Most homesteaders do keep dogs — often to protect the livestock — but whether your dogs are working dogs or pets, this is a great way to keep them safely contained until they are mature enough to be on their own on your property. You can keep an eye on them, they cannot get into your garden, your trash or other places they are not supposed to be and cannot harm other animals. YET they can still run, play, and just be dogs!
