Sammie, the office pug, is known for many things around the office… there’s his friendly nature, his wheezing excited grunts and of course his fondness for knocking over trashcans to feast on whatever he finds. It’s the last one that usually means we have to keep him penned into a safe zone for some of the day, allowing us and our trashcans a little peace of mind. We just didn’t count on one thing. He’s learned to open doors. This is the second gate that we’ve bought to try and stop Sammie from escaping into downstairs JibJab, but to no avail. The first was a very simple gate like this one, which no amount of reinforcing could hold Sammie back. This time we thought we had him beat, with a futuristic plastic gate that featured buttons. BUTTONS. He wouldn’t be able to solve a button locked gate… right? Wrong. It only took him a few weeks, but he did it. Witness an old dog learning new tricks, caught on hidden camera.
