How do you block a gate from a dog?
You can use chicken wire, hardware cloth, or a piece of chain-link fence attached to the base of the fence. Some people bury it for aesthetic reasons. But you can also lay it on top of the grass and hold it down with rocks, gravel, mulch, or even planters. Pour a concrete footer.
How do I get my dog to stop jumping on the gate?
If at any time he jumps the gate, say ‘uh-oh’ and calmly bring back in to the right side. Go back and work at the last stage that he was comfortable. Move through any stages that you are out of sight very slowly as having to return to him to put him back in will be rewarding to him.
What can I put under my gate to keep my dog in?
Cut a pressure treated 4” x 4” landscape timber so it fits tightly between the gate posts. Dig a trench across the gate opening as deep as the thickness of the timber. Position the timber in the gate opening so there is just a small gap between the timber and bottom of the gate.
What can I put on the bottom of my gate to keep my dog in?
1. Secure chicken wire or wire mesh to the bottom of a chainlink, wood or wire gate. Cut a piece that is roughly double the length of the open area and as wide as your gate. For example, if the gap is 3 inches tall with a width of 36 inches, cut a 6-inch by 36-inch piece of chicken wire, using a pair of wire cutters.
Can dogs jump over dog gates?

How do you keep animals from going under the gate?
To keep out animals that dig, install an L-shaped footer made of galvanized, welded wire mesh underneath your fence. The wire mesh should extend in a L shape under the ground, preventing animals from digging under it.
