This isn’t high woodworking but thought I’d post it in case someone is looking for an idea for a dog barrier.
I made 1-5’x2’ and 2-4’x2’ and legs from one sheet of 1/2” siding Plywood. The feet are made out of scrap popular that I dadoed, cut and glued on.
I’m hoping to make shelves for the garage out of these after she’s grown.
Cheers!

doesn’t look big enough to me. That pup will be big in no time at all.

Pics of the dog please.. more excited about your new pup than the barrier…

Good luck with her… what is she?

Great and easy to control the untrained dog.

I would suggest for other folks looking at a dog gate. Design it so the dog can see through some sort of wire or spoked grid. The dog is much less like to try to get over if they can see through, especially if there are people on the other side. Dogs like to be with their people….

Great idea LesB!
For us these are temporary barriers, mostly to keep her on the tile floor while potty training. Someone is always with her so we can run outside to the spot when needed. Potty training is mostly done and we’ve opened up the den but still leave the hallway to the bedrooms closed off.

Nice looking fellow Jeff.
They are such great dogs. We had a german shepard years ago and I didn’t want to get another dog after he passed, He was such a great dog that I thought it would be unfair to the next dog to follow him. Well, the wife and daughter found a pup at the pound and we had that guy for many years, but he recently passed and my wife wanted another german shepard, so here we are.
No regrets except for the lost sleep, it’s like having a baby again. Although she is sleeping through the night now.

somehow that (Like having a baby never goes away)... German Shedders are big babies. Loyal, mine missed the brain dept… but what a great dog. I hear you on losing one. My avatar was the ONE. He was a border collie sheppard mix with a little dobie.. he was as smart as they come, it tore me to pieces to have to put him down, but I could not watch him in pain any longer. 18 good years…

I agree with Les, being able to see them is a good idea, but make sure that it’s not a foot catcher. Holes probably the best, but be careful on snout size, you don’t want them being able to grab it and pull it away. A balancing act to get it right.

Enjoy her, pics as she grows up. What’d you name her?

Oh, the joys (and frustration) of a German Shepherd pup!! Have 4 year old and 18 month GS girls now. Avatar is my prior pup (best shop companion of all time). Enjoy, and make plans for the next size barrier ;)

Have your say...
