I bought the Summer Infant Sure and Secure Extra Tall Walk-Thru Gate Reviews for my puppy more than for my children. I have used a couple different baby gates in the past and I always found them annoying because you had to take them down and put them back up or step over them. Now stepping over them is not so bad for me, but my parents are older and when they come over this is hard for them to do. It can also be a pain if you are trying to move things or carry laundry baskets, plus trying to secure them with a baby in your arms, or while you're trying to block off a puppy can be difficult. When I saw this gate I knew it was the one that I wanted to try. It fits nicely against the wall, and I love the door! You can mount the baby gate and then you don't need to bother with securing it again. It's perfect for all my gating needs. It keeps the kids where they are supposed to be and the puppy where he's supposed to be. It's very durable and it looks nice too which I like a lot. I would recommend this gate for anyone that wants something easy and safe whether it be for a dog or a baby.
