Corrugated Metal Fencing for Dogs: How To Keep Them Safe [VIDEO]

Did you know that 65.1 million households in the U.S. own a dog? That’s over half of the households in the country! Clearly, our furry friends are cherished members of the family. Yet, while training can teach them where to roam, the truth is that pups love to get in a good run. For this reason, many homeowners desire a fenced yard, not just for containment but also to ward off unwanted guests. 

But more than just households may wish to install a fence to keep dogs safe. Pet clinics and doggy daycares also need containment systems to keep dogs from getting into mischief or, even worse, getting injured.

While opting for chain link fencing is a common solution, corrugated metal fencing is becoming increasingly popular. Read on to learn why.

Benefits of Corrugated Metal Fencing for Dogs

If you’re unfamiliar with corrugated metal fencing, we’re happy to tell you all about it. In fact, BarrierBoss has manufactured an unparalleled corrugated metal fencing product that can take your property to new levels. Steel fencing offers so many advantages, from durability to security, to a great look, and so much more.

Consider the following benefits:


Corrugated metal fencing is well known for its exceptional strength. In fact, it can last 40 years or more! That’s why at BarrierBoss, we offer a 40-year warranty on our metal fencing products. Our steel panels are resistant to volatile weather conditions including hail, rain, and wind.

Yes,  this means that our fencing solution from BarrierBoss is virtually resilient against the elements. This longevity guarantees security for your pets and saves you money over time, preventing the need to replace fencing every ten years or more.

Security and Containment 

Unlike chain-link fencing that may leave gaps at the bottom, corrugated metal fences offer enhanced pet security to keep them safe. With chain-link fences, small pups can sneak through gaps, posing risks. 

So, what about electric dog fences? While these fences are a popular option, the fact is that they are only about 70% effective. And they’re 0% effective if you forget to put the collar on your dog. As we’re pet lovers, too, we want to ensure your family pet stays safe. That’s why we recommend skipping the expensive electric fence option that creates a risk for your dog to get away and investing in corrugated metal fencing instead.

Privacy vs. Visibility

Unlike chain-link or electric dog fences that prioritize visibility through the fencing (if there is even a physical fence to begin with), BarrierBoss corrugated metal fences look great and are not the eye-sore that you might suspect. 

With 4' sheets, you can easily peep over the fence line, providing an excellent balance of security and privacy. That said, if privacy is the name of the game, we do have 6' or 8' sheets available. This flexibility lets you balance visibility and privacy, all with an amazing-looking fence that increases your property’s value.

Style and Aesthetics

Corrugated metal fencing offers a super sleek appearance that is highly sought after by those who love the modern aesthetic. The ridges and grooves of the paneling create a modern touch that homeowners and business owners appreciate. 

Plus, the contemporary color palette, including options like black and galvalume, complements nature while aligning with the modern look many desire. Or, you can choose to paint your panels with PVDF coatings—we offer up to 26 colors to choose from.

DIY Corrugated Metal Fencing for Dogs

This lightweight, user-friendly solution is perfect for those seeking simplicity in installation. Corrugated metal is strong and secure and offers a hassle-free DIY experience for dog owners who want to keep their pets safe.

Let’s start with the list of supplies that you’ll need for an easy installation process:

  • Corrugated Metal Panels (desired height and color)
  • Galvanized Steel Posts (remember, you need at least one to two more posts than you do panels)
  • Post Caps (make sure you have the same number of post caps as you do posts)
  • Concrete Mix
  • Gravel
  • Wood Blocks
  • Level
  • Drill
  • Screws
  • Post Hole Digger
  • Circular Saw
  • Measuring Tape

A typical residential corrugated metal fence installation might take anywhere from one to three days. However, the exact timing can really vary based on the size of the project, the linear feet of fencing, and the complexity of the design. 

Steps to Install a Corrugated Metal Fence 

Corrugated metal might be the perfect choice if you want a simple, lightweight fence solution. Here’s a quick overview of the steps to take to create an enclosure that not only keeps those pets safe and secure, but looks awesome, too.

  • Prepare the Area: Clear the area of debris and ensure it's level. Mark the desired fence line using a chalked snap line.
  • Dig Post Holes: Use a post hole digger to create holes for the galvanized steel posts. As a rule of thumb, dig the holes to a depth of one-third to one-half of the height of the post. So, if you have a six-foot post, your hole should be two to three feet in depth.
  • Insert Posts: Place posts in the holes and fill them with concrete mix. Ensure posts are level and let the concrete set. This should take one to two days.
  • Attach Wood Blocks: Attach wood blocks to posts for attaching corrugated metal panels.
  • Measure and Cut Panels: Measure the distance between posts and use a circular saw to cut corrugated metal panels to size. 
  • Secure Panels: Attach panels to wood blocks using screws. Ensure they are evenly spaced and level.
  • Finish the Fence: Attach post caps for a polished look—backfill holes with gravel for stability.
  • Inspect and Test: Check for any loose screws or uneven panels. Test the fence's sturdiness. Contact your local municipality for a certificate of completion, if required.

Is it easy to install a corrugated metal fence?
