How high can Havanese jump?

Hi, we are considering gating our kitchen to provide Nikey (9 weeks old) a larger space to spend the day while we are out. We are thinking of getting standard baby gates with a mesh restraint rather than bars to avoid him sticking his neck through them. Our concern is that he may jump over the gate. Do you know how high can Havanese jump?

Thanks for your help

Dexter can jump pretty high and what he can't jump over, he will climb over once he gets a good start on the climb. It was a baby gate that was a little taller that I actually watched him.

When Dexter was a puppy, we ended up taking the taking down the kitchen/living room divider because Dexter had jump/climbed over it and I did not want him to hurt himself ....and this was before he was 6 months old. This was my experience, hopefully you will find something that will work for you.

I have a HIGH jumper, Tillie was easily clearing regular baby gates and x-pens at 4 months old ... not sure how high she can jump as I don't encourage her to jump, but my guess is maybe 3 feet or so ... if she REALLY wanted something!! some havs aren't natural jumpers and some are...

Our 2 can jump vertically very high,but they tend not to take a run at things and then jump over,it is more like they are pogoing!We have a baby stair gate between our kitchen and breakfast room,which works very well,there is nothing that they can get a purchase on to be able to climb over.This pic was taken about 18 months ago.

My 3 are like Clare's...they can jump really high straight up but haven't figured out how to actually jump "over" things yet and hopefully never will lol 'cause I'm sure they could go over the gates if they really wanted to

If its plastic mesh, you won't have to worry about jumping! He will chew his way out in a few minutes!

As far as Beau is concerned, he can jump as high as he needs to jump in order to get wherever he wants to be -- or out of wherever I want to keep him!!

Until Inky, regular baby gates worked at our place. Inky could jump over or on anything. One of her sons can too ( the other is a vertical jumper), I guess it's just up to the individual dog.

Thank you for your comments. Our baby doors are ordered and we'll see how it goes. Hopefully by the time Nikey can jump over them we'll have the potty routine figured out and we can give him more freedom to roam the house.

Mine jumped out of his expen by 4 months. He is now 8 months and this weekend he actually tried to JUMP onto the kithen counter. I couldn't believe how close he got!! I purchased 2 ex-pens which are useless to me. It has to be a fully enclosed kennel for Kobe!!
