It’s so bad, that Bandit, “destroys carpets, chews wires and cuts himself trying to get out of his crate,” according to the description on a YouTube video featuring the canine.

“The kitchen was the most ‘baby proofed’ area in the house, so I began blocking him in there so he wouldn’t hurt himself, as a trainer suggested,” the description of the video continued.

And yet, Bandit was still managing in his desperation to escape. Baffled, the owner set up his laptop with his camera recording to figure out how the canine Houdini was freeing himself from kitchen captivity.

Watch Bandit’s great escape in under a minute:

A friend of the dog’s owner, who posted the video on YouTube, wrote that after they saw the feat Bandit went through every day to escape, he was allowed full access to the house, instead of being kept in the kitchen.
