Had an 85 lb pure bred pitbull and 135 lb Rotti both dogs where exceptional pets. The rottweiler even liked cats. Neither breed is born vicious.

I think the issue is that they are much more capable of doing severe damage.

I agree, to make them vicious most dogs need to be brought up treated nasty. The Pit Bull breed especially, gets such an undeserved, bad rap. Our dearly departed Ben was also one but, because of that reputation, whenever we are asked about it, at places with breed restrictions, we always declare our dog to be a Lab, or just a hound.

The irony is Black Labs, Dalmatians, in particular, have been so inbred because of their popularity (we had one, Jenny, an alpha female) their personality can be unpredictably dangerous. Fortunately Jenny was just nuts. I had a friend whose sweet German Shepard was mauled to death by his neighbor's Black Lab.

Josie prefers being outside, anywhere. But our bed, be it house or trailer, is her den. It's the only thing that makes me wish we could fit a king size bed in ET-19.

Both our dogs are ruled by our cats, in fact the cats keep the dogs from leaving their room by sleeping on the room threshold. The cats have free roaming of the house, the dogs are limited to one room....go figure.

For years we had three dogs. Gopher plus the Weiner Dog brothers. Gopher felt that she had an exclusive on my wife, so when we went to bed, she would lay down in the hall and dare them to try to get around her. I would have to step over Gopher, pick up the Weiners and put them at the foot of our bed. This went on for years.

What a crew.

Lynn, I travel with Border Terriers, about 12-13Ē at the withers. Standing on their hind legs, they can easily reach the door latch from the inside. Learned to slide the latch cover in about a minute. So, I use a single panel from a wood and mesh baby gate propped at an angle in front of the door to keep them from reaching the latch. Otherwise, a paw or nose on the latch and away we go!
If you only care about damage to the screen fabric, the pet screening really works. I used it on a previous Rv to replace the fabric that was easily damaged by a standard poodle. It lasted for years.

I bought a piece of clear plexiglass and cut it to fit over the screen. Screwed it into the frame of the door. Itís practically invisible. Make sure if you do it you tape off both sides of the plexiglass where you are going to cut and use a really fine toothed saw blade. Also drill pilot holes where the screws are going to go or the plexiglass will crack or split.

I had a spare piece of plexiglass that fit inside the screen track so NO screwing was required. Just flex the plexiglass to fit into track. Pup can see out.

You really don't want it invisible. Your dogs need to see it.
Unless you worried what your neighbours think. I don't.
