Powerful breeds

Stop Dogs Climbing: Select Hole Size

If you are unsure of your dog’s ability to climb we suggest going for a mesh hole size of 25mm x 25mm or less. This will ensure that your dog’s paws do not fit into the holes so they can lift themselves up and over the mesh.

Installation Instructions

To Do Explanation

Step 1 – Mark the Post Location


Specify the post locations while maintaining a spacing of 2-2.5m between each post.

Step 2 – Dig Holes


Dig a hole for the posts, ensuring that the depth of the hole is approx. one-third of the post’s length.



Use a spirit level to verify that the posts are perfectly upright.

Step 3 (Optional) – Cement Posts In


After filling the holes with concrete, position your posts within the concrete.

Step 4 – Attach Mesh to End Post


Take sufficient mesh to cover the distance between the initial two posts.


Secure the mesh to the posts using staples or cable ties at 15cm intervals.

Step 5 – Repeat Step 4


Proceed with securing the remaining section of the mesh by following the process described in step 4.

Step 6 – Attach Mesh to Last Posts


Attach the mesh to the last post to complete the fencing installation.

Additional Step to Prevent Digging


Dig a trench along your fence line, then fold the bottom of the mesh at a 90-degree angle to form a 15cm lip. This extension will cover the trench’s bottom.


Use pegs to secure the extension to the ground at every 60cm, then cover it by adding a layer of soil or mulch over it.
