Here’s a small area that we fenced in for a customer with a dog.  Split rail is an economical way to contain your dog (it’s good for kids, too).  To make it secure, we add welded wire mesh to the fence.  For dogs, we also recommend a ‘tension wire,’ which is a heavier gauge wire that is stretched tightly along the bottom of the fence to keep the bottom nice and tight.  This discourages dogs from trying to dig or ‘nose’ their way under the fence.

The most secure gates for split rail look like this one, constructed from western red cedar.  The lightweight construction and close-spaced pickets make for an extremely secure and reliable gate.  Beware of the gates that match the split rail fence, as these are excessively heavy and notoriously unreliable.
