Dog Gates for Larger Dogs
Sometimes, dogs need to be concealed with a dog gate, so they don't get into trouble. This can get tougher with bigger dogs.
In 1969, American audiences were introduced to the larger than life Scooby Doo. Scooby along with Shaggy, Daphne, Fred, and Velma went from small town to small town solving ghoulish mysteries in the hazy, counter culture infused Mystery Machine van. In each episode, we were taken on a wild ride, usually led by the antics of Scooby Doo. With Scooby Doo, we were sure to see a six foot pup (man he was huge!) inhaling large quantities of food (that must be why!) while stumbling into places he was not supposed to be. This large dog's hunger and curiosity were great for entertainment and solving crimes, but his tendency to get into trouble is not a great trait for our dogs at home. If you are the owner of a big dog, it is important that you use a tall, durable dog gate to make sure that your dog's curious, crime-solving nature doesn't get him into trouble.
The Tall and Wide is perfect for keeping jumping and climbing dogs in place.
A Gate for a Jumper
Some dog gates are just not big enough to contain bigger dogs. Many of these bigger dogs simply jump over the gate that has been put up. Often, dog gates range anywhere from 20 to 32 inches tall, but there are a few that come in at an even taller height.
The Tall and Wide Auto Close Gateway Gate
The tallest dog gate available at PetStreetMall is The Tall and Wide Auto Close Gateway Gate by Kidco. The Tall and Wide Auto Close stands at an intimidating 36 inches tall and can space out to 47.5 inches wide. This size is great for guaranteeing that your dog will not be getting into areas that are off limits by reducing his ability to leap over the gate. This gate is also pressure mounted to ensure that it locks into place and utilizes a magnetic locking mechanism to snap the gate back into place. Additionally, there is a hold button that allows you to suspend the door in an open position and allow free traffic flow.
A Strong Gate for a Strong Dog
Bigger Heads = ???
According to a recent study found in the journal Behavioral Processes, the size and shape of a dog's head is a strong indicator of his strength. William Helton, a senior lecturer in the psychology department at the University of Canterbury, has conducted years of research that indicates that "just looking at the size, width and basic shape of a dog's head can then inform the viewer about the dog's ability to fight, pull and run." Of course, dog owners spend a great deal of time with their canine and inherently know what type of strength he has.
For bigger, stronger dogs, it may be troublesome to find the right gate because they have learned that weak pet gates can be busted open if enough pressure is placed on it. So, it's important that dog owners find a durable option.
The Safeway Pet Gate is mounted to the wall, which ensures security and strength.
The Safeway Wall Mounted Pet Gate
One of the strongest pet gates is the Safeway Wall Mounted Pet Gate
. The Safeway is a swinging gate that is permanently mounted to the wall, which adds extra strength and security. The gate includes an exclusive directional feature that ensures that the gate only swings one way. This is particularly great for dog owners that want their gate at the top of the stairs and don't want to worry that the gate will open up out over the staircase. Also adding to the strength, the Safeway is constructed from strong tubular steel and is covered with a non-toxic coating, ensuring safety for pets and children. This gate is designed for the top of the stairs, but is versatile enough to fit in a doorway, as a room divider, or at the bottom of the stairs.
