Someone here posted a YouTube video of their very young puppy scaling an ex-pen in just a matter of minutes. Who was that? It was frightening and amazing to see!

If you have to put construction fencing up in your kitchen... it is time for some hardcore behavior modification <BG> Some of those dogs are amazing and too intelligent. No one should own a jack russell that hasn't had years of dog training!

Isabelle is an escape artist and she finds a way-she breaks out of crates- little bodies can fit thru metal crates if they push long enough, thru gates- she will push under them until the lift up or thru the wood sides, etc. I should youtube her fitting in between the gate openings for you guys- we just close the dog door when I leave now. Thank goodness she isn't destructive. As long as you don't cage her, she is fine. She always just runs to me. But she has never chewed anything other than qtips and cotton balls. So she has full run everywhere- even from a young age.

Dora is very cute and trained appropriately to being Belle's sister. We have an easement where we walk thru my neighbor's side of the house, through their gates and to ours. Dora will run to our gate and even if we are leaving she will stop there. I have to give her a command it is okay. She is so used to me yelling at Belle that she is scared of that zone!

When we first got Belle, the area we tried to contain her in was our apartment kitchen. She was just over one pound and we knew there was no way she knocked over the baby gate- my husband swore I was not putting it up right and then we put her in there and watched from the hallway. She just wasn't going to let a baby gate seperate her from us. She was head butting it!

Amanda...they just hate being alone! Dogs are pack animals and if they are left to themselves will do (as you saw) most anything to get free.
We started out with one dog, but quickly caught on (as we both worked) that our dog needed companionship. So we got another one and the destructive behavior stopped..

Marley the escape artist! LOL Classic video!

I bet the only reason why Gucci never managed to escape the xpen was because it was the plastic kind. She did manage to injure herself pretty badly trying to get out of the crate.

I did everything the books said, start with short intervals, sit right there, etc. But when I had worked up to leaving her alone and I went upstairs for 5 minutes, she somehow CUT her ear?!?! Throwing herself against the crate...Blood...EVERYWHERE. It looked like a murder scene and I felt like the WORST doggie mom of the year. Needless to say, I was too traumatized from the crate, so I managed to train her w/o it. *sigh*

Like Belle, she does better w/ full run of the house, she's never destroyed anything, and she'll even wait to go potty til' I get home, or every now and then use the pad, but I worry far less about her if she's got her freedom. she does NOT like confinement...or to be away from me.

Kara, Kubrick also never escaped the expen and I think it was because it was the plastic type (he couldn't hold onto anything). Later we used a gate to block off a small area and the gate was just vertical white bars (very slippery to boot) so Kubrick couldn't get out no matter how hard he tried. And he did try.
