The Dog-G8 has announced the launch of a new dog gate to be used inside the home. The product can be used on the front door due to its concertina style, and also comes with extra sections that enable it to become a stair gate or room divider.

Business owners Julie and Peter Maxted said they decided to launch the product after looking for a "simple and cost effective way of resolving this issue of dogs running out, as well as keeping the dogs safe behind an open door."

While they looked at carious types of dog gates on the market, they said other products "just didn't deal with all the aspects of this problem enough."

The new safety gate launched by the business comes after "many months" of in-depth development, working alongside a Peterborough based engineering company.

Dog-G8 said: "The beauty of this new product, Dog-G8, is that if fixes really neatly to the front door of a house and it is very attractive in appearance. Dog-G8 will stop a dog running out every time the door is opened, by keeping the dog safety behind a physical barrier.

"It also protects the caller at the door, which is really important. They have designed Dog-G8 to be easily removable when not required, and fully modular should you wish to extend Dog-G8 wider."

It added: "The Dog-G8 company knows it has developed a 'game changer' regarding the safety of dogs and callers to any home that has Dog-G8 fitted. They are also very proud that Dog-G8 is a totally British made product."
