    Default Stella is starting a BAD habit

    With 3 bulldogs, and a house that we are renovating, we decided to make the kitchen a dog free zone. We keep our bedroom door shut during the day. Stella has started HURLING herself at the bedroom door, and scratching on it if we are in the kitchen ( we have a hall from bedroom to bathroom to kitchen). She can see us through the baby gate when we are in the kitchen, it does not look like a separation anxiety thing to me at all. She just wants what she wants when she wants it. The door is getting scratched... Any suggestions?

    Which door is she scratching ... the closed bedroom one, or the one that leads into the kitchen. If it's the kitchen one then I would say leave it open and just use the baby gate.

    It's the bedroom door she is obsessed with.

    I guess I could try a baby gate on the bedroom door... She could at least see through it.

    Baby gate sounds like a good idea, at least she can see you.

    Thanks! Didn't even think of it till I posted! Guess it was the rousing game of "chase the vacuum" that fried my brain!

    When Vegas was a pup I used a baby gate because I too wanted a "dog free kitchen" I was constantly tripping over him while I was cooking. They work great. $10 bucks at Wal-mart. Now that he is over 3 yrs old I can simply say "GO" and he will leave the kitchen.

    The area between my dining room and living room is wider and I can't do a baby gate there because of hte railing. So what I did his buy a sheet of plastic lattice from Home Depot and cut it lenght wise so it wasn't so take. I just took this and it's keeping all three of my guys out of the living room so I can hand out candy in peace. And you can cut, well saw it, to any size you want. Just file the edges when you're done.

    I have four different baby gates in the shed (I don't need them now). Baby gates were VITAL during potty training (and puppy rearing) as I corralled the dog being trained where I was so I could see them, monitor the pup's every move and stick to their strict potty schedule. Bea and Bo were trained to NOT TOUCH the baby gate so I can lean one up virtually anywhere and they'll still stay behind it. This works well for when the plumber or another work person had to be in the house and doesn't want two bulldogs up in their grill.
