Real Dog Fences – 15+ Years of Engineering – DIY Kits & Pro Install – 4 Levels of Security – Low Visibility

Non-Electric Dog Fences

How long have you and your dog(s) been ready for a dog fence? Imagine opening your back door and letting your dogs run free—it’s magical and life-changing for everyone. Over the last 15 years, thousands of dogs have taught us a lot about dogs and all types of fences, and we are happy to share that knowledge. Perfecting real, secure, and affordable fencing for dogs is the only thing we do. Our tested and proven dog-specific fences have been engineered with constant improvements and updates to materials and methods for 15 years. Unlike any other fence, ours features proven effective dig, chew, and climb protection with four levels of security to match your dog’s size/mix and your property. Let us help you open your private and secure dog park quickly, affordably, and without changing your view.

Durable & Long-Lasting Dog Fence

Our 1,800-pound break strength steel black PVC-coated square mesh is 17 gauge after coating, with a 20 to 30-year life expectancy outdoors. Engineered to withstand salt and soil contact, this durable material forms the backbone of our proven and redundant two-layer dog fence.

Layered with our unique one-inch polypropylene mesh, this design provides both a strong dig guard and chew protection from inside or out. The combination ensures maximum security and durability, keeping your dogs safe and your fence in top condition for decades.

How Does It Work

Don’t start pouring concrete until you see our unique and proven dog fence kits. Our comprehensive install guides, videos, and professional support provide everything you need to fence your yard securely, affordably, and quickly.

For over 15 years, we have been engineering and perfecting the best dog fences in the world to fit any dog pack and property shape. Your private dog park can be open in hours and last decades with little to no maintenance.

We offer both professional installation and support for DIY installations. Thousands of people have successfully installed up to 200 linear feet or more of gates on any terrain over a weekend. Our design allows for post locations to be adjusted up to 5 feet in any direction, with costs ranging from $9-15 per linear foot. We will help you choose the right level of security, kit, installer, and support to make this happen!

Considering the average local fence quotes of $10,000 or more for fences not designed for dogs, our unique and complete solution offers realistic savings of up to 50% with a fence specifically designed for dogs.

All our dog fence kits use a tested and proven combination of welded metal meshes, with 2 or 3 layers for maximum strength. Our unique proprietary one-inch square polypropylene mesh is infused with Bitter Pro to prevent chewing and is supported by tensioned steel cables for each layer. Powder-coated steel posts, set in no-dig sleeves, ensure flexibility with locations 15 to 20 feet apart.


Stop! Don’t Dig Any Holes

Before you start digging holes and cementing 30 or 50 posts in your yard, consider this: placing posts every 8 feet and deciding their locations for the next 30 years is a daunting task. High local fence prices and the potential loss of your view often halt real fence projects, leaving dogs without a safe space.

Our solution is simple and flexible. You can vary post locations in any direction, using trees, structures, or existing fences as posts. Our cuttable layers of steel and poly mesh, combined with steel rail cables, easily contour to hills and uneven ground. This approach saves time, money, and blends seamlessly with nature.

Instead of altering your property to fit the materials, our materials adapt to fit your property. No landscaping is required, making installation straightforward and preserving the natural beauty of your yard.

Professional Installation Available

Professional installation is available in many states. However, keep in mind that with no concrete or landscaping needed, thousands of people with no prior fence installation experience have easily installed up to 150 feet per day. Our fences can be installed in natural shapes, not necessarily a box.

Our solution is trusted by owners of multi-million dollar properties and renters in every state. They appreciate our fences because they are discreet and can be moved or modified if needed. Enjoy the flexibility and convenience of a fence that adapts to your needs without permanently altering your property.

Premium Quality and Proven Effectiveness

Our 2-layer Dog Fence Kits include 12 high-quality components, while our 3-layer Max Strength kits include 13 components, all chosen and tested to maximize effectiveness. With a life expectancy of 15 to 20 years or more, our kits require minimal to no maintenance.

Max Strength 6ft and 7ft Tall Fences

Proven over 15 years by thousands of happy and secure dogs, our max strength fences are 99% effective. They use three mesh materials at different heights, each layer supported by three steel tensioned rail cables:

  1. Galvanized Steel Welded Mesh: The first layer features 1/2″ vinyl-coated wire, available at 4 or 5 feet tall. This super-strong layer provides ultimate chew protection from inside or outside. The very small openings make it virtually impossible for dogs to get their teeth into it, and its heavy weight adds even more dig protection.
  2. Dig Guard: All kits include a 1-inch welded metal wire that is 3, 4, or 5 feet tall. One foot of this wire lays flat on the ground and is staked with kinked ground stakes every 3 feet, preventing digging.
  3. Top Layer: The top 2 feet of all fences are made with our proprietary 1-inch polypropylene mesh, designed to make the fence incredibly hard to climb in or out. This material is strong yet resilient to tree branches, storms, snow, and severe weather. It has been proven effective with thousands of fences in all 48 states and Canada for over 15 years.

