The outdoor run is in need of being bigger, and I want to make it daytime critter proof after my husband was welcomed by 2 dobermans the other early morning. Thanks goodness my ladies were still locked up. My questions are... I can get a roll of welded wire at work for $99, plus my discount off that price. It will have 2 x 4 squares and is 5 feet tall by 100 ft roll. Then I will use the hardware cloth 3' wide, and go up a foot, and have the other two feet as the apron. OR I can get chain link fencing at Lowe's 6' x 50' for $87. But would need 2 rolls. Do you think welded wire is an okay fencing to keep daytime predators out? I can buy tensile wire to use at the thread to sew the 2 types of fencing together. I have looked at dog kennels on craiglist but the way we have the outdoor run it is not perfectly square. It is in an L shape...Not sure how that would work. Any other suggestions would be helpful. I will post the outdoor run we have now. Nothing like the gorgeous ones I see on here, but it was what we could afford at the time.... Any input would be much appreciated. Want to do it right, and make it look nicer!
