30 Cheap & Inexpensive Indoor Dog Fence Ideas

Do you struggle to keep your dog out of the living room, kitchen, or even your furniture?

Maybe they’re prone to making a huge mess while digging through the trash bin.

As much as we love our furry friends, they can be quite a handful and tend to love going where they’re not supposed to.

The last thing you want waking you up in the wee hours of the night is a loud boom from your kitchen or living room, only to find your dog knocked over something.

An indoor dog fence is an invisible barrier that keeps your home clutter-free unlike having several pet gates that block your dog from entering restricted spots.