Strong and Flexible Fence Kits

Steel meshes are used for two-thirds of every fence and the bottom dig guard.

In the 6 months since the new fence was installed, there have been ZERO escapes, and believe me, our dog has tried.

Frequently Asked Questions

Pet Playgrounds offers a real, physical dog fence in a complete kit engineered specifically for dogs. Refined and improved for over 15 years, our fence is NOT an electric fence. Kits come with all the components needed to create a safe and secure play space for your dog on almost any terrain. Typically, up to 200 linear feet can be installed in one day by almost anyone!

Unlike invisible electric fences that only attempt to keep your dog in your yard, our physical dog fence stops predators, like coyotes, from entering your enclosure. It’s not an eyesore—the steel cables are similar to modern railings, allowing you to see through the fence and keep your view intact.

Our Fence has Three Unique Features:

  1. One-Inch Poly Mesh: Made specifically for us with UV inhibitors and smaller openings compared to any other poly mesh available worldwide. It runs the full height of your fence (5′, 6′, or 7′ tall).
  2. Anti-Climb Feature: Unlike traditional rigid fences, our fence is a mesh-based layered fencing system. Each layer is chosen for a specific reason and supported with our unique steel rail cables. Kits include three cables for the three-layer Max Strength and two steel cables for two-layer. The combination of strength and flexibility creates a net-like effect that stops 99% of dogs from climbing out and anything else from climbing in. The movement of the steel cable feels like a trap, deterring most predators. We’ve never had a coyote reported in thousands of fences in all 48 states and Canada.
  3. Anti-Dig Feature: Even if you have a physical fence, dogs can often dig under it easily. We are often called when people install a solid, very expensive fence to put our fence in front of it because it has no dig protection. We create a dig guard one foot long at the bottom made of a 1″ square layer of metal staked down every 3′. This has proven over 12 years to stop dogs from digging, especially on uneven ground. The Max Strength three-layer adds even more dig protection with a strong steel mesh layer (1/2″ square) that adds weight, meeting the ground and adding even more dig protection. All dig guards are secured into the ground using our ultra-hold ground stakes every three feet, and over time, the ground grows through it, making it even stronger.

Traditional fences (like chain link fences) act like ladders. Dogs get their paws on the top rail of any solid fence and use it to pull over. Our dog fence makes this almost impossible. The strength and flexibility of the steel cable and the poly mesh at the top create a net or trap-like feeling for anything climbing in or out, making it not worth the risk.

What are you looking at? This clip shows how our fence moves when dogs (or predators) try to climb in or out. Note the top of all layers, each with their own steel rail cable.
Many breeds, especially terriers, beagles, and huskies, love digging. Unlike traditional fences, our fence does not end when it meets the ground—it keeps going for about a foot. Our fence comes with a dig guard, created using a strong 19-gauge steel mesh layer that is secured to the ground with ultra-hold ground stakes. Take a look at the video below because words cannot accurately describe how our dig guard works.
Not at all! In just a short time, the dig guard will almost disappear into the grass and become one with the soil. This zen-like effect will allow you to mow right over the top of it and right up next to the fence.

The Only Real Dog Fence Company

Unlike other fences, which are difficult to install and NOT made for dogs, our fences are specifically designed for dogs. Do the research and you’ll find we are the only real dog fence company in the world, dedicated solely to this purpose.

Why Choose Our Dog Fences Over Invisible Electric Fences

25% of our customers are dog parents who tried using an invisible electric dog fence, only to find out the hard way that it didn’t work.

The Facts About Invisible Electric Fences

  • Painful and Ineffective: These fences can cause pain to your dog and provide no protection from anything coming into your yard.
  • Limited Play Opportunities: Other dogs cannot visit to play, leading to a false sense of security.
  • Frequent Failures: When these fences fail, dogs may not return, fearing more shocks. Many lost dog posters feature dogs with electric fence collars, sadly illustrating this issue.

Our Fence & Coyotes

Our unique steel cable rails, with 2 or 3 layers, provide strength and a slight movement at the top, creating a “trap” feeling for anything trying to climb. We have never had a coyote reported inside any of our enclosures in over 15 years, spanning all 48 states and Canada.

Flexible and Secure Dog Fences

Our dog fence acts as a flexible net that effectively prevents dogs and other animals from climbing. The bottom material is flared inward and secured with unique ground stakes, creating a robust dig guard. This design ensures maximum security and protection for your pets.
