crate isnt working! please read

my black and tan/beagle has broken out of, bent and litteraly ripped bars off of his new $120 crate! i got home and he stuck his head through the new hole he put in the crate. he was strugling to pull his head out, i think if i werent there he wouldve been very hurt. i feel i need to do something different. he wont go on a dog run unless im right there with him and i feel he'll tear the house apart if i let roam while we work(8hrs). he 6 month old so he wants to play. i walk him before i go to work and when i get home. i give him a toy and water, which he tips over, therefore has no water all day. im trying commands with rewards. basically he will not stay in the crate, he'll eat in it and thats it. ive had him for a week and not sure i trust him to roam. any ideas?

Yeah, I just got my dog this week. he's 7 months old and luckily was already crate trained. However if he really doesn't want to be in it, he knows how to get out so just today before I went to work I clipped my own human choker that I don't wear cause it's partially broken around the lock to keep him from barking at my dad. Dad let him out a little later though I think.
That is some dog to be able to do that, maybe you ought to see if you can get the manufacture to replace it or something.
Frankly, I wouldn't trust a dog to roam the house if he/she is new to the house. After a while sure. I've actually closed him in my room when I go out for an hour or so since he likes my room and he hasn't destroyed anything. I mostly use the crate when I sleep. I think it's an early thing really when pup's beds are inside of them?

There are solid aluminum "excape proof" crates you can buy. I don't they are cheap tho. Perhaps a plasic kennel and not a wire crate would work better.

he will walk into the crate willingly? Or do you have to put him in it?

can you dog proof a kitchen or bathroom for now?

I was totally going to suggest the bathroom

To test your theory on what he'd do if left to roam the house (or even to test your dog-proofing in a seperate room or bathroom) Just leave the house (on a weekend or evening) for twenty minutes. Drive away even. Then come back and check. You could leave for longer if he does well

In my experience that is normal for a Beagle. If they can't break out they will attempt to escape by dismantling the crate. I couldn't crate train Cleo because she would either destroy the crate or attempt to dig out (she broke off 2 nails doing that). I used the bathroom at first with a baby gate in front of the door to protect it. You could also try the fully open cage style crates (if you haven't already done that), so He can see whats going on while in there. I just picked up one for my Coonhound at the local pet store for about 100 bucks. The small ones are cheaper.

Try taking him to doggy day care a couple days a week to help him socialize & get out some of that puppy energy. They come home wore out & ready to sleep.

Have you tried using a room to block him off in? When our eskie wasn't yet housetrained we blocked her off in a bathroom with potty pads & a dog bed for the day.
