It contains 1" x 1" mesh holes with PVC-coating to block small dogs from chewing their way out of the fence line; but the fence mesh can be easily bendable if the dog jumps on the fence enough times. This virtually invisible dog fence is a winner for dogs that want to play outside; may dig or chew; but not challenge the over all strength of the fence.
