We love him very much, but he's constantly out-of-order. Complete pain in the &*s I've seen lots of answers on how to get him to behave a little better, but please if you have anything simple that worked for YOU, I'd like to know. thanks!
RavenRose What exactly is he doing that is "out-of-order"? There are so many things that can be done in so many different ways that will all depend on the dog, but we need a bit more information as to what exactly the issue is.
Everytime I leave the house my dog is freaking out and destroying things. I've really tried everything so far, but nothing is working. Now I have to leave him in a room with no breakable objects. Any ideas or things to try that HAVE WORKED for you.. thanks
hitchhiker Hey, we used to have EXACTLY the same problem. My solution isn't really perfect, and perhaps a little primitive but it worked: Just before we left each time we'd always say "we're coming back soon, don't worry" in the tone associated with that ...
hitchhiker also a great trick we discovered to limit the damage earlier on (before we realised how to make him stop) was to leave decoys around -- stuff like old boxes or plastic bottles that weren't the couch, the wall, the door!
