The Standard Dog-Proofer Kit utilizes our straight fence extensions to make your fence up to 3' taller. The fence extensions are 1 3/8" by 16 gauge galvanized steel finished with a high quality black powder coating. Welded to the arms are two mounting plates that work on any flat post, wall or fence surface. With U-Bolts the arms will secure to round and square metal posts making them ideal chain link fence extenders as well as working well with decorative aluminum and wrought iron and decorative steel fences. The fence extenders are covered with a strong poly fence material or heavy gauge welded wire that secures onto your fence.
See the "Kit Contents" Tab for information on what is included in each kit size.

Chain Link Fences:
- You will need (2) U-Bolts of the appropriate size for to secure on Houdini-Proof arm to around chain link post. We sell U-Bolts in sets of (2) so one set of U-Bolts is what you need to secure one arm.
- It is not easy to measure the diameter of round chain link posts due to post caps and top rails blocking access to the top edge of posts. Use a soft tape measure like used for sewing to measure the circumference of the post... a circumference of about 5 1/4" = 1 5/8" post, a circumference of about 6" = 2" post, and a circumference of about 7 5/16" = 2 1/2" post. Usually, chain link fences have bigger posts at corners, endpoints, and gates.
- The tubes for gates are usually smaller (1 3/8" diameter) tube. Use a 1 5/8" U-Bolt to a gate tube. If you have a single door gate that will open in, you need one arm on both the gate hinge and latch-to posts and an arm on the gate on the latch side. A double door gate opening in would require that both gates have an arm where the gates meet. For outward opening gates, you need one on each gate post and one on each side of the gate. the arms on the gate need to be set higher so that when the gate opens the arms on the gate can pass over the arms on the posts.
- Plan on ordering 1 additional bag of ties for use at the bottom where the fencing material from our system meets your chain link fence. The two are secured together with 1 tie every 12 inches around the bottom perimeter.
Decorative Aluminum/Steel and Wrought iron Fences:
- Use square U-Bolts to secure the arms to the posts. We sell the most common size of 2". Check your post size. you can also use self-drilling/tapping screws or drill and use bolts. It is likely you will need to use self-drilling/tapping screws or bolts at gates.
- Plan on ordering 1 additional bag of ties for use at the bottom where the fencing material from our system meets your fence. The two are secured together with 1 tie every 12 inches around the bottom perimeter.
- Where possible, attach the arms to the posts with outdoor wood screws or lags. At corners, you may need our Corner Adaptor Kit as the corner arm needs to point at a 45-degree angle.
- Outward opening gates require an arm on both sides of the gate and those arms need to be higher than arms on the gate posts so the arms on the gate can swing over the arms on the posts.
- Inward opening gates require an arm on the gate posts and an arm on the gate on the latch side... Cut the fence between the arm on the latch post and the latch side of the gate and the gate will open.
Secure the arms to the wall with masonry fasteners (4 per arm).

Our dog was happily clearing the fence in our yard. We could see he thought it was pretty funny. We did not share the humor as we need him to be safe from various and sundry animals here in Maine. So we added the extension fence. It took us a couple of hours to install it and it has worked perfectly. We have a safe dog. That's all the counts. Very happy with this product.
I could not be happier with this product. Our new dogs were able to easily jump the existing 4' chainlink fence. This was SO much cheaper (and easier) than replacing the exisiting fence with a taller one. I'm not handy at all and I had no problem installing it myself. It's durable and blends right in with the existing fence.
Thanks for all your assistance regarding the order and I’m very satisfied with your product. I believe Matt(?) assisted me via numerous calls. With keep you in mind for referrals – our breed Airedale Terrier has a knack for wanting to be on the other side ‘of the fence’!
We rescued a great Dog in November but what she really liked were the Rabbits that roam our neighborhood. She was able to hop over our fences to chase after. We bought dogproofer. Its kept me worry free and your dog can no longer escape. Now if only dogproofer can develop something to keep the Rabbits OUT! Thank you
While I had hoped to introduce my dog to the fence extension safely, naturally, she saw a squirrel and launched across the yard and into the extensions. Thankfully she bounced off safely and has not attempted to jump the fence since. I love this product, it has done exactly what I needed it to do!
Easy to install, looks good. Feels sturdy and durable. Have large puppy who likes to stand at fence with elbows on fence. Scares neighbors, so 3 feet taller fencing is great.
I have a pit bull who after 3 years started jumping my four foot fence. She is so strong I wasn't sure if this fencing would keep her in. It is perfect. She cannot get out! I highly recommend if you have a dog that jumps the fence. I had it installed by my neighbor..but it looked very easy to do.
