Haha I think your pup is a smart little Boo. Our boy, Charlie, ripped through three kennels before we invested in a thick metal one. He didn’t escape, he ripped it apart.

Haha! That is so funny! Dogs are smart animals! I had a Rotty puppy that did something similar. She could get out of her kennel, and I have no idea how, but I would come home and she would greet me at the door! I ended up locking her kennel and then turning it around so the door part was against a wall. Sometimes you just have to get crafty!! Good luck! haha.

I don’t know if it’s normal, but you certainly have a very clever puppy on your hands.

Oh yes. Our beagle has escape so many times it’s not even funny. Dogs can be crafty when left to their own devices. I feel your pain!

Dogs can be very smart! And they can squeeze into places you wouldn’t expect. We have a extra tall dog gate with a small cat door. Our 50lb dog squeezed through that tiny hole last night. A hole meant for a 10lb cat! We had to make the door only open a few inches, just enough for our cat to squeeze through so now he can’t go through.

@Fair-ytalelove:  I’m sorry, I know you’re worried, but laughing over here imagining a little 6 1/2 week old puppy doing this! Too funny. @mixtapehearts is right, they’re very crafty.

After we moved, I had my mom watching our yorkie (new place for him and we were worried to leave him just yet). Well shortly after we left, she said she caught him doing a balancing act on the back of the couch, trying to paw at the door knob! Lol. They’re very smart.

LOL… You’re puppy is going to be a handful when he’s an adult dog.  But yes, dogs are smart animals and can get crafty!  Good luck and try not to worry.

Wow!  What kind of dog is he?  Our pit bull used to open the front door and chase cars.  Really irritating.  That dog could even open doors with round knobs!

Sounds like you’ve got a smart pup on your hands!  Better get to training him or he’s going to run the place 🙂

Totally a thought out plan!

My dog is also an escape artist.  When we take her to the dog park, she isn’t at all interested in the other dogs.  She walks around the perimiter and looks for an opening.  It’s like we’re watching an episode of Prison Break.

Sounds like a normal clever puppy to me. You’ve got your hands full!
