Made from recycled composite resin, this folding pet gate looks good as well as doing the job. It is easy to put up, as it is freestanding, is held in place by its own weight and will fit a variety of openings. It is weatherproof so can be used outside as well as inside.

I don’t know how well it would hold up to a determined escapologist, but if all you need is a barrier to keep your dog in or out of a room then this would do the job. It comes in dark red, earth brown or evergreen and is available in two heights.

Gate costs from $199 from Fetch Dog
