+ Expand Product Description

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 Dog Proofer’s 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 dog fence kit comes in two heights: 24 inches and 42 inches. Ideal for a small dog fence, the 24" barrier works 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 can’t squeeze through the fence, but you and your pet can easily see through it. The welded wire can also be trimmed to accommodate certain heights or work around obstructions in the fence line. For reference, the diameter of the individual wires that make the mesh is about 2.0-2.2mm.

This dog fence 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 small dog fence is installed easily with only a pair of heavy-duty snips (aviation snips/tin snips). No other tools or skills are required!

For households with multiple dogs of varying sizes, you might find that while small dogs can squeeze through a fence with wide gaps between pickets, larger dogs might jump or climb over the fence to get out. Consider combining dog fence kits to secure your dogs. Combine a Wide Gap Barrier Kit with one of our fence extension kits to keep dogs of all sizes safely contained.

Installation Instructions

Wrought Iron / Aluminum ⏤ UV-resistant zip ties (included) are used to hold the wire mesh to your existing fence securely.

Wood ⏤ Use heavy-duty "fence" or "romex" staples (not provided) to hold our dog fence kit to wood surfaces. If pickets are small enough, zip ties can also be used.

Brick & Block ⏤ Our small dog fence can also be installed on these surfaces. Specialty masonry fasteners will need to be used with washer heads to securely hold the mesh wire to the surface.

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.

Works on Rabbits and Coyotes too

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.

Amazing customer service

The product failed our 4.5 year old Shepard mix dog. She was able to pull it from the existing wrought iron fence by breaking the plastic ties. What impressed us was that the company actually does stand behind their product. They emailed us back once they found out I was not submitting a 5 star review- and sent us replacement barrier along with steel ties. We appreciate a company standing behind a product and trying to help us keep our pet safe and contained!

I installed the 42” fence and it looks great. Our mini Australian Shepherd can’t make his great escapes anymore. Very satisfied!

David Rennie
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.

So Glad I Found Dog Proofer

The Dog Barrier Fence worked perfectly. You can hardly see it against our black wrought iron fence. So glad I purchased the Zip Tie tool. It made securing the fencing much easier. I highly recommend Dog Proofer. Worth every dollar.

The Second One is a Winner

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.
