We use baby gates. Jazzy can be in the TV room behind a baby gate while the others are in the living room & dining room.

Crate & rotate isn't as bad as it seems once it becomes a routine. ;)

We have gating in all of the downstairs rooms. Unfortunately Kayden can and does jump all of them, so it isn't a safe option.

I think more than anything else it is just a transition trying to get all the dogs on a new schedule when you are in the house.

Unless you're an idiot like me...I keep forgetting which dogs can go out together...and I have to scoop Fig up at the last minute. :rolleyes2: I couldn't handle dogs that would fight...because I'm absent-minded...I'm really, really good for a while, then start forgetting.

Yeah-- my dogs could jump the gates, but since they don't KNOW they can, it's not a problem. Haha.
Kayden just must be smarter than my guys.
Shades thinks if he pushes his nose thorough the bars, he'll eventually be in the other room. It never works though. :crazy2:

We've been doing it for three years - it's habit, but it's still a pain in the butt, and I still feel bad. Every day. :|

But it's part of life with the three of them.

Yep, the more we stay on a schedule the easier it gets but there are still those days you hate putting someone away.

It's still much better than the alternative

I would use Demo's line when he gets in trouble but I assume he has probably run out of excuses. Sorry, no I didn't but I'll fire off a copy of the original tonight when I get home :dance:

Picture sent!!

Also a quick Manny update. Manny is going into "foster" with Greg (my best friend) and Manny's girlfriend Josie :wink: No strings attached, but if things go well (which they will), hopefully Manny will have found himself a home. Funny how things come around. I fostered and placed Josie with Greg almost five years ago when she was just a pup.
