Question Pet Gate

What kind/where did you get your pet gate? I just need a small one for one area. Would a baby gate work? Does the gate attach to a wall? I would prefer not to do that.
Any ideas/suggestions - Thanks

Pet gates are pretty much just baby gates with a marked up price. You can buy ones can attach to the wall by mean of screws and have a swinging door, one that use force and have a swining door, and just plain old gates can use force and you can jump over them or take them off any time. And by force I mean you fit it really tightly.

I bought a baby gate at Zellers or Wal-Mart for 20$. The one I have is lockable or you can expand it and its just a simple gate. Once Illusion jumps on it and kicks off it stays there and the best part is its 2 layers thick so I can seperate my bunnies by a room and they can see and smell each other but not able to bite and fight through it..I highly recommend you get just a plain ol' baby gate.My arthritic mother even steps over it

I just googles this link which has a bunch listed.. Umm, you can definetly get them cheaper.. Even better idea check out Kijiji.com or some other classifieds!! Good luck

We just got a cheap baby gate. Ours is wooden with clear plastic panals and it doesn't screw onto the wall or anything like that - it's pressure mounted. The bunnies (and the puppy) have never gotten over it and I just step over it to get into their room.

Here's a picture of it...

I have pressure mounted gates as well. One is metal with a door that swings open. The other two are plastic that are baby gates. I did have to add NIC pieces to the top of Penelope's when we found her under our bed one Saturday morning. Luckily Teddy is not that adventurous - or maybe he is just a good bunny.

I suggest not getting a plastic part one. As a bunny will chew it possibly and plastic is no good.

My bunnies don't even go near the gate I have. Each bunny is diffrent, but with a whole room full of stuff to play with and chew on they leave the plastic alone. Plus it's completly smooth plastic and the edges are covered with wood, so I don't see how they'd get a grip on it to chew it. Usually bunnies will chew the edges of things from my experience.

Kitsune chewed up a few spots on the baby gates but my bunnies have never touched it.

All of you are the greatest!
Thanks for the advice and link - I'll look for a pressure mounted one.

Have a Wonderful Day !!

Those are all great ideas. When I had Roger, I just used those adjustable window screens. We already had those and they worked great. He got along with the cats, so I didn't mind if they jumped over it to come & go, but Roger never did jump it.

Well, I picked up one at Walmart this am. - I started to put it up - then realized I had a baseboard to deal with and it wouldn't work
I'm not sure what I'm going to do now.

Wal Mart takes everything back, so return it and get one that will go over baseboards? My basboards are low enough that I can just attach the gate higher than the bboards, so let us know!

Your right - one good thing about Walmart -
it's the bumper that isn't long enough to meet the wall because of the baseboard. I have no idea where to find one.

You can probably fill it in yourself with wood?? Maybe or rolled up cardboard?

I don't have much experience with rabbits, but I am thinking that you could just put a kid gate up and call that good. They are very stable.
