Deck Gates For Pets

Buying Guide

Making sure that your pets don't turn into successful escape artists can be an extremely difficult task. But, that problem can easily be solved with deck gates for pets. Regardless of what your intentions are for using a deck gate for pets, there are a few things you need to take into account.

They are useful pieces of equipment if you have pets that have a full run of your home. A deck gate will give your puppy a safe area to play in and give an adult dog a place for it to retreat. It can also come in handy when you want your dog to stay out of the way of workmen or guests.More importantly, when you're out, a deck gate for pets will give your precious dog more freedom to roam compared to a crate. You can also separate multiple pets or a toddler from your overly energetic pup.

  • Easy Close Deck Gate - This one is made of metal that has a locking system with one-hand operation. No assembly is required for this type of dog deck gate.
  • Freestanding Pet Gate - This one is best used to contain smaller pets. It has side panels and rubber feet to prevent the product from slipping. Because of its low height, you can easily step over it.
  • Walk-Through Deck Gate with a Pet Door - This is the specific type that lets smaller pets in a specific area without having to take out the gate while ensuring larger dogs stay put. Its pressure-mount system and heavy-duty steel are chew-proof and non-toxic.

  • The Size of Your Pet. The deck gate for pets that's ideal for you to use is one that’s tall enough. You would want to ensure that the dog can't jump over it easily. Obviously, you'd need a much taller gate to contain a Great Dane than a Shih-Tzu or Chihuahua.
  • Material. If your dog is a champion chewer, you must avoid deck gates for pets made of plastic, wood, or a combination of these materials. What we recommend is that you stick to metal deck gates, which are resistant to the sharp and strong teeth of dogs.
  • Portability. Would you want the deck gate of your pet to be portable so you can bring it with you when you travel? If so, then your best bet would be a freestanding gate.
  • Operational Ease. If you have kids that must be separated from dogs, then you need a deck gate for pets that can't be latched and unlatched easily. Otherwise, you can opt for one that can be operated with one hand.
  • Installation. For a canine Houdini, you would need a vertical gate that can be installed permanently. If you are handy, install it at an inward angle. This way, it’ll be harder for your pet to climb.

To keep your pets safely on your deck, select the dog deck gate that will withstand harsh outdoor elements. Also, make sure it latches shut, so your pet can't push it whenever something on the other side catches its eye.
