A little picket fence keeps my three golden retrievers from going upstairs uninvited.

I used simple pine boareds and include a stand. Note that the fence is supported by 2×3s attached to the pickets and then decured to a 1×6 making for a nice blockade.

How long have you had it up? I’m wondering how long it will take them to figure out how to move it. :-)

I have one end secured with an artificial vine and the other end can get tucked into the woodwork of the staircase… see the rubber tip in the first pic? And look at the bottom stand… one pooch decided to gnaw on it for a while.

Nice solution. Charlie, around my house when the dog gets smart enough to figure out my blockades – he’s officially smart enough to live on his own :-))

Looks nice. You’re lucky it works :-)) When my irish setter wanted into the back of my 4×4xFord, she would jump in with the tail gate up. that was about 5’. When my Newfie wanted out, she pushed her way through a the bottom of a chain link fence gate! I never would have known how she got out if she hadn’t left quite a bit of hair forcing her way through.
