Well, this thread wasn't really meant for just me - I just wanted to see if my dog is crazier than most or if others get to deal with this fun stuff. I'm a terrible long distance runner (I was a sprinter) so when "we" go for 5-7 mile runs it's really usually just me on my rollerblades and him running at full speed up and down the West Side Highway running path, down to World Trade, up to 24th Street, back down, etc. He loves running.

We hadn't used the crate in over a year (we had put it back in storage), so we were really just using it for this month to get him back to just chewing on the toys that we left in there with them. When he nibbled on the cage I filled up his Kong and froze it for him the next day so that hopefully he'd get tired trying to get the treats out of it. That worked for a day or two.

I guess I'm just confused how people always say their dog loves the crate - he hates it. We don't use it as a punishment, we feed him inside it whenever we're using it, so that he associates it with things he likes, etc.

I got a ton of great info in this thread from you guys, so I appreciate it! I'm planning to start with the no grain food, as coincidentally we had noticed he has been extra cracked out since we opened his newest bag of food (same brand, just a fresh bag) and had suspected the two were related. I had meant to call and see if they had somehow changed the formula - maybe there's more grain in it now or something??

Just FYI, I contacted two local dog behaviorists a that were on our Vet's recommendation sheet, and they are $400 PER HOUR!!! I'm in the wrong profession. I think the most we pay our most valuable consultant at work, is like $300/hour...

I crate both of my dogs during the day. They have no issue with it. I will agree with an earlier post, it is the coming winter that changes them. It's innate that they behave this way. My yellow lab has been peeing in the house and chewing things again in the past couple of weeks. Sounds like its time to lay down the law with discipline training.

My short hair was cracked out until I got my rhodesian, he seriously calmed her down. Now he is just sad since she passed away, and much to Chris's dismay I let him on the couch with me to snuggle.

When I crate mine, I would put a blanket over it to create a cave like atmosphere. Dogs like a den or cave to sleep and feel safe in. During a thunderstorm or 4th of July fireworks they would both lay up in the crate. They are also pack animals and really get upset when the other is not around.

Dude WTF?

If I put you in a cage after a year of letting you roam free you'd freak the fuck out ...

Watch the dog whisperer.

Figure out how to be pack leader ... Tough I know with Caitlyn in charge ... But it's not the dogs fault.

There is nothing wrong with Murphy.

It's how you are behaving with him and what he learns from that interaction.

Couldn't agree more. Something in his routine is different for him to act like this.

And I left that off (Jason is right!) - be the pack leader.

Doggy daycare for sure. If you can't afford it, there is medication. This sounds like textbook separation anxiety. It's a bitch to overcome.

Two at the same time? You're making Neil jealous!



Cesar Milan aka the dog whisperer is an incredible talent. Watch and learn.

Exercise, discipline.

And only then when the dog is calm submissive affection. My two know that unless they are calm, submissive that they wont get any affection, food, pats etc. Dog psychology really does exist.

I don't know how normal it is, but my dog who recently passed did that to any pile of leaves until they day she passed away. Too cute.

Josh, lets trade Murphy for Gus. You will see a huge difference after I give him back.

1: dog is fine
2: your still photo skills suck
3: that full body harness will never gain you control of your dog as it applies control over the strongest part of your dog.
4: he is having fun
5: because he is being allowed to
6: allow a behavior and he will continue/repeat
7: is he fixed?
8: if no do it.
9: get a collar that only applies control on the next/face/mouth
10: obedience classes. Have you done any? His humans need the training. Do a least 20 minutes training twice a day
11: three is the age where they are tween adult and teenagers. Adult strength with teenager brain.
12: controlling his behavior requires everyone in your house to participate from the moment he wakes up. Do not do anything when he is in crazy zone. Snap him out of crazy zone Cesar style. When calm reward by doing something he likes. Eg put collar on for walk. Feed him. If he goes crazy while waiting let him. be calm until he complies. FULLY. Your are not being cruel. A pack leader controls behavior. If he wants his food or walk wait wait wait until he is calm. Force him to sit. Use calm voice and hand signals.
13: if he calms down but gets excited when you bend over to put leash on or give food, withdraw leash or food wait for him to settle before trying again. Repeat as necessary.
14: control is obedience to pack rules. Set the rules and boundaries. Stick with them from first thing in the morning to last moment at night.

My dog Riley is almost 5 and he's almost as wild as when I first got him. At this point I'm not sure if he'll ever calm down, which is fine by me. He was a little happier riding in my Disco than the 90 but still loves camping and wheeling in the 90
