Cautionary note on pet gates. Some have slates that are wide enough for small puppies to walk thru. The first gate we got (Carlson, I think, for about $35-40 from Amazon) Cassie was able to walk thru the slates at 16 weeks. I rigged a temporary fix with wire woven thru bottom but could see she was working at escape. I have seen people weave sheets of plexiglass thru bottom also, but in researching problem found a Richell gate whose slates are spaced closer together. It was over $100 but since it is our main "lockup" gate on a bathroom, decided to get it and it works perfectly. We use the original on a room she isn't allowed in, but it isn't a critical barrier area so doesn't have to be escape proof. Some, but not all of these gates will give you how far apart the slates are set. The Richell was the smallest I could find and it was referenced on other sites with owners of small dogs having this problem with the most popular gates. I couldn't find the specs for slate spacing for the gates the link is posted to, but they may be listed some where. You can always try to modify if too wide but wanted to share this warning. Nothing like locking a puppy up and turning around to find they are following behind you with a happy look.

Ps. Just checked and Richell slates are 1 1/2 inches apart...others are often 2 and 2 1/2. The spec often don't inform you but lots of customer comments on amazon will give inf on spacing. Richell's are listed in their specs. $94 on Amazon, which is pricy as most walk thru gates are below $40.

I had a terrible time finding pet gates for areas of my house because the openings were too wide for any gates I could find. I also have stair railings that had to be blocked that the puppy could fall through to downstairs. We have a walkout lower level and the staircase down is open concept. I bought white vinyl lattice, got the home store to cut it in half for me and I got 2 perfect length puppy gates. I screwed feet on the bottom because I needed them to be free standing and they are really stable. When I have to move them they are very lightweight and easy to move. Bonus, super cheap.

The Pet Gate on WOOT is Carlson brand.

I'm glad you mentioned the lower level walkout, open concept staircase. We have the same set up in our house. We also have an upper level deck that I've been concerned about puppy proofing. The vinyl lattice is a great idea and won't look terribly unattractive.

Yup. We had to put plexiglas on several walk-through gates... Not sure the brand anymore) because Pixel was able to just walk through them.

We had to return our first gate that we bought because without extensions, there was too much room on the sides to keep puppy in (in addition to the actual slats being too wide), and with extensions it was much too small. The one we got is a better fit and the slats are spaced closer, though I'm not certain puppy won't be able to get through. We may just cover them with plexiglass or chicken wire until he's too big to squeeze through. Hadn't even thought about our lofted living room, but we will probably chicken wire that too for the time being.

Puppies grow fast so it probably won't be too long that you'll need to block his way. Rexy could go through when he came home at almost 11 weeks right before Thanksgiving but hasn't really been able to go through must of this month. He is 6 months old and weighs 8.6 lbs.

Upon recommendation from our breeder we use iris plastic ex pen as gates and a pen. They are easy to transform and resize. We have 3 white pens (so 12 panels). One for paper, another that works as a gate or pen extension and another to cut the basement into a sizable all-weather play area. He cannot fit through and since they connect together he cannot seek past. Today he actually got up one step towards the second floor so we just shifted the panels and no more access to the stairs. I love these.
