Considering pets, I prefer to stay away from any fencing with open picket points. I have seen pets jumping on the fence and getting their collar hung up on a picket. So the Lancaster style of smooth top is a good one and of course the tall wood picket fences.

If you have friendly dogs that love attention open fences (spaced pickets) will allow them to see people outside. Even the taller privacy fence work here because you can just space the pickets apart an inch or two.

Agressive Dogs

You have to be careful with this one. Some breeds have tendencies toward aggression, but not always. Many years ago I had a very sweet doberman that was so gently with family and friends. Dogs will typically get annoyed easier when they get to the twilight years. Protection dogs also fall in this catergorry. If you have an aggressive dog you need to make sure of complete privacy so as not to let small hands in to pet the doggie.
