PupProtect™ add-on puppy panel converts new or existing ornamental style fence into "puppy panels" professionally and affordably.

PupProtect™ is practically invisible against your landscape avoiding the busy look of other puppy panels.

It is the perfect solution for existing fences or in lieu of expensive ornamental puppy panel fence sections.


Designs to fit most manufacturers’ 5/8” and 3/4" picket ornamental fencing. Offset installation can bridge the lower rail to fill in the gap on extended picket sections.

Panel can be racked up to 25° to fit biased panels. Flush wires are cut smoother rather than snipped for safety and the flush edges help prevent pets from getting a collar hooked.

PupProtect is packaged to convert 10 ornamental fence panels per box. Split sections styles would be 20 sections with hardware.

Strong - 4 gauge (5.75mm) galvanized steel wire horizontals and 8 gauge (4.15mm) steel wire pickets are powder coated for long life.

Easy installation - using the provided clips and stainless steel self tapping screws (on 6' panels for aluminum-galvanize carbon steel screws provided with 8' panels for steel fence) or alternatively with the included UV resistant zip ties.

Optional clamps are available for more secure installation without screwing into your fence. The set screw clamps the clip, replacing the screw.

Determine the center to center spacing of your existing fence. The easy way to determine center to center is to measure a level (not biased) section from the far side of one picket to the near side of the next. For some shop fabricated fences spacing varies from picket to picket so measuring 10 openings (far to near) and dividing that measurement by 10 will give you an average. (Ex: 44.3" for 10 openings is our 5/8" picket standard 4.43" spacing) Compare that to the center to center measurements on our shop drawings. Note that if your spacing is slightly different you will gain or lose that amount from center for each picket going each direction. In most cases this might be 1/8" to 3/8" at the final picket which has little impact either aesthetically or for keeping your pet in. 

1. Position the PupProtect panel against your fence panel centering the center picket in the center opening of that portion of your fence panel. Attach with included brackets (or zip ties) at both ends and also in the center on 6' single panel and the corners of 6' (shown) and 8' split panels. Download INSTRUCTIONS for more detail.


1. Establish the angle of your fence and make a paper template to easily gauge how far to bend the PupProtect panels to match. The template will help you AVOID over bending and bending back as this will unnecessarily fatigue the metal. 
2. On a scratch resistant surface stand on each end of the panel and gently but firmly bend the pickets until they are parallel the template of your installed fence. 

3. Attach to the pickets of your fence at the corners of the PupProtect panels.

4. Where needed cut the horizontal rails even with the last picket with a hack saw or jigsaw. Touch up the cut ends with zinc rich primer followed by quality semi gloss paint.

Flat Track Hardware

Flat Track Sizes:

"How do I choose a track size?"
Simply double the size of your door(s) to determine the proper track length. Example: a 36" wide door will need a 6' track. Example: (2) 36" wide doors will require 12' of track.

Finish Options:

"Tell me more… "
Choose from a variety of powder coated finishes or raw steel. Our powder coated finishes consist of a durable baked-on finish. All powder coated finishes have a matte finish.

Quantity of doors on track:

"What's this?"

Bottom Guide:

"What's this?"
The Bottom Guide keeps the door steady. The T-Guide is a floor mounted guide that requires a groove in the bottom of the door. The C-Guide is a floor mounted guide that cups the bottom of the door and is also available in an adjustable option. The Wall Mounted Stay Roller is a wall mounted guide that works with doors from 1-1/2" to 2-3/4" thick. This is an ideal guide for extra thick doors and exterior applications.

Door Thickness:

"Why do I need to specify a door thickness"
We ask for door thickness so we know what size of carriage bolt to include in the hardware kit. Carriage bolts attach the hanger to the door. If your door's thickness falls between sizes, simply round up to the next available size.

End Stop Option:

"What is an end stop"
End stops keep the door from flying off the track. Standard end stops are designed to fit at the far ends of the track, secured by the lag bolts. Adjustable end stops slide along the rail and tighten down with set screws wherever you wish.

Wheel Style:

"Tell me more … "
Choose from a variety of wheel options such as a matching steel wheel or a black Hush wheel. Or upgrade to a stainless steel wheel or a stainless steel Hush wheel. Hush wheels are made of a high quality, durable polymer and make for smooth, ultra-quiet operation.

Fastener Option:

"What's this?"
This refers to carriage bolts (which attach the hanger to the door) and lag bolts (which help secure the track to the wall). Choosing your fastener finish lets you customize the look of your hardware kit to your liking.

Box Rail

Box Rail Mounting:

"What does this mean?"
Please specify whether you want to mount the hardware kit to the wall or the ceiling so we can ensure you receive the proper mounting brackets.

"What's this?"
