Dog wants to visit his friend next door, so man builds a fence window for them


It’s no fun staring at a fence all day.

We can come and go as we please, but for dogs, socializing might prove to be a bit more difficult, especially when they are surrounded by dull fences and blocked off from the rest of the world. After seeing his dogs become excited about a new friend, one crafty pet owner found the perfect solution.

Reddit user ryanispiper noticed his three dogs had become fast friends with the dog next door. The group would often play chase along the fence, and curiously peer at one another through the thin gaps in his fence.

He felt they should be able to see each other, so he built them a customized fence window.


“The dogs really do enjoy it,” he said. “They go out each morning and visit with each other if they are all out together. They still chase each other along the fence line, but I think they are happier actually seeing who they are chasing. They give each other some puppy love and sometimes just stare or bark at each other a bit.”

Many other dog owners have installed dog windows in their fences, and added their own creative touches to them as well.


Tall or short, all pups deserve a nice view.


Some dogs like to meet new people and animals on the sidewalk.


Others like to catch up on the neighborhood gossip with a friend.


The windows are also great for sneaking friends in. But you didn’t hear that from us…


And sometimes, friendly neighbors make dog windows in their fences for their furry neighbors to say hello.


Dogs are curious and friendly, so having a window of their own where they can observe the outdoors and receive visits is just what they need. After all, we couldn’t imagine our own homes without windows!
