Prevent 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.

Hole size

13mm x 13mm

19mm x 19mm

25mm x 25mm

50mm x 50mm
