As I was visiting some friends, recently, I fell in love with their very attractive, super convenient and easy to operate, indoor dog gate. I suppose I experienced gate envy. For the last 10 years, we have been using fireplace screens as dog gates in our home (Don’t judge, it’s called making do). I have to admit, they are very attractive, but are a royal pain to open and close to get into the kitchen, where we keep our dog. These heavy fireplace screens are less than what I would call safe, falling over and almost crushing our sweet dog more often than I want to admit. And, on more than one occasion, our sneaky little dog has squeezed between the “gate” and the wall and run rampant through the house, having a heyday while we are at work and school. Basically… not the best set-up. So, we are now the proud owners of REAL dog gates! I feel like we’ve stepped up in the world!
Fireplace screen. It looks good, but not the best choice as a dog gate.
New dog gate! Safe, secure and convenient.
Found on Amazon. Summer/Multi Use Walk-Thru Gate
No falling over, no trying to climb over or lift the entire gate… and there will be NO escape and bolt, while we are away. These gates are so easily installed. You don’t have to attach them to the wall, they are very secure and have an opening for easy entry and exit. I love our new dog gates and highly recommend them. There is no need for gate envy, this product might be the perfect dog gate for you and your furry friend.
Happy decorating. Caprice~Cailin Design
