Default The Puppy Gate is now useless.

I put the puppy gate up to keep Rambo in the kitchen while I was gone to work. My fiance usually stays with him during the day if she is available. She went into the bedroom to sleep for a while because she works 3rd shift at the hospital (She's an RN). Anyway, she said she heard his collar jingling, so she opened the door, and there he was. He either jumped or climbed over the puppy gate. She said the gate was still standing. My boy is growing up so fast!!!

I have small dogs but for some of them I have had to put up two baby gates, one on top of the other to keep them from climbing over.

Puppy gates are not much of an obstacle LOL.

I remember when MacKenzie first climbed over the baby gate... He was maybe 3 or 4 months old.

I'd been using it to fence off the carpeted area while he was still being pottie trained. The rest of the place was either tile or hardwood.

I put him behind the gate in the bedroom while I cleaned up a mess in the kitchen. Usually the gate was used the other way around!

He came right over that gate and of course had his nose in the mess straight away! I put him back behind the gate and the little brat did it again.

I used the gate after that as a 'lid' for the baby playpen he travelled in in the RV, it was of no use as a 'baby gate'.

We did use a baby gate again when he was an adult. My SO at the time refused to allow the dog in the bedroom. MacKenzie respected the gate except during a thunderstorm!

That's funny. I think we are getting to where we trust Rambo more in the house, so I guess it was just a matter of time. He seems to be doing really well with pottying. He hasn't had an accident in almost a month it seems. I think we're going to try letting him sleep at night without the use of his crate too.

Yup, sounds about right. We still use the gates to keep Mya out of the bedroom when we're not home (she's incotinent, and sometimes the meds slip a little so she leaks.) On occasion we've come home to find Mya on the OTHER side of the gates wagging her tail at us. Yup... that plan worked wonders.
