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 Location

T post step 1 - mark area

Create a straight line to outline the fence between the two end posts.

Step 2 – Measure Post Distance

T post step 2 - welded wire

Mark the post locations, maintaining a 2-3m spacing between them.

Step 3 – Install End Posts

T post step 3 - end posts

Use a post driver or mallet to sink the end posts 50cm into the ground.  



Make sure the end posts are pointing in the same direction.

Step 4 – Check for Same Height

T post step 4 - same height

Attach a string across the end posts, and check the height of their installation using a tape measure.

Step 5 – Check for Straightness

T post step 5 - straightness

Ensure that the posts have been installed completely straight by using a spirit level.

Step 6 (Optional) – Set in Concrete

T post step 6 - concrete

For a sturdier and more reliable fence, enhance its stability by setting your posts in concrete.



This involves digging a 50cm hole and pouring cement to create a foundation for the posts.

Step 7 – Install Middle Posts

T post step 7 - middle posts

Follow steps 3 through 5 to install the middle posts.


Ensure that the posts are facing in the same direction and are being installed in a straight and uniform manner.


If you want to make your fence even more robust, consider using concrete to secure the middle posts.

Step 8 – Attach Mesh to End Post


Start at the end post and secure the mesh to it by using cable ties. These ties can be threaded through the pre-drilled holes in the post.



You can add extra cable ties to encircle the entire post.

Step 9 – Attach Mesh to Posts


Secure the remaining part of the mesh by following the steps described in step 8.

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.
