  1. I hadn't realised, is this website American based? I live in the uk and both your suggestions, TXmom and waffles', are great but I'm not so sure the products are available over here. I will look for something similar though and they have given me ideas to go by. The coyote rollers aren't available here because I came across them during a desperate google search before when thinking of changing the gate to no 3 and can't for the life of me find a website that sells them here. Coyotes aren't a problem in the uk, thankfully, so I'm guessing not much call for the rollers! Waffles yes you are right, if I make the gate impossible to climb she most definitely will climb or find another way out! Our garden is enclosed with a 4ft stone wall all the way round. Half of it is topped with a high wooden fence ( which I am positive she can't jump/climb over) A quarter is the same but it has a lethal drop on the other side of it into a field of about 12ft. The last quarter of the fencing is chicken wire topped with barbed wire, and this has been the way she escaped in the past but I made a make shift barrier to stop her from getting to it so now she jumps the seemingly impossible gate no 3!! I am at my wits end! It's a trait that I know she will never grow out of and it's nearing lambing season over here now, I am surrounded by farmland, so the urge to go is stronger than usual!! Complete nightmare! Thanks to you both.
  2. PLEASE HELP!! I have done everything humanly possible to stop my 11 year old bc to escape the yard. Every time I think I've found out how she gets out, and fix it, she goes and finds another way! It's driving me crazy to the point where I've contemplated re-homing her (albeit briefly contemplated) We are lucky that we have a huge outside space spanning all around the house. The yard (for want of a better word) is gated and we have replaced the gate three times (an expensive thing to replace) and we still haven't been able to stop her from escaping that way. Our present gate is wooden, 10ft wide and 6ft tall. (I know bc can easily jump this height but leading up to the gate is an upward incline that adds up to 2ft to the height of the gate hence us thinking it would be impossible for her to jump. We were wrong!) Reason for this post..... Please can anyone suggest something I can fit onto the top of the gate that will make it impossible to jump.
