When setting up a “success station” we want to be sure that wherever we put the dog, they will be secure and not disturbed. We also want to be sure that the dog is unable to open or escape this area without an adult knowing.
I have used many types of gates over the years and find myself coming back to the old standard.
Pros of this type of gate:
An adult need to lock it into place physically vs. rely on a mechanism that some other fancy gates have.
Comes in different heights and widths
Can be moved to any doorway when needed
If your dog chews he may enjoy chomping on this gate
Fingers can reach through gate
Some dogs may push hard and knock out of place to escape. (know your dog and observe their comfort level with the use of the gate as a “success station.”)
