Strider does the same. He doesnt like to be away from me at all.
even now Shasta is throwing a fit because we're all in the livingroom and she's in the crate to stay out of trouble right now! my husband just got home from work and he's trying to breath for a minute before i have to go to work and Shasta is just losing her mind!!! They're seriously convinced we're trying to kill them with boredom. puppies.
Shasta just wants to be with her owners. it's pretty normal. is the crate in the living room with you guys? or is she alone in a different room and can hear you?
hmm, well i don't have a solution...sorry. but i can offer empathy to some degree.
Cody is 10 months and has to be crated only when we are not home. he is barking the moment he hears us, and won't stop until we let him out.
lets say we are trying to unload groceries. the options are:
-leave him crated so the grocery unloading goes easier and hear him bark the entire time
-let him out so your ears get a rest, and hope he doesn't go barrelling into the bags still on the floor. (limited counter space in our condo)
so i can relate. if we are home, he expects to be free. period. and he raises **** if we're there and he's stuck in the cage.
I'd THINK that ignoring it is best. and eventually (days, weeks, months?) they'll figure out barking gets them nowhere. we cave though, and just let him out....
good luck :
Sorry if I've missed this some how, but do you wear out her little butt? I love tired dogs!
:rofl:When Abby is displeased with me I get this cold
icy look from her. You guys know this look. Its a
female thing. Species is irrelevant...
