My sister asked me to puppy sit her pug today while she ran some errands. She was expecting a repairman to come to her place to fix her kitchen sink and she didn’t want the puppy bothering the repairman. I said sure, bring the pup on over and set up the baby gates to keep the puppy in the kitchen, with my two dogs, thinking that they would play happily together. Well, that pug puppy decided he was not willing to stay in the kitchen and jumped over the baby gate! I have had dogs much larger than that pug for over thirty years and never once have any of them even thought about jumping over the baby gate!
I put the puppy back in the kitchen and told him to stay there. Within seconds, back over the gate again! At that point I just put him outside in the back yard to let him run around. The yard is fenced in and I was confident that since the fence is six feet tall that he would not be able to jump over that!
