DIY Dog Fence

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.

 I attached metal screening with heavy duty staples and screws and washers at each corner.

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...?

** Update. Yes, she got out! Climbed right up the wire and over the top!  My new solution which worked perfectly was to add plexiglass to the inside of the fence. This keeps her from climbing the wire.
