There is no gate at the moment. Going to have the 1x1 cedar posts horizontal with narrow slits on the frame made by the 1x4 frame I think. Just trying to figure out how to frame it out for the cleanest look. 

Will be replacing the baby gate to keep my dogs from eating the neighbors.

They need to be very snug. No slack at all.

Even then, you may find it racks.

Even if it doesn't immediately rack, it probably will over time. 

Like Steve suggested originally, I'd recommend a diagonal or x-brace for stiffness.  Either that or gusset the corners significantly.

Pretty much done with everything but staining, as it is too cold.  Kasia did not like the box brace on the back so I have shorter corner braces on each corner.  Hoping the 13 1.5x1.5 cross bars and the 4 14”ish 1.5x1.5 corner brace boards will be enough to keep it square.
