We have a ten week old boxer puppy who seems to be quite the escape artist. Part of the time my husband is home during the week and part of the time he is gone out of town working. I am gone every day to work. My son usually gets home around 3:15 from school. So....here's my trouble. When we're all gone during the day I have attempted to keep Coco contained in the kitchen. I bought gates, she jumps them. I even tried doubling up the gates one on top of the other, she still somehow knocks them down and gets over them. I tried putting cardboard and plywood over them thinking she was climbing with her little toes, nope...peeked through the window and watched her jump right up on top and climb over. She doesn't tear too much up when she gets out but does some and knocks things off the tables and just gets into things she isn't supposed to. She doesn't mess on the floor, only uses newspaper when she has to go while inside. Today I tried backing the kitchen chairs up to the gates thinking she wouldn't attempt to jump with the visual higher than the gate on the other side. Well.....my son just called, she still somehow got out and was making herself at home up in our room on the bed. She threw the pillows off the bed and decided to read all our magazines up there. Son said they were scattered everywhere. I don't know what else to do with her. I really don't want her having the whole house to herself when we're not there and I don't feel right shutting her in that kennal all day while we're gone and then all night while she sleeps. At night is fine but not all day too. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
