How to Choose the Right Height Pet Gate: Supported by Customer Reviews

In this article, we present our top pet gate recommendations based on valuable customer feedback. Whether you have cats, large dogs, or medium/small dogs, we've got you covered!

For Cats:

First you should know. Almost all cats can jump over a 40-inch high gate.

For short-legged cats. you can confidently choose the 55-inch cat gate

For breeds like American Shorthair, Sphynx, Maine Coon, Ragdoll,  you can choose either a 55-inch or 61-inch gate. We lean towards recommending the 61-inch gate.

For breeds like Domestic Shorthair, British Shorthair, Garfield, British Blue, Siamese, and Devon Rex, we suggest considering a 61-inch or 72-inch gate, with a preference towards the 72-inch option.

Please keep in mind that these are rough guidelines based on breed. It's crucial to consider individual factors such as your cat's body length, weight, age, activity level, and whether they are indoor or outdoor cats when determining the most suitable gate height.

For those cats that can jump over our gates, we offer a return and refund policy. However, some customers whose cats can jump over the gate have chosen not to return or refund. The feedback we received during follow-ups is that while the cats can jump over the gate, the gate itself acts as an obstacle, and the cats prefer to play elsewhere, reducing their access in the long run.

For large dogs:

We recommend choosing the 40-inch pet gate for large dogs, as the height gives them a sense of pressure and discourages jumping.

Something you should know:
1. We have sold over 1200 of these 40-inch gates for large dogs and have not received any complaints about dogs being able to jump over the 40-inch height.

2.1 Most dogs, being intelligent and generally having a high level of obedience, understand that the gate is meant to restrict them. Therefore, they are less likely to attempt to jump over the gate.

2.2 However, we occasionally receive complaints about dogs knocking down the gate. Our gates are designed to withstand a certain level of impact (up to 200 pounds with a 45-inch width opening), but if you have a less obedient or stubborn medium to large-sized dog that repeatedly crashes into the gate, it may decrease the gate's lifespan or even knock it down. In such cases, additional pet training is highly recommended.

For Medium and Small Dogs:

Our 30-inch safety gate is ideal for most medium and small dogs, providing an adequate barrier for their average jumping abilities.

In exceptional cases, like Border Collies with remarkable jumping abilities, the 40-inch large dog gate could be the answer. Like our 40-inch gates for large dogs, over 1200 satisfied customers attest to the success of our 40-inch gates for medium and small dogs.
