Door Darting

Dino has taken to door darting, jumping over the scat mat and through the front door. He always has been a door darter, but just recently he figured out that he can leap across the scat mat without harm.

I am scared to death as nearly all my heart is wrapped up in my little boy, and I'm afraid the great outdoors of our neighborhood wouldn't be very kind to him.

Any solutions to try would be well received as in the last two days Trish caught him by the tail, and I managed to grab him by his ever so svelte primordial pouch.

Ahh, that house you're rebuilding. Suggest a double door entry with space in between. for now, go out thru the garage and don't hit the button till you are sure the darter is safe inside.

Damn, John. EXTREME caution must be utilized until you can come up with a foolproof cure. I have no ideas for you, but I will send good vibes that the little stinker calms down.

Thanks Rascal and Carl! Detached Garage so that's out, and for the moment I was just thinking of a bigger scat mat.

Worse case-- put him up when you leave the house. It won't please him, but it'll keep your heart from jumping out of your chest :/

That is an interesting contraption. I don't believe that I have seen anything like that in the US.
