Apply fixes to worn out or rotting board fences. If you have a small animal as a pet, one that can easily slip through a small opening, you need to ensure that if such openings exist, they are quickly corrected. If you have large pets such as Dalmatian or great dame, make sure the height of your fence is such that it is impossible for the animal to simply run and leap over. If you have a cat and want the cat to go outside in the back yard, it will be difficult to prevent that feline from venturing outside that safe zone.
