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

  • For Small Dogs

  • For Large Dogs

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.
