Default Got my fence up!

My son just moved up to the property to help me set up my rescue since my daughter and her bf left me and the special girls here after 2 1/2 weeks. I've done a lot of the work myself in the past 4 months, but some things I really needed two people to do. So, once he arrived and got settled in his cute cabin, we finally got a chihuahua proof fence up around the 5th wheel and RV. Now I don't have to lock them up in the shed enclosure when I go to town.

The back yard is shaping up nicely. Still have some things to clean up and move. I wanted to plant grass and flowers but it's too late in the season.

My son petting Lexxi. We need new wire on that side, my neighbor gave us the fence, but it has many holes in it. We had to block them with boards for now. I will replace it as soon as I can.

On the other side, the fence is in much better condition. In the background, the brown building is my son's cabin and the blue shed and fence I used for the dogs when I went to town.

Reggie still looking for a way out...

It's 15 acres and I was always so worried at night because of the wild animals around here. I'm so glad I have a way to keep them safe at night after dark.

Looks good! Do you have hawks or just land predators?

Watch for snakes going through the fence and make sure their never alone. Coyotes and jump and climb fences as can other predictors.

Too late on the snakes, Pepper already got bit. We do have Snake B Gone that we sprinkle around the outside of the fence. And because of the size if my pack and the presence of Bouncer, my daughter's lab/pit mix, coyotes don't bother them. Especially so close to the RV and trailer. When they are out at night, we have the generator on and that keeps them at bay, too. After we turn off the generator, all the dogs are inside. Coyotes will go after a dog or two by itself, but not a pack of 19 dogs. I do have an owl that lives in the trees, that worries me with Twiggy, but she's never alone. I have seen a peregrine hawk, again only Twiggy is small enough to worry about. I have some puppies, but they are never outside unless I am right there.

Where is your place located. Do you adopt the dogs from where you live? Do you have to have water brought to you? My friends live in Palmdale ca they have to have water brought in. It's really tough and expensive too.

My place is outside Barstow. I rescued all the dogs from Bakersfield or Wasco before I moved here. Right now we have to have the water brought to us by our neighbor. They get the water from his wife's employer's artesian well. But our well is almost in. I think. Lol. I almost bought some land in Palmdale, but the land was flat and vacant with no trees and a jeep trail going right through the lower part. I didn't want part of my land across a trail where my dogs could be hit. So I'm in the middle of nowhere with no neighbors close by where the dogs can run around and bark and not disturb anyone.
