walk-through gate

Does anyone know of a walk-through gate, tension or bolt-on, that I can buy to keep my 4 lb puppy contained in a hallway, etc? The gate that I have has vertical bars that are spaced a little too far apart and my puppy can try to squeeze her head between the bars. Another gate I tried has horizontal bars that allowed my puppy to climb on. I searched Chewy and Amazon, but could not find the right sturdy and safe gate. My house is not large enough for an ex-pen. I need to block off a space where my pup's large potty pad and a bed, etc. will fit. Anyone?

We use a little chicken wire until they are big enough not to fit through the vertical bars. It doesn't take long..

I use an extra tall - extra wide baby gate to block off my hallway for Molly. It is not a walk through gate but is pressure mounted and easy to put up and down.

We are City people. How do you attach/secure chicken wire to the gate?

We use baby gates too. You can get ones that you can open a door and walk through.

To attach chicken wire, you could probably use something like zip ties?

We had the same problem with ALL the walk-through gates when Pixel was a puppy. We cut plexiglass sheets the right size for each section, then drilled holes in the corners and zip-tied them to the gates. It was some work, but it was absolutely puppy proof and looked nice.

There are a number of threads here re finding a walk thru gate that works for little guys. The one that I found works, and mentioned by others is the dreambaby/bindaboo gate...sold under both names but cheaper as the dreambaby (for babies version..identical to the dog version that sells as bindaboo. The slates are close enough to prevent escapes, it is walk thru on either side. Note reviews talking about holding tiny dogs in!!

The manufacturer said slates are 2.25 wide. It looks like newer models are on amazon now, but my version is the chelsa ..
