficult for you to keep your dog outside.
These fences also do not work for puppies who are more likely to get themselves into a dangerous situation with a pool. Finally, in the event of inclement weather, the electric fence may not work at all.
A Life Saver safety fence on the other hand will always function to keep your pets out of the pool because the Life Saver fence is the only actual physical pool barrier that can keep dogs, cats, and other pets out. Plus, the near transparent mesh and ability to customize the color of the mesh and poles means it is also an aesthetically pleasing option.
Custom Pet Safety Fences Options
42” is the most commonly requested height for our removable pet pool safety fences. However, if you need a fence that is higher or shorter to accommodate the size of your pet, we can discuss this at your consultation and install a fence in the height that is right for your family. We also have a range of color options.
A pet safety fence is the best option available to homeowners when it comes to keeping your pets from gaining unauthorized access to your pool area. This type of barrier will also keep them from getting onto the pool cover which can become a costly repair. Additionally, homeowners with puppies, or older pets who may be partially blind and may not realize they are near the pool will also benefit from installing a pool fence to protect their pet.
At Life Saver Pool Fence San Diego, we are experts in pool safety fence installations and offer custom removable pet safety fences for your yard.

Homeowners commonly use these dog runs to prevent them from having access to certain areas of the yard, or for limiting where they can go to the bathroom.
