Puppy Proofing Your Home - Picket Spaces on Railings

When our little Charlie came home, we realized that we had overlooked puppy proofing details in and around railing pickets and staircases. With our Charlie having weighed in at 4 pounds when we got him, we had not realized that he could fit between the pickets of our railings on the second floor. In an effort to aesthetically and economically address the spaces between the pickets we visited our local dollar store and found rolls of black gardening mesh. We wove the mesh in and out of the iron pickets to provide a barrier so Charlie could not fit between the pickets. It blended nicely with the black iron pickets and was aesthetically discreet. We finished ends with black zip ties tied to last picket.
