I live in a subdivision that is close to undeveloped wooded property and a river. Even though I’m in the middle of a cul-de-sac, there is no way I will let my dogs out after dusk. I have seen coyote and bobcat in the neighborhood, and a 6 ft privacy fence will not keep them out. Skunk, too.
The place where I board my dogs is in a rural area. They have a very large area for the dogs to play in that is enclosed by a chain link fence. In the area around the chain link fence, they have guard donkeys. They will chase away coyotes and can give them a severe stomping.
