The back of the run is going to be solid. The front & side will be wire but it's going to be roughly 7-8ft. tall in the front. I have 6 ft. chain link but I'd rather have the fencing run from top to bottom. I can only find 16 guage wire and figured I can run it in two rows. I have four dogs and I'm sure that at least one of them will be jumping up on the wire. I want it to hold and not get up bent up.
