that she could climb the baby gate and escape. She has done it twice now and we couldn't figure out how she was doing it but my husband caught her yesterday. Luckily she hasn't destroyed anything and peed only on her pads in the kitchen and living room. We aren't using the gate anymore because we don't want her getting a paw stuck in it and getting hurt so today she has run of the living room, dining room and kitchen. Should be intersting.
I have a springer spaniel who is 14 weeks old. I had the same problem with the baby gates, but now i just lean the baby gates across the hallway opening, and he's afraid to touch them, because if he does they fall on him. Its worked like a miracle for the past few weeks now, and i hope it keeps working!!!!! Maybe this could work for you too :)
When Syd was two months old, she would climb or jump over the baby gate. When i took her to my moms, I would put her in the fenced in paddle tennis court with my other dog to play and she would climb that too and escape. I took her to the dog park at four months and i left her with a friend in there while i grabbed something from my car.She thought I was leaving her, and when i looked over to check on her, she was climbing the dog park fence which is over 6ft tall, she was halfway up.It was pretty funny and everyone was staring at her shocked.
I have a rottweiler who will be 5 years old this month. When he was a puppy he figured every little thing out like hitting the latch on the door to go outside when he wanted to go (our yard is fenced in). These dogs are amazing and sometimes smarter than you think :)
