    How big are your dogs, how big an area, and how high a fence do you think you need? We used 6 foot high chain link to make a 12x12 enclosure for our Belgian Malinois and she she climbed it with no problem. Had to put a roof on it. You can use 4x4 pressure treated lumber as posts and staple hardware cloth/wire fencing to it, which would be pretty easy to do. The worst part is digging the post holes. The other thing to worry about is if they try to dig underneath it. You can use chainlink to make an enclosure that will not require sinking posts, but it will be more expensive and chain link is a little harder to assemble. You can do the same with with wood. Make frames that will rest on the ground that you staple the hardware cloth/wire fencing to and maybe just sink posts as the corners for stability. You can get some other ideas here:

      I have a large pit/lab mix but she doesn’t try to get out of the fenced area we have (4 feet high) the back area of our yard is fenced with wood (6 feet high) is like to enclose the full length which is about 75 feet long with the back wood fence as part of fence area... not sure if this is making sense. I don’t want her or other small dog we have enclosed in a small 12x12 area. I want to make a fence maybe 12 wide with the whole length of the other fence.

      Actually a good idea...what exactly is used as post? And to attach the pallets?

    Paint it a dark brown and it looks much better.

    Look at this You Tube. Not the prettiest, but probably the easiest to build.

    How a bought metal stakes driven into ground, I then used cable ties, or if wooden stakes you could just use wood screws, :)
