    Default Need recommendations on dog gates for backyard fencing.

    I'm putting up red-brand no-climb horse fence in my backyard for the pups. I want some gates that are also the no-climb size of 2"x4" squares. The fence is black & I need black gates also. Fence will be 4' tall.
    Any ideas other than custom made?

    Wrought iron? You can padlock it.

    Have you looked at the gates at Lowes/Home Depot?
    They have all kinds, chain link, metal bars and others.

    Any color is fine, you can spray paint it black.

    TSC has some gates made with mesh or light welded wire also.

    Tarter makes a black, mesh-filled gate - though it's a special order. All of my gates are this style (in blue) - love them, but if you have a confirmed escape artist, they probably won't do the trick.

    Priefert also carries them, but not in black:

    You can order the same type of mesh filled gate (like the Tarter gate) from Tractor Supply. They're not black, but it's pretty simple to spray paint them. That's what I'm using for my dog gate.

    Thanks y'all. I think I'm going to use the Prefert gates. I've got them all over the farm & they're tough. I'm going to have to paint them black maybe. I might leave them green as that will match a big shop/garage right beside my backyard.
    Thanks again for the info.
