When we got Densil nearly a year ago, we were told that he could jump ordinary baby gates, so we got a savic dog gate which is a lot taller. We haven't used it much, just to keep him in the kitchen area whilst I was hoovering hall/stairs and vice versa. After a while he didn't bother about hoover so we haven't used the gate much, just sometimes when we had a delivery at the door, as the gate is at the end of the hallway facing the front door.

The other day Densil decided he was going to start attacking the hoover again so I put him in the kitchen and shut the gate. Next thing I know he is in the hall with me - he had got over the gate, but I didn't see how. So we shut him in again and my husband was with him this time. He said he just leapt in the air and jumped over it like a race horse over a hurdle. I was amazed. We could make the gate even higher, but this would make a trip hazard for us as we would have to step over the bottom bar. I'm so glad I discovered he could do this before I used it to keep him in whilst I opened the front door, otherwise he would have been gone, lol. raised eyebrows

I've seen and heard about staffys being good jumpers , Tommy did clear a child safety gate the other week but generally for our 2 that sort of jumping is too much hard work and they know they won't get a treat for their efforts Smile

When someone visits Cassie runs around in circles and leaps over the couch without touching the back of it, it just proves if they want something nothing will stop them lol, i must admit i do worry about Cassie's spindley legs snapping on landing because they are so thin lol

I have seen a Staffy jump over a 6 foot high garden fence, a gate would be no problem Laughing

As you say best you found this out now before anything drastic happens.

Here's my "genius" solution to that problem.

rolling on the floor

Two baby gates - one as normal, the other on top of it upside down.

I have the extra tall dog gate, my problem is they can rip it down rather then try to jump it, so we do have to watch them

I've been considering putting in an iron gate, the type you see outside in gardens.
