Dog Gates Protect Your Children And Valuables
The purpose of dog gates is to keep the pet out of certain areas in and around the home to both keep it safely and combine it with protecting your child, the furniture and other important things. Gates for dogs can be both attractive and functional. These are generally made to resemble normal gates with slats fixed to a rectangular frame and with the combination of two rectangles, it is a gate. The slats can be fixed horizontally or vertically and close enough to prevent the dog from getting his head and neck caught in between two slats. They can be made from the finest available material, in many styles and designs and also match the home decor.
Some of the most common dog gates are made of wood, wrought iron and metal with adjustable and retractable doors. There are also stylish dog gates that last for a long time and available in a variety of materials with a life time guarantee. Some of them can be used to protect the dog from climbing up the stairway and are called stairway gates. These measure from 26 inches to 40 inches in height and can prevent most dogs from climbing over them on the stairs. Some dog gates are available with a small door or flap that will allow a smaller breed of dog to pass through but not one which is from a larger breed.
There are both indoor as well as outdoor dog gates. The indoor gates protect all the things you do not want to lose and the outdoor gates protect the dog from hurting itself. Some of these are tall and freestanding and some short and attached to an existing door and this depends on the breed of the dog. Then there are flexi gates, easy step high guard gate, lock and block sliding door gate, auto close gate, extra wide walk through pet gate and a maxi and extra tall maxi gate. Pet owners do not like to settle for a cheap dog gate and prefer something that looks good.
