LOL, I was referring to Krandall's comment about it not being so much about jumping but climbing out that she was concerned about.

Thankfully, Isabella can jump through hoops over three feet high . . .but has never once tried to scale an expen. Either she finds the height intimidating or knows I wouldn't be too happy if she did. Raider however, just may be a different story. Something tells me I may have met my match

I really think very few of them actually jump. I think most learn to climb.

With Kodi, I think it's partly that he respects it, and partly that he feels safe in his ex-pen. He has no real reason to try to leave.

I would imagine Isabella does too. For several months before we took it down, we left the door open. She could be trusted in the house but returned to her expen on her own while we were away. When she began preferring her soft crate to sleep in, she uses that now and we removed the pen for a couple of months before getting Raider so it would have time to "reset" for the new puppy.

I left for the grocery store this evening and placed Raider in the expen before leaving. When I returned home, I peaked through the window to see her sitting next to the closed expen door "guarding it" until my return.
