Curiosity is supposed to be a quality common to cats – and heaven knows we have some of those around here as well. But cats have nothing on puppies who’ve opened their eyes and are moving around. Now, they can see as well as smell their environment.
You see our whelping box has a low opening. I needed that before my puppies were born and it makes it easy for me to get in and out of the box. As the puppies get more curious, they like to explore and the low opening is low enough for them to see over and into the room. It’s only a question of time before someone bails out.
When that happens, Jack and the lady will put the next gate in the opening making it a little more challenging for them to escape. At the pace they’re growing, that new gate won’t hold them back for long.
