Well to make a long story short, our dog has been nothing but a pain since we got him. We cant even leave the house for half hour with out him destroying something. We went to the city for a little bit today, put him in his kennel we just bought for him inside our garage as the weather was cold and damp outside. Come home to find him literally destroyed the $200 kennel we bought.(second one) He went mental and broke all the wire mesh it was made with and got out of it. But he is fine in it overnight when we are at home. I am at wits end here and don't know what to do with him any more. We had thought he wasn't getting enough of a work out when we walked him, so we had ran him till he was played out and it never effected his behaviour. I really don't want to give him away to another family and him terrorize them, and we can't be putting up with him doing stuff like this every time we need to go somewhere. Also our two year old son can't go anywhere near him, the dog will run up to him and steal his mitts off his hands, or if he has any food in his hands the dog will steal it right away. I just don't know what to do anymore! Anyone else have experience with a dog that doesn't behave? One that can't be by himself? What did you do to fix the problem?
