Today more than ever, we need the welcome and company of our pets. While most of the time they bring us joy, happiness, relaxation and company – sometimes they eat our couch!
Shortly after adopting our sweet, seemingly docile Ashby, (Pitbull weighing 80 pounds), we returned home from work to find our couch, pillows, rug and ottoman all over the house – in one form or another – feathers still floating through the air. It was apparent she had some separation anxiety, so we decided it was time for our sweet girl to stay in a safe place while we were out and about.
We quickly ordered an Evenflo Position and Lock Tall Pressure Mount Wood Gate from Amazon. It was exactly what we needed! This gate is 32″ high and extends out to at least 46 1/2″ wide, and fit our hallway perfectly! The grid openings are about 2″ x 1 1/2″, so our fur child cannot get out. What I like about this gate is that it is very lightweight – a pine pressed combination of wood and plastic – and is portable, so we can move it around as needed.
We bought this sturdy gate in 2014 and 6 years later, chew marks notwithstanding, we are still using it on a daily basis. It is not advised to use the gate outdoors, as the wood will likely become destroyed. I definitely recommend this gate if you are looking to keep your pets and furniture safe!
