How Precast Concrete Fencing Will Keep Pesky Dogs from Digging Under Your Fence

Dogs can be man’s best friend, but dogs can also be a neighbor’s worst nightmare. Dogs that dig can be frustrating, especially if you have children, animals of your own, or even a garden. So how do you prevent your neighbor’s dog from digging under your fence?

The answer is simple; precast concrete. Now I know what you’re thinking, “Precast concrete? That’s just another fencing material how will it help keep these dogs on their own property?” Or maybe you want the fence so your dog can stop digging into your neighbor’s backyard and want to know how we can help. Well, we are here to answer your questions.

It Begins In the Factory

When precast concrete is made, it is poured into reusable molds that are cured in temperature-controlled environments. This process is very delicate, but it allows for the concrete to set properly. Once the precast concrete is cured, it is now weatherproof, pest-proof, earthquake-proof, and digging-proof!


Typically, fences are installed 1-2 feet below the ground, making it easy for the dogs to dig underneath within minutes. However, when precast concrete is installed, it is not only at least 3 feet underground, it is reinforced with footings and rebar anchors. This will allow your fence to stand tall and be difficult to dig under.

Even if the dog is an expert digger, we can adjust and adapt to whatever your needs may be. Typically for a 6-foot fence, we would suggest using at least 8-foot poles, but if you are concerned about diggers, we would recommend using a deeper pole so the fence is harder to get under.

Precast Benefits

With precast concrete, you won’t have to worry about a hole in your fence with a puppy popping through. Precast concrete requires little to no maintenance, and can last for decades without needing a retouch. Not only will they prevent a dog from digging, but also soundproof your home from the security dog next door that barks into all hours of the day or night.

Precast concrete has soundproofing technologies that allow it to absorb the vibrations of the sounds, allowing you to sleep soundly or get your work done while working from home.

Precast concrete also won’t make you sacrifice the beauty of your home. It can be built to mock the beauty of masonry, wood, or even chisel stone. Precast concrete isn’t a gray, boring wall. It can be beautiful colors and cured so that it won’t fade in the sun over time. It is the perfect building material for any home or commercial project.
