Our other beagle loved opening the fridge and getting into cupboards. We ended up using baby locks on our cupboards and a chair in front of the fridge and it stopped her from going into it. But if the chair wasnt there she was in there when we would leave the house. She was 8 yrs old but she was one smart dog. The baby proof straps and bungy cords didnt work for us. She still managed to get into the fridge but the chair scared her. But you have to put it a certain way so that they dont use it to get on the counter. Dogs are too smart for their own good.
