Wide Gap Barrier Dog Fence Kit


Prevent dogs from squeezing through gaps on your existing fence.  The wide gap kit uses a durable black powder coated wire mesh that is virtually see through from a distance. It works with any type of fence! 
+ 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.

Exceptional product!

I ordered this because my Yorkie was slipping through the aluminum fencing. This product is very high quality, easy to install, looks great, and keeps him in the yard as well as small animals out! Thank you for the great product and speedy delivery!

Freedom at last!

When we got two puppies, one kept going through my fence. We purchased this kit, installed it, and it has made our lives so much easier! It was time consuming but easy to install. You cannot see it from a distance, but the dogs and our Ragdoll cat love being outside and now are safe within our own fence! I highly recommend this kit to anyone!!

Lots of fence
Terrific Solution!

This was the perfect solution for puppy-proofing our fence. And the zip tie tool was worth every penny and more! I’m not at all handy and had no trouble installing it.

My dog is so happy to run!

We have a three year old Maltipoo who is 9 pounds and small enough to fit through the gaps in our aluminum fence. He has never been allowed off leash outside as a result. I had been searching for a solution after hearing neighbors in similar situations who had installed chicken wire had holes chewed through the wire by other animals making the fence not secure. My daughter and I were able to attach the Dog Proofer along the fence in a large area in our yard by ourselves in a few hours. We purchased some extra large zip ties on Amazon to secure the wire mesh to the larger parts of the fence where the zip ties that came with the product did not fit adequately. I bought the recommended tools (zip tie tightener and wire cutter) and I’m glad I did. Once we got in the rhythm, installation was simple. My dog is excited to be able to run off leash now and enjoys having his small dog friends visit and play!

ZERO escapes!

It’s taken me a while to actually write a review after purchasing and installing the Wide Gap fence barrier kit. We have two little Boston Terriers, one of which is an escape artist. He found that he could push down the plastic barrier we had prior to this. This is saving his life and mine! Since putting up the Dog Proofer barrier kit we’ve had ZERO escapes! The fence blends in to the background and is barely noticeable. We put up about 350 linear feet in a weekend.

Great fencing to keep little dogs in

We have a little dog park in one of our apartment complexes and had some resident complaints about little dogs getting out through the bars of the park. We bought this fence kit and installed it on our existing bars and it works wonderfully. We are very happy with the fencing kit and would recommend to others.
