Default Well, it was nice while it lasted

This is my new gate

This is Didgie going over my new gate

I kinda hate her

Oh well, I should have figured if any of them would it would be her. Not extraordinarily high for a dog but pretty darn high for a puppy I think.

And I'm honestly just not used to dogs that do that. Traveler has immense respect for gates and would never do that. Didgie thinks everything is made to be conquered.

Attitude. She has it.

Hah. I love Trav's face. "I'm the good one, in case you were wondering."

You can probably train her to respect the gate - Murphy is a gate hopper and through the strategic use of really high gates and treats he will usually stay on the proper side. Not if I'm getting dog food ready or if he's home alone though. (Not that I've worked on either of those scenarios.)

Now see, I just threw the gate at Traveler the first couple times he thought about it Didgie though would like that so it's not an option.

At this point, I'm hoping she won't do it if I'm not on the side she's not on. I left food cooling where she could see it and left the house with her locked out of the Kitchen using that gate. She didn't jump it until I got home and didn't come see her.

But, I'm assuming nothing

Holy crap, that's a pretty high gate, LOL. Oh Didgie.

Um, I'm curios to know why you decided to teach Traveler not to jump by throwing the gate at him? It just seems a tad harsh when there are nicer ways to teach it.

They are your dogs, I'm just curious.

That picture is too funny!

I trained Savvy to stay in a fairly low expen by giving him a consequence every time he jumped out and making staying in very rewarding. In the expen, I had stuffed Kongs, other chewy thing and toys. When he jumped out, he immediately got put into a small (but big enough) crate with nothing fun in it at all for awhile. Then back into the fun expen. It took a little while and a lot of consistency...the first week or so was annoying to extinguish the jumping but it worked!

What a sassy set of faces! And poor Traveler, being so good.

Gavroche will jump anything. I've seen him jump in excess of 5 feet before. Gates are no match for him.

Logan could jump most gates, he is a fairly decent jumper, but it really would never cross his mind to do so lol.

Because it worked Honestly, it was a split decision when he looked up at a gate and got ready to jump, I kicked it, it went flying, he backed up really fast and never tried to jump a gate.

There are a million ways to teach it nicer but, this worked, he doesn't jump gates but neither is he afraid of them (as you can see with him standing right by the gate).

If I had to do it again I probably would do it the same way because extinguishing behaviors that fast is how an aversive is supposed to work. Didgie? Not so much. She would think it was time to kill the gate.

lol, yeah I didn't find that gate to be too affective for "some" dogs either. Enda respects it, but well, Jinjo has bowled it over right off the wall...twice. Then I later found out, he also shockingly fits through the "little door" that's on ours that we thought might be nice for Noods *face-palm* it was supposed to keep him and her separated.

Hahahaha, love Didg-a-tude collage.
