Dog eared fences are the staple of the fencing industry. They’re easy to install, economical, and with proper maintenance they can last for years. The dog ear style of wood fencing can be constructed with little to no spaces between the pickets as shown below or with a space of your choice. There will, however, be spaces in your fence due to the nature of wood fencing. If you want true privacy fencing, please look into Canyon Winds, Estates, or Trex Composite Fencing.
