Hi All - In looking at home listings on line in the NE Cincinnati area, I notice that most properties are not fenced. Now I'm from Long Island, and it may be that we are a bit fence happy around here, but a lot of us put up fences to enclose the backyards to keep in pets, kids, and for swimming pool safety. Since a lot of Cincinnati homes have HOA fees, are there fence restrictions in HOA communities? We have two dogs and although I do walk them daily, I would also like a fence so I can let them out the back door when it's raining and so they can enjoy a little freedom to run. Do a lot of folks use electric fences to keep their dogs in their yards? Thanks for any input you can provide.

Many new communities have HOA's and often those have restrictions beyond which the townhip or city has.

My specific community has 4ft height maximum, open-style (not privacy). Still - easy enough to submit and get approval in a very short amount of time.

If you're in a very rural area - a lot of people may not like fences because they don't think they're necessary. I grew up in an older suburb of Detroit, MI - and EVERYONE has fences. So like you, I think a fence (for protection of my dogs, my property) is very important.

Default Thanks!

Thanks for your input, it helped a bit. My sheltie listens and stays with me, but our over exhuberant golden retriever loves everyone and wouldn't hesitate to run off to greet someone in their backyard several homes away or to chase a squirrel into the street. I think a 4' fence would go a long way to keep her out of trouble!
