Our dog Rex usually (SIT) outside our front gate and (BARK). Every time he (WANT) to come into the garden he (BARK) until someone (OPEN) the gate. Last year the neighbours (COMPLAIN) because of the noise, so my husband (SPEND) weeks training him to press his paw on the latch to let himself in. Rex soon (BECOME) an expert at opening the gate.

However, when I (GO) out shopping last week, I (NOTICE) him in the garden near the gate. This time he (BARK) so that someone would let him out ! Since then, he (DEVELOP) another bad habit. As soon as he opens the gate from the outside, he (COME) into the garden and (WAIT) until the gate shuts. Then he (SIT) and (BARK) until someone lets him out.After this he immediately lets himself in and (BEGIN) barking again. Yesterday my husband (REMOVE) the gate and Rex (GET) so mad that we (NOT SEE) him since.
