The Existing Fence Dog Containment Arms when coupled with a welded wire or strong poly fence will secure your 4' or higher fence against jumping and climbing dogs. The arms can attach to most walls and fence types including but not limited to wood, chain link, wire-backed split rail, decorative aluminum/wrought iron, and PVC. The arms are made of 1 3/8" diameter 16 gauge galvanized steel tube and are finished with a UV stable black powder coat finish.
The system was originally designed and tested on an aggressive 95lb ridgeback-pitbull mix who was scaling a 5' chain link fence (site pictured in "alternative views" with arms not powder coated). We have sold over 100 systems in the past year and have no reported problems or escapes.
The arms secure to wood posts with screws or lags, round metal posts (like for chain link) with U-Bolts, and square metal posts with Square U-Bolts. For square wood fence post corners, the Dog Arm Wood Fence Corner Adapters attach to an arm and orients the arm at the proper 45 degree angle for 90 degree corners.
The Poly Fence for Less Aggressive Dogs is a very strong polypropylene with UV
inhibitors that will handle a dog jumping into it repeatedly but will
not hold up to a dog that will grab and rip at the fence with its teeth.
The advantage of this system is the plastic fencing is less
expensive and easier to install than the welded wire option.
The Welded Wire for More Aggressive Dogs is designed for more aggressive dogs that may attack the
fence material with their teeth. The welded wire in
this kit is 2" x 2" 15 gauge galvanized steel with a black powder coat
finish. The welded wire, although heavier in
weight and more difficult to install than the poly option is the right product if you are concerned about your dog attacking the fence extension.
Both fence options are secured to the Dog-Proofer arms with our black UV stable 120lb test Heavy Duty Zip Ties.
If you have a very
large and powerful dog you would consider extremely aggressive, a very large enclosure or other special circumstances please contact by email or call 888-280-4066.
