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.

19mm x 19mm

50mm x 50mm

Step 1 – Mark the Location
Create a straight line to outline the fence between the two end posts.
Step 2 – Measure Post Distance
Mark the post locations, maintaining a 2-3m spacing between them.
Step 3 – Install 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
Attach a string across the end posts, and check the height of their installation using a tape measure.
Step 5 – Check for Straightness
Ensure that the posts have been installed completely straight by using a spirit level.
Step 6 (Optional) – Set in 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
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.
