I know this isn’t much, but I’m back in the work room! That’s a good thing! This is for the deck on my cabin. I have two lab pups that are now 14 months old. This is a gate to keep them on the deck since we don’t have a fence. They go outside when we go outside, but if they get on my nerves and want out just to be out and I don’t I can put them on the deck and shut the gate and not have to worry about them getting out and taking off down the road or thru the woods or bothering anyone else. They haven’t learned their boundaries yet. I have no idea how long pine will last outside in the weather untreated. So I haven’t decided if I should paint it or just let it weather. I’m not sure how long it will take to trust 2 dogs not to run off when I let them out. So I might have to build a few of these over the next 12 years. I’ve always only had 1 dog and could open the door, let her out and trust her to stay there, but I don’t remember at what age that was. This is gonna be different of course with 2.
