I threw this together recently so my Jack Russell – Moose (And yes this is where the JR_Dog comes from) will stop darting out on the back porch and scaring the deer away. My wife loves to watch them and get’s pissed when he messes with them.

Since I mentioned both Moose and my Wife (Sandra) I thought I’d post a pic or two of both of them.

Thanks for the feedback on the gate; it was quick and fun to build… as far as it holding him… provided the deer don’t mock him much and as long as I keep telling him he should be able to unlatch it, it’ll keep him from figuring out he could jump it in a second.. He’s 2 percent dog and 98 percent BRAT! For the most part, there’s not much that will stop him if he’s given time to figure it out.. which means I don’t leave him alone for too long.

Yes, he’s trained in 3 different types of Martial Arts and eats 3 small children daily… hahahaha; can’t you tell by how aggressive he looks while he sleeps.

Its a JACK! I give him a week and he will figure out how to unlatch it, run the deer, come home with a hind quarter, let himself back in the gate and if not for the leg bone you would never be the wiser. LMAO! Great job sir! Cheers

Hi Jr, that looks good, and will probably hold him until he figures out how to operate the lock, I give him 2 days. I am a little slower might take me a week, LOL. You have a great family as well Moose and Sandra, I mentioned moose first since this project is more for him unless you have trouble with your wife running out of the yard as well, LOL. I kill me, that’s enough, that’s my set good night:)

Good job with the gate but I don’t think you should keep your wife in a cave. It’s just not right.

Murch… thanks for the chuckle this morning… I forgot that the backdrop to that picture was when we went hiking through Smugglers Notch in Jeffersonville/Stowe Vermont. Very Pretty up there.

Good solution for the deer, my deer just ignore our attack cat, so he has decided to ignore them back. The
wife even thinks the fawns are cute when they eat her flowers, so I just sit back and enjoy. Thank you for
sharing your family, and I hope you keep having fun in the shop.

My manager used to have one. Put in one of those invisible fences (with the shock collar).

The dog figured if he ran and jumped over the wire it would only hit him once and he would keep going.

The dogs owner then put the collar around the dogs waist. To get his attention it would shock something a little more sensitive.

Next day he called to tell me all he could see of the dog was his rear end sticking up out of a hole in the yard. He went to investigate and in the bottom of the hole was the chewed up collar, ready to be buried.

hahaha! Yep, that sounds about right. Now that I own a Jack the question has been answered as to why they were only created to be on the smaller side… I think they would have taken over the world by now if they popped out the size of a Rotty.
