Well our new puppy learned how to climb the gate... now what?!

We tried leaving her alone without the gate for a short period of time but she still gets into stuff. So I need a new gate without holes in it that she cant stick her paws through to climb. Suggestions?

  • You should be crate training her

  • If you don't have a crate, you can use a small room, such as a laundry room.

  • We have never crate trained our dogs and they have always turned out to be amazing dogs. But then again our other dogs never learned how to climb the gate lol

  • crate is always a great option. Sometimes people think it is mean, but it is actually like a den to dogs. My German Shepherd is in hers right now, door wide open. She goes in there all th time on her own. When we first got her we id not know she was crate trained and we would wake up or come home to something chewed, we left her in the bathroom and she destroyed tooth bruses and tooth paste. She hasnt chewed a thing in the 4 months that we have had her crate. Had her since Sept.

  • Crate train. This also gives your dog a place to be when he doesn't want to be bothered
