BABY GATES for what purpose??
My boys would simply laugh at me if I thought that they could possibly keep them from a bitch in season!!
One boy we had (thankfully not in my own house) was a total escape artist and I'd put him in a vari-kennel inside of a wire crate that was clped all around it closed!
I found putting the boys in the escape-proof dog run outdoors works peachy…. girls can be indoors in crates... this will be the first year in a while I will have had to deal with bitches in season that actually live in my house... so it shall be fun I am sure 🙂
Well if nothing else you will remember why you had only same sex before! …ggg
