No, Jayden has been jumping the baby gates since we got her at 8 weeks, we saw the agility potential that early! lol. You see what I mean? I have thought a long time about this and I am running out of ideas. You guys are helping though I really do appreciate it alot!
I know it sounds tacky but 2 baby gates?? I had to do that with one of my Boxers, Or try and build a gate on hinges that you can lock that is pretty high? I dunno I'm trying to help here don't know how well i'm doing!
I think that would work but for how long? I don't know if my fiancee wants that, he is annoyed because he is usually the one that has to go find her every time she bolts. (I have to stay with the kids) He is usually fine about most things with the dogs but this is turning into an everyday thing. I can't blame him really, that is why I am asking because we are at our wits end trying to come up with ideas.
It worked for me for a long time, All I did was place one on top of the other about 5-6 inches apart so that its a little higher. But you gotta make sure its a pretty decent one cause if she relizes that she can push it and knock it out of place than its over. I persoanlly would go with the a gate that is hinged to the wall, door ect.. That way you wouldn't have to always climb over a baby gate, just unlock it and be on you way. My brother in law did this with his puppy APBT, and it worked very well. If you or your hubby are crafty enough you can always make one out of latice (sp?)work or a piece of nice wood and paint/designe it however you want. Edit: If you would like i can give you some advise on how to make one. I'm pretty good at comming up with ideas and things like that. I'm good with my hands and pretty damn crafty :D
my husband gets angry too cause he is the one who has to deal with it also. thunder took off yesterday and he was so mad at our son. its not entirely my sons fault though. he is only nine and thunder weighs about 70 lbs. i am really sorry summer. i don't know what else to suggest. try joining a border collie discussion forum and seek help there. :((
i have to put baby gates up to 6 feet tall to keep my bc contained. then i can't get in the kitchen. if you do have to rehome, maybe a vet may be a place to start to look, you can require that you do a home visit to the place and meet people more than once, get a good feel for them, meet all family members, etc. where i live (which isn't washington) there is a puppy rescue that has a website where you can post "adopt by owner" ads. i'll keep thinking!
well summergirl21. . . i had just thought about this how about you board her until you guys can put a fence up?!?!?! because before we moved where we are now we boarded my boxer baby until we got this place. . .i mean its not really fun havin to go visit your baby girl but its for the best intrest of the dog so it does not get hit by a car. . . just something i remembered doing with my boxer puppy....hope it helps you. . . .buh byezz n good luck!!
I will look around but I am not sure if there are any that I can afford. My vet, I know, Charges about 20 dollars a day, and given we are not moving for a 3-4 weeks, that would be somewhere around 500 dollars. Which I would do in an instant if I had that money available. I will see what I can find.
