    Default Bunnings pool fence

    I'm thinking of putting up the pool fence from Bunnings. Only our back yard is fenced so I thought of putting it up out the front for my dog to keep him away from kids in a shady, fun and safe enclosure. I figure he can't climb it, he can't fit through it, the kids can't get to him and if I put shade cloth around the outside, he won't be able to fight through the bars with stray dogs.

    What do you think of that idea? Anything anyone wants to add? He with have a tree, a sandpit, a pool, toys, food and water dishes and will only be in it during the times kids are here. He's a 3yo Jack Russell.

    Instead of the shade cloth i'd go the green mesh.. i think it's a bit more sturdy.

    I'd be worried someone might try to steal the doggie!

    I thought about mesh, but worried he would climb it?

    Nobody would steal him, he is high maintenance

    I've got a bit of time, my brother has him during his recovery so I don't even have him at the moment. He won't be back until September at the earliest. I'll put the pool fence up first then go from there. Thanks, I will look at different types of mesh. I'll also put a dog house in it and cover the part where the dog house and food and water dishes are. That way if it rains or is particularly sunny he will have that area.
