Red face garbage

my gsd gets mad when we leave the house and to punish us i guess she gets into the trash and throws everything out. and she peed on the carpet today when we left her alone. the bad thing is we were only gone for like thirty minutes. any ideas how i can prevent this from happening again???

start house training your dog.
crate your dog. put the garbage
somewhere where your dog can't get to
it.

What she's doing is called separation anxiety. The safest place for her really is in a crate. Most dogs actually like them, it's a little den, their own personal space.

My female was rescued at 6 months old, brought in as a stray, history u/k but most likely abused by a man the way she acted around men. She had terrible separation anxiety. Her crate was always her safe haven, still is and she's 8 1/2 now. She loves her box, she was hanging out in there earlier when I was doing laundry.

if you don't want to use a crate (although I think its best, aside from keeping your dog safe it will help it relax when you are away) then I suggest getting baby gates and blocking the dog from areas like the kitchen

the dog i have now is the first dog i crated. i never used the crate as a punishment. i never left my dog in the crate longer
than 4 hours. i always had someone come in and take my dog
out for potty breaks and treats.

i stopped usuing the crate when my dog was 4 months old.
everything was fine untill he turned 8 months old. at 8
months old he decided to eat the house and funiture. so,
back in the crate you go. i stopped crating him again
when he was 15 or 18 months old. my dog is 2.5 years old
now and everything has been fine without the crate.

my dog started going to his crate for naps. sometimes
when you treated him he would go to his crate to eat it.
many times during the night he would leave our bedroom
and go to his crate. the crate is our friend.
