Our Jack Russell can climb a fence.
Don't let that innocent look fool you...

She was climbing up the side of a 2 1/2' dog fence 
and waking us up every night. I know... she's amazing...
but that had to stop!

I tried the store bought fences and gates... 
she either climbed over the top or broke through.
Tried the crate... no luck.

I decided to build a fence myself...
this way it could be high enough (I hope) and sturdy.

I toe-nailed together 2x4 pieces of wood and attached metal screening with heavy duty staples and screws with washers at each corner and at the center top and bottom...

I stained the wood with a vinegar and 
steel wool solution then added a little number bling...
after all, if I have to have a dog fence in my kitchen
 it should look nice.

A decorative solution to a climbing Jack Russell...

I wonder if she can read too...?
