There are numerous varieties of dog gates available in the market and they can confuse you to the core to decide which one is right for you – like which one to be used for large pets, which gate works best in an apartment or which gate to choose when you have two pets of both large and small breeds. Here are some tips:
Outdoor Dog Gates
It’s better to choose an outdoor gate, if you want to keep your dog safe on your patio or fenced in a yard. The gate should be made of sturdy, water resistant material that can withstand storms, rain as well as a little punishment from your dog. The gates made of Eucalyptus look nice and designed to withstand rain and sun. You can use a freestanding dog gate leans against the stair bottoms or wall. To create a playpen area for your pet, the gate that has panels and can be locked together should be chosen. It’s better if it can be pulled apart or arranged in a straight line to block a pathway.
Dog Gates for Apartments
Freestanding pet gates are good for apartments because they can be set up and removed easily, without any installation. So, it does not leave any hole or mark on the walls. If you want to block just one opening, you can go for a dog gate that will just fit the size. However, if you want to block multiple areas, choose a pet gate that can be expanded to different widths.
Pet Gates for Extra Large Dogs
The tall dog gates are exclusively made for the large species of dogs, so that they can’t walk over them whenever they feel like. Some of the walk-thru gates that are attached to the wall or door frame stop your dog to walk out, but allow you to exit or enter freely.
