Defeat for our jumper

Our American Bulldog can clear a 6' fence if she hears a cat. With the dog proofer in place, she ran at the fence the first time, stopped, looked up and had a disgusted look on her face.


I have 3 larger dogs who get very excited when anything passes our yard. I purchased the Houdini-proof dog proofer and couldn't be happier. Now my dogs can play in the yard without worry of jumping the fence to greet the garbage man or people passing. Great product! I would highly recommend it!

great solution to a difficult problem

We have a yard with wood fence and also with chain link. We have a boxer that we rescued that would leap over the fence like it wasnt there. We tried shock collars, invisible fencing, a couple of weird DIY things and nothing was working. Decided to invest in the system from dog proofer and after taking a few hours to set it up our little guy was done escaping. Been over a month and now he doesnt even try. Just enjoys his outdoor space like we hoped.

Disappointed Dog

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.

Best solution for jumping dogs!

The Houdini Fence literally saved my dog from escaping the yard through fence jumping. I upgraded the fence knowing he would try to bite the fence and that was a smart buy as well. He spent a lot of time trying to jump, bite, and body slam his way through and the fence did it's job spectacularly.
I took videos, it was amazing to see!
I now leave him to come in and out as he wants. I no longer worry about him jumping over the fence, and while he still attempts it once in awhile I know he's safe!

Dog Proofer does the job.

So far the Dog Proofer has kept the escape artist inside the fence. Can’t ask for more!

Awesome stuff

We are actually promoting this style of fence. Great product!

Peace of mind!!

I love the Houdini-proof extension system. We installed it on our 6’ wooden privacy fence. We adopted a medium sized dog that ended up being a jumper and this was the perfect solution to keep our new baby safe and sound.

Very satisfied

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’!

Thrilled 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.

Best Ever!

Installing the Dog Proofer is one of the best, proactive decisions I've made to keep my athletic, over-active dog within my fence! It was easy to install, the customer service is great! I'm super pleased!! Worth every penny, it works!

Botti Fence

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.

Excellent product! My dog immediately was unable to jump the fence, and he’s stopped trying.

Elegant fix for a long time problem

We have a husky that just loves to dig. Seems like he hears a cricket in the neighbors yard and that is justification to dig a trench under the fence. We tried putting rocks along the fence, mats, and all kinds of stuff. Our vet office told us to take a look at this idea from dog proofer and we decided to give it a shot. We had it installed in a few hours. After a month the grass grew right through it and we dont even see it really. Brusco will still try to start a dig from time to time but has given up around the fence line.

Easy peasey

Perfect and worked well.
Exactly what I wanted.
Thank you

Must have

I’m so glad I got this tool! There’s no way I could have secured fencing to posts as tightly without it. I did most of the installation myself and this helped me pull slack.

Life saving product

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.

Thank you my dogs are now safe!

Excellent product

The perfect barrier to keep our puppies safe in our yard! Easy to install on our existing fence. Looks nice and good quality!

Emma’s Independence Day!

I have a pack of 6 fur babies :) and we live on a fenced acre. In Feb. 2020, my 6 yr. old Emma Rose decided that she could not only jump out of the yard, but could totally ignore me and run where she wanted. I knew that day that our lives had changed forever. My sweet, spirited, very athletic 45 lb. Comfort Retriever could not be trusted in my fenced yard, even though her big, dark eyes promised she wouldn’t jump out! I ordered a Houdini Proof Extension kit from Dog Proofer, after much research of options. Everything arrived quickly and accurately. It took 2 half days to complete and Emma Rose is once again free! Woo hoo!! The pack is glad she’s back and I love the confidence I have in my back yard fence, once again! Emma Rose got so depressed for the 3.5 months that she had to be on a leash at my side. I get so much joy getting to watch her passion and enjoyment in the yard! Thank you so much AJ and Dog Proofer for giving her(us!) back her(our) freedom!!!! Highly recommend!

Happy Husky, Owner Peace of Mind

I was thrilled when my contractor sent me pictures of the Houdini-Proof kit to prevent climbing and jumping over fences, sold by Dog-Proofer. It was a bit pricey, but the peace of mind is well worth it. Since my Husky, Lexi, also likes to dig, I went back to the site and discovered that they also had a kit to prevent digging. Bought that as well, and now Lexi can run and jump and play to her hearts content (I also have doggie door in the kitchen wall). The kit is very well designed and once installed, the fence and yard still look is not Intrusive to the overall look of the yard and fence. I really love it and send pictures to all my dog owning friends! Now we can get her a buddy to play with and know that they are both safe and secure in their big back yard!


We live in the country and our dogs jumped out of their fenced yard and jumped in with our pet goats and lethally injured one. We were devastated as you can imagine. Someone recommended this company and it solved all our problems. Our yard is huge so it was very pricey to enclose and took a few days but was totally worth it. The design team helped with figuring what we need, and purchasing was simple. My friend and I installed it ourselves to PVC fencing which took additional prep but we got pretty good at it and it went pretty fast once we got it figured out. It has kept them contained now for about 6 weeks. They both tried to jump through it one time only. Highly recommend product, our dogs are contained and our view of our property isn't impacted.

Great product, easy to install.

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 one dog who is the original "Houdini dog", so this really works.

I ordered your dogproof fence kit last winterand didn't need it until early summer which is when we finally installed it. It is wonderful. I have two two-year-old huskies who love their yard and are now content and not trying to escape. I am attaching some photos (one of which we used as our Christmas card) so that you can see how well in blends in with the woods. When it was being installed, I pulled into the driveway and couldn't see the grid above the original fence at all. I thought the people helping me install it had stopped working on it and it was already completed. Thank you so much for being there. I highly recommend your product.

Dog proof fence

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.
