Orion has done it again. She had stinky bear out and was throwing him around then chasing and pouncing on him. Well, of course that is gonna peak Vegas's interest and he's gonna grab onto Stinky's leg and a tug game will happen. Since Orion's teddy bear is a high quality bear (not!!) stinky won't last past a couple of bulldog tugs. So, I took it from her and I put it into her kennel and shut and locked the door. The little stinker started pawing at her kennel and she unlatched it! SHE UNLATCHED IT! And she pulled stinky back out. So, Vegas springs her from one of her kennels and she can spring Stinky out of the other.
You know one night in the middle of the night I heard (nearby) noises. So I got up to investigate- I figured it was one of the doggies but not sure what was going on. And there is Tidus, in the kitchen, pushing around a pan lid that the babies where playing with. So I figured- okay, I must not have latched the crate properly. Put him back to bed, and then- I hear these loud noises like someone is banging on the wall, and next I hear the pitter-patter of Tidus's feet running through the house. Needless to say- he figured out how to open the crate!!!! So I had to switch him with his sis who has a different latch. Who knows how long this will take for him to figure it out.
I tried to video tape him breaking out the next day, but my camera died right before the actual bust out.
I'm sure I have said it before but Mr.Beefy will "breakout" of his crate. The second day he was here I crated him to go to the store and came back to find him by the door.He has pulled the front off of the crate and gotten thru it. How this 70lb clumsy boy squeezed thru there i dont know but he has done it everytime NO FAIL and it sounds like someone is slamming the walls trying to break them down because he grips the wire with his teeth and pulls until he can get out. So Mr. Beefy does not get crated.
Orion's other kennel had a knob ontop that you pull upward to lift the pin. Vegas grabs the knob in his mouth and uses his teeth to slide it upwards. Needless to say we thought my mom in law wasn't latching the crate completely UNTIL I noticed the teeth marks on the knob.
Its amazing how smart they... very good problem solvers, i think that when we think they are being lazy maybe they are just analyzing the situation lol
Wow that is amazing! Cant show them anything can you? lol. Smart pups!
I agree. Maybe that's why they like to 'watch' you do everything ... so they can learn how to do it after!
how crazy i cant wait to see a video of them escaping!!!! yes when things get quiet in this house that means double trouble always having to check on them i think we check on th fur kids more than the skins lol
I don't have video of Orion springing her stinky bear but I do have video of Vegas "attempting" to spring Orion in her other kennel.......
After I caught this on video, we changed out the style of kennel.
