Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind I have four dogs who love to dig. Two of the smaller ones have gone walkabout after digging under the privacy fence, with the larger dogs aiding and abetting the escapes. Fortunately, on each occasion, with the help of very kind citizens, my babies were returned to this frantic dog parent unharmed. Determined not to go through this experience again, I searched the internet and found this product. I hesitated to purchase it because of its price, but I decided it was worth the cost to keep my dogs safely confined in my backyard. The barriers were easy to install by positioning each near the base of the fence and pounding it into the ground. When the dogs start digging near one, they reach the tines of the barrier and give up the effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm I have a dog hotel and now have 20 of these at the bottom of chain link. I don't think any dog would be able to get past them and so far, no one has.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as Advertised I just installed the fence around my deck to critters from living under it. Easy to install and once painted should look ok too. Pest control company wanted close to 10x more for same product around the deck .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from metal panels for skunks They a fast and easy. They are also high dollar for what they are. If you are needing them and you don't have materials and have the cash they are great and ready to use. Game trappers showed me these. I have bought two sets with the last one discounted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They work! These work. They are rather expensive, but do the job. My neighbor’s dog behind me has dug into my backyard with my dogs before. When he gets a hole dug then my dogs want to join in. The panels are easily hammered into the ground. I would recommend doing it after a rain when the ground is softer. They keep my dogs in and the neighbor’s dog out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great concept but costly I love the concept and so far my dogs have not escaped where I’ve placed the barrier. They tried, and I had a HUGE hole, but as soon as I caught them and yelled, they stopped. I’m just disappointed that the product is so expensive. I have an acre of fenced in yard and to product the perimeter is going to cost a fortune.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver I have 4 dogs including 2 puppies weighing under 8 pounds. My next door neighbor has 2 pit bulls that have dug holes under my fence. Being concerned with my dogs’ safety, I had metal edging installed at the base of the fence. The neighbors’ dogs dug through immediately. I bought Dig Defence and it has been the answer to my prayers. Now I feel confident that my dogs are safe.

I just ordered the 15 pack of the XL animal barrier. I will be using this on a chain link fence, can I leave a portion of this above ground and can I zip tie it to the chain link 

Asked by: Nonameatall
Hello, thank you for your question. We suggest interlocking the unit with the bottom links of the chain link fence during installation to "tie" the fence to the ground, if you are unable, yes you can definitely zip tie or use metal clips to attach the unit to the fence. Thanks again for your question.

 My deck is a foot or so off the ground and groundhogs, raccoons, and possums like to camp out for shelter.  Which product is best to stop this?

Asked by: Fjcarn
Thank you for question. We suggest the XL model with the 15" depth and 1.5" spike spacing. During installation, the recommendation is to install at least half of the unit in the ground. If the gap is more than 8", using 2 units in those areas would be best, installing the 1st flush with the ground and bringing a 2nd over the top leaving the top lateral line flush with the bottom of the deck or fence.

Will this product work to keep groundhogs from digging under the walls of my garage/shed (which has a sandstone floor)?

Asked by: Katie01
Hello Katie, thank you for your question. We work with several pest control companies and this is the model they prefer for these situations. Be sure to view the installation videos, especially the tips video for best results.
