    I'll be buying a Pin for the first time soon. I have a German Shepherd and was wondering what people did to keep the pets off the machine, besides the obvious don't let them in the room. I'm thinking some plastic gates around it. Looking for some ideas. Thanks

    Does your dog jump on every surface? How do you keep it off the counter and kitchen table?

    My dog like to sit under one, but has never tried to jump on one.

    Easy. I train mine.

    My Springer Spaniels have eaten the subwoofer wires quite a few times. I wrapped them in loom and rubbed a bar of soap on it....didn't work. Next , I went to Pet Supermarket and bought "fooey". Some disgusting spray that is super bitter...it worked. No more chewed up wires. Do not use keyless locks on your coindoors. One of my dogs opened up my NF coindoor with his paw, stuck his head in and took out some new plastic protectors I got from laserrific , and a small motorcyle. Chewed up the motorcycle, and left the plastic protectors , as they laid to flat to the tile floor to be picked up.

    Spray a bunch of cat, dog, and deer urine on all your other furniture. Your dogs will avoid your pinball machines entirely.

    I kick mine in the nuts.

    Ha, trained or not, all it takes is one time for a dogs nails to run down the side. German Shepherds love jumping. Mines very well trained but like most Shepherds very curious. I don't forsee an issue but rather safe than sorry.

    No she doesn't but it's happened. I figure she'll be chilling on my feet. I'll probably throw up a baby gate on one side and close to the wall on the other.

    If you cut the ground prong off the plug you might get a nice shock going through the side rails.

    Any old timers want to agree

    I think your best option is to use the pinball-armor on your machines when you are done playing. But, a bit worried about the weight of a German Shepard jumping on the glass.

    Same way you keep your wife off the machine - buy a theme they don't like.

    Just get him a chair to sit on so he can play along like our dog does.

    You gave your dog a Fireball home edition? I'm calling the ASPCA on you.

    So the main difference between dogs and cats is that dogs are trainable and give a crap if you're unhappy with them. Why not learn to train your dog properly so you don't have to put up ridiculous fencing around your pinball? Any dog that's jumping on a pinball machine is a completely out of control animal that needs severe training.

    Well said!!

    Its only an issue when there are new people around and the dog gets excited. I have to tell people to move away from the machines or the dog will jump on them. Other than that, they know not to jump on things.
    Cats...that is a whole different story. Good luck training a cat, they do what they want to.

    Get the shock collar out and super glue that button down like I'm constantly preaching

    Agreed and all my cats now live outside, looking in the window silently meowing all day - where they should be.

    The dog will ignore the pinball machine.
