Is your dog going through the gaps of your wrought iron, aluminum, or wood picket fence? We have a simple solution without using an unsightly barrier or unnecessary shock collars. These types of fences were not designed with smaller dogs in mind. With the Dog Proofer Fence Barrier Kit you can quickly and easily create a long-lasting barrier around your fence to keep your small dog in.
Made of black vinyl-coated heavy-duty galvanized steel wire, our barrier comes in two heights: 24 inches and 42 inches. 24" tends to work well for smaller dogs with limited jumping ability. The 42" inch version is for the more jump-prone breeds. The welded wire squares are 1.7" x 1.7" so your dog cannot get through it, but so that you and your pet can easily see through it. The welded wire can also be trimmed to accommodate certain heights or to work around obstructions in the fence line.
The kit is secured to your existing fence with heavy-duty UV-resistant zip ties which can be installed by hand or with our Zip Tie Tool accessory (potentially saving you time, providing a cleaner look, and less hand fatigue).
This quick fix for your dog getting through your fence is installed easily with only a pair of heavy-duty snips (aviation snips/tin snips), no other tools or skills required!
For households with multiple dogs of varying sizes you might find that while small dogs can go through a fence with wide gaps between pickets, larger dogs might jump or climb over the fence to get out. Consider combining a Wide Gap Barrier Kit with one of our fence extension kits to keep dogs of all sizes safely contained.

Wrought Iron / Aluminum - UV-resistant zip ties (included) are used to securely hold the wire mesh to your fence.
Wood - Use heavy-duty "fence" or "romex" staples (not provided) to hold fencing to wood surfaces. If pickets are small enough, zip ties can also be used.
Brick & Block - Can be installed on these surfaces as well. Specialty masonry fasteners will need to be used with washer heads to hold the mesh wire to the surface securely.
I installed a power coated black metal fence with 1 3/4" gaps between the pickets. I found my Yorkie had wiggled his way through to freedom! That was short lived as I installed the dog proffer fence and Botti is no longer free to roam the neighborhood. It was very easy to install and blends nicely with the existing fence.
My purpose is not to keep dogs in but two fold, keep the rabbits from burrowing under the fence to let the cats escape out of the yard. The secondary purpose the metal net also has be advantageous to detouring the coyotes. I know it is not rated to do this but there have been some cases of wire bent in the shape of a of running speed nose print! Score to date: Fence 4+ - coyotes Zero.
Title is not an exaggeration. The product truly helped keep our 45 pound Australian Collie contained. Super easy to install and it looks great. From a few feet away you would never know its there. If you have an aluminum style fence this is a must have product to truly keep your pets safe. Its amazing how small of a space even a medium size dog can squeeze through.
I installed the 42” fence and it looks great. Our mini Australian Shepherd can’t make his great escapes anymore. Very satisfied!
This is the second barrier we’ve put up and it’s a keeper! We had dogs break into our fence and attack our dog. The puppy panels prevented our dog from getting out, but this barrier is much better. It keeps dogs in and out, plus the lawyer is happy because a child is now prevented from sticking their hand inside the fence.
We have wrought iron fencing with 4 inch centers around most all of property. On one side the fencing is 5 inch centers. This has resulted in our little baby getting our 3 times. Installing the dog proofreads fence has saved the day!
