We try to keep our dogs mentally "busy." Most of our gates have cords attached so that the dogs can pull the gates open and closed. Everyone works them just fine (including Trouble) with the exception of Xena. She just pushes through with her weight and then waits for one of those silly Border Collies to let her back out :0)
Come on guys. What are you waiting for?
Xena, you don't want to work sheep? Let me get the gate for you.
Bye bye Xena Bean
Like father / like daughter
Jet closing the gate, time for dinner!
