The fence brand you trust

If you have pets, one of the must haves for your home, whether in the city or country, is a fenced area for the dogs to play, be it the backyard, a kennel or dog run.

Since 1971, Lynx Brand Fence has offered a wide variety of fence styles and materials including chain link, vinyl-coated chain link, aluminum and ornamental iron, and wood for residential, farm and field, sports and recreation and commercial properties. Lynx brand also manufactures custom designed gates and automated systems as well as dog kennels and runs.

This family owned and operated business started in Kelowna and now has branches in Calgary, Red Deer and Spruce Grove. “We offer full installation services for residential or commercial — from wood to chain link to ranch-style fencing and everything in between,” says Jason Madsen, president.

When it comes to dog kennels and dog runs, all are custom manufactured. “We make all of our kennels and runs to specification. We don’t keep much in stock because most people want a particular configuration,” says Jason. Most customers pick up their custom made kennels from Lynx Brand and assemble them themselves.

Each section of the modular dog kennel is manufactured with 100 per cent galvanized-steel tubing and all welds are painted with zinc-rich rust inhibitors. The kennel’s modular panel design makes hanging, hauling and assembling easy, safe and simple. The chain link wire is attached with galvanized-steel fittings and 9-gauge aluminum tie wires. All kennels have a 36-inch wide gate/door opening, which allows easy entry and safe locking.

Other features include one inch extended legs, which help make cleaning easy; lockable steel door latch that’s virtually inoperable by your pet; and superior door hinge design that stays firmly in place even after years of use. “Our dog kennels and runs are well built to keep your animals secure and safe,” says Jason.

Although Lynx Brand is synonymous with chain link fences, lately there has been more of a demand for ornamental iron fencing and automated gate systems. Lynx Brand ornamental fences are available in a selection of styles and colours that will complement any home’s architectural style and décor. Ornamental iron fences are available in heights of three, four, five and six feet. An automatic gate system is a smart option when you require extra security for your home or business and want the convenience an automated system offers.

When you choose a permanent, in-ground fence, Lynx Brand installs it for you. “If you would like to install the fence yourself we do a lot of cash and carry as well,” says Jason. Whatever type of fence, dog kennel, dog run or custom gate you are looking for, take advantage of Lynx Brand’s free estimate. For more information visit
