    .... how to open the back door and get back in :D
    Now I wouldn`t normally be impressed... but with this back door, you have to hold the handle down and then push pretty hard on the door, with the handle still as far down as it will go, before it will open.
    It can be tricky.. there have been a few times when my daughter can`t even get in lol

    So his impressed me, that dogs got brains :D

    He stands on his back legs, and leans all his body weight onto the door, while he tries to get his front paws around the handle and pull it down and hold it long enough to fall through the door and get in :D

    lol sounds like Jack has Sunny trained perfectly

    I wish ... when he sees me picking up his poop, he looks at me like his disgusted with me :rolleyes:
    Sometimes, he even tries to run away from me, as if his ashamed to be seen with someone who collects poop

    Haha! smart little doggies! :) We have had to take the kitchen towel off the lower cupboard door handle as Benjie would pull it open and bark at me to get him a treat! :) and his partner in crime Oscar would be sitting behind him wagging his tail like mad waiting for one! :) so now he has to come and tap me with his paw to ask for one! :) He's to smart for his own good sometimes! hehe!
     
  8. Both my dogs can open all the doors in ouw house! I am half considering replacing all the handles with knob:Ds that you have to turn!:D

    They will find a way !!!
    You might aswell, give up now and just put dog flaps on all the doors :D

    Sailors already been trying his new found skill on the kitchen to hallway door and toilet door, much to my totaly amusement :rolleyes:
    The kitchen-hallway door is a pull on, not a push one tho, so 10/10 for Sailors persistant, his convinced he can bend the laws of physics :D It WILL BECOME A PUSH DOOR IT WILL !!!

    Have you tried turning the handles upside down so you push up instead of down to open them? This has cured Bizkit of his door opening skills :) but it took my old dog about 10 mins to work out the handle needed to go up instead of down :rolleyes:

    Sounds like a fantastic idea, but there is one flaw..... I will end up forgetting about this and become trapped in the rooms myself :eek:
