dog gates

Anyone have any ideas on a good secure dog gate. I was over to my daughters house to let her Basset Hound and Dachshund out for relief , while they were away. When I came in the house they almost knocked over the baby gate in the kitchen ,trying to greet me. When I left I put it back the way it was supposed to be . My daughter just phoned and said that when they got home, the dogs had escaped and got into mischief. I told her that they probably just figured out how to knock it down,from their experience with me. Seems like a typical baby gate is not strong enough for a 6o pound Basset. Any ideas.?

I used a baby gate to keep my staffordshire terriers where I wanted them for a long time. It was a plastic gate from Target, Had an adjustment on it so it would fit several doorways. The trick was putting it on the correct side of the doorframe. You have to put it against the part of the frame where the door closes. That way if the dogs push against it, the are also pushing against the door frame. Does that make sense? I don't think I did a very good job of describing what I mean...

I have this one and I love it. I bought it online, they did not have it in the store. It is very sturdy and it fit nicely across an area in my home that was wider then a doorway and a regular gate would not work. It is adjustable. take a look!

We have something similar to this (although not that exact model) going into the dogroom for when we need to keep some separated:

Be sure to get the kind that has a plastic "cup" that screws to the door jamb that the feet to the tension screws go into. The ones that only stay with tension don't stay in place securely enough to be 100% reliable.

the problem with her entrance is that there are no door frames. It's the entrance to the kitchen. It's only three feet wide, but will definitely need something better than the one they have. Thanks.

I looked but couldn't find a link to the exact one we have. This place has a good selection. They call the different mounting systems "pressure mount" and "hardware mount". From experience, we prefer the hardware mount even though it requires a few small holes. The pressure mount ones can't hold enough pressure permanently at the top since the opening for the door makes it into a big U shape. We had one that worked just okay, but I got tired of putting it back in place as it slid around.

Ours came with several different width panels that you could mix and match to work out to anything in the size range it covered.

Yeah I like the hardware mount idea too. I see the one that might be right for her. Thanks again Tom. I might have to be the handyman now. LOL

Here's the one we use. It's very sturdy, and there are extensions that make it fit a wide variety of openings. It also has several mounting options. It's a powder coated metal gate (comes in black, white and buff, I believe) so would probably hold up better with big/heavy dogs. There's also a tall version, but that's probably not an issue with Bassets.
