Duke is getting out of his indoor kennel its an XL wire kennel w. 2 sliding latches this is where he typically stays in if we go out to dinner, shopping, etc otherwise he has free run of the house when were home. He used to sleep in the kennel too but has recently been given the entire room to sleep in. So now we put him in there last week and before we left the house I heard noises, i said I bet he's getting out of his kennel HOW ?? no clue~ he's just smart I guess because he's unlatching it - door wide open and laying in the middle of the room all happy. So I guess we've just hit a time in his life where when he leave now he can have free of that room ? I'd give him the whole house but not quite sure being we have a cat and he's ok with her & wonder if he'd go ballistic when we leave and tear down the blinds, tv, etc. I don't know what else to do short of putting a lock on the kennel. Sneaky little thing isn't he ? Though he's not little but not huge he's about 81 pds & 2 1/2 yrs old.
