Dog Fences and Exercise Pens

If you haven't fully dog-proofed your home or garden, a dog fence or exercise pen can help you protect your dog while giving it the freedom it needs to roam.

Whichever option you choose you'll be able to leave your dog in or outside with confidence, knowing they're safe from harm and can't escape. Choose from leading brands including Trixie, PawHut, PetSafe, IRIS and Rosewood.

Dog Fences

The most effective type of dog fence is a gate or extension gate that lets you cordon off an area of the house or garden. Numerous styles can be wall mounted to provide a permanent barrier, while others are temporary and can be extended or moved to different areas.

The most common type of exterior gates are metal with rigid vertical bars. Other options include wooden gates with vertical bars or latticework or hybrid versions made from both wood and metal.

Indoor options tend to be made from plastic and work in the same way as child gates. Indoor gates are particularly easy to install without the need for drills, and you can find heavy duty versions that will keep even the strongest dogs where you want them. A variety of heights and widths are available to suit your needs.

Exercise Pens

Exercise pens will enable your dog to run around freely whatever is going on around them. You can find new and used styles suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Indoor exercise pens are typically made from reinforced tent-like material and feature waterproof floor covering to avoid any accidents. They tend to not have a roof and are collapsible for easy assembly and storage.

Metal exercise pens come in a range of sizes and shapes. Choose from octagons, hexagons, rectangles and squares. Depending on the style you choose, it can be a fixed or collapsible structure with or without a roof. If you're leaving your dog outside in an exercise pen it's a good idea to look for a waterproof roof and cover that can provide protection from rain and shade from the sun.
