|We have two EvenFlo Summit baby gates to keep the dogs in their part of the house, away from the cat food and my husband's office. The gates are pressure mounted, but sturdy and are mostly metal. I got them to stop the dogs from climbing them as puppies, since they have vertical bars... no place for paws to hang onto. They are only about hip-high, so they can get over them these days if they really wanted to. We got ours at Walmart for about $40 each
I second Tanuk's exercise and Kong suggestions. It sounds like he's a bit bored and taking it out on your belongings. Whenever our guys act up, it's usually just a matter of an extra mile on the walk and some more time spent on mental games and they're back to their (mostly) nondestructive ways. I also give my guys a Kong filled with catfish or tilapia, frozen for a couple hours, if I need to have them occupied for a decent amount of time. It won't last all day, maybe a couple hours if you're lucky, but it's a good distraction.
