Traditional Outdoor Dog Gate for Deck

Traditional Outdoor Dog Gate for Deck

Traditional Outdoor Dog Gate for Deck

Description

Perfect For: Wide doorways/outdoor spaces

What We Like: Convertible aspect makes it customizable

What We Don’t Like: Slightly old fashioned

Featuring double-jointed hinges that allow it to be configured in a number of ways, this dog gate has four panels. It is made from wood in a dark brown finish that lends it a traditional vibe. As well as the gate section, a swinging door is included so your pet can make their own way around without you needing to unlock the gate.

Designer Advice

Wood is a solid and sturdy material, but we would recommend placing this dog gate under a patio or overhang covering. This is because painted wood will tarnish more easily. Wood additionally shows marks and stains easily, making this dog gate more of a high-maintenance purchase.

What Users Say

Gate definitely works as we needed. The feet make a big difference and help sturdy it nicely.

Flower Porch Gate for Dog

Flower Porch Gate for Dog

Flower Porch Gate for Dog

Description

Perfect For: Small dog breeds

What We Like: Unique decoration

Not So Good For: Tall dog breeds

Adjustable to approximately four feet wide, this gate can also be folded flat for storage. Made from wood, it features a swinging door type so your dog can wander about when they’re allowed. The finish is bright white to lighten up your space, and the design features a pretty floral pattern. It is also affordably priced. 

Designer Advice

This gate will bring some elegance to an outdoor patio, but note that it’s best for small dogs. As it is smaller in height, large dogs can jump over the top. Still, the flower design would look gorgeous in a farmhouse or cottage-style space, especially if you have a whitewashed patio. Surround with plenty of plants to finish the look.

What Users Say

Very cute gate, which comes with little felt pads to protect wood floors.

Description

Perfect For: Small doorways

What We Like: Narrow but still does the job

Not So Good For: Super large dogs

Constructed from 100% steel, this dog gate is sturdy and, at under $100, ideal for low budgets. It opens via an easy slide handle requiring only one touch to release the safety lock. Moreover, the door design means you don’t have to open the gate every time you need to get through. It attaches via a wall mount for complete security. 

Designer Advice

This dog gate is perfect for the exterior section of a utility section. It won’t look odd inside but will also suit an outside space. However, ensure you wipe it down often, as steel can rust quickly when exposed to the elements.

What Users Say

Stands up to the most exuberant behavior of my German shepherd. Easy to open and close and tall enough to be the barrier I need.
