Most of us, have heard stories about a dog jumping through a closed window. This can potentially be, very dangerous and / or, life threatening for our dog.
The approximate percentage of dogs, that will jump through a window is, 5%.
Where going to discuss, why they do this. The reason is simple, they wanted to go out. Whether their motivation was, to find you, to chase a squirrel, cat, or dog, they saw. Doesn’t really matter.
A dog doesn’t actually know what a window is. They have no clue, that there is an invisible force field in front of them. That is the primary reason, why they will initially jump through one. All they see, is a big opening in your wall, that they think they can get through.
It’s the same with people. We’ve all seen somebody, walk or run into, a closed sliding glass door. That’s why homes with little kids, put stickers all over the glass. The difference is, we learn to try and be more careful. A dog learns, that this is an easy way to get out.
So if you’re dog, does this once, and doesn’t get hurt. You can expect him to do it, many more times. If this is the case, please install window guards. For your dogs safety, and your sanity.
