Gosh, I cant believe that Cujo can get out with 2 pad locks and 1 carabiner.

So is he actually braeking the door down? or breaking the hinges?

I was wondering the same thing. Not just a carabiner but a threaded carabiner. I assume he is breaking the cage.

I'm not sure I could live with Tucker knowing he could loosen the lug nuts on my truck wheels.

Totally puppy proof your home. of course he will find things you didn't even know or think about but it happens. Slow progression and when he acts up stop and start all over again. Good luck

My biggest piece of advice is this: Get down to his level and make sure anything he can reach is taken away. If you leave it out, it's fair game lol

Plus walk him a lot before you go to he has no accidents

This. I've been leaving my 1.5 yr old out and I just make sure everything is out of reach, doors are closed, and I put toys/bones near things he's likely to destroy so he has a choice to play instead of destroy.

I also tire him out before i leave so he'll just want to rest. As stated earlier, just start w/ short times and readjust each time an incident happens.

and dont forget ninjas will be lurking around LOL they find the darndest things to get into at first oh and hide your tv remote up high that seems to be a favorite chew toy for boxers it is a process and takes patients when the ninjas visit but you just clean it up and start over it usually doesnt take long for them to figure out freedom= being good
