Helo im going nuts!
I just got a 3 year old german shepherd mix from a shelter. I thought i was lucky because shes house trained, and cat,dog and people friendly. It took her two days to learn sit! But lately shes been driving me nuts. I know being from the shelter, crates arent her biggest friend. I have to work 8 hr shifts so when im not home i have to crate her. She barks and howls and tries to get out of her crate after being left alone for 2 mins, sometimes before i even leave. I thought maybe it was the crate considering she did come from the shelter ...so i left her in my room alone, free to wander the room and play with her toys...big mistake , she destroyed my room. How on earth to i let her know the crate is okay? And when lefted alone? I feed her in the crate, she has toys in the crate and she is perfectly fine being in the crate when im home but the moment she is alone shes crazy !
