Unhappy seperation problems!!!!!

Ok so Max is not doing well with the crate still he exscapes everytime now. I have put things next to it to hold it in place I have done everyhting to keep him from breaking out. Now the crate is usless Im afraid he will hurt himself now. Not to mention he is distroying my apt. The carpet by the door is torn to shreads.... the door is scrated up so bad... molding is scartched too...he is peeing inside when im gone. (which was going so well prior to his breaking out) I need help. I dont know what to do. He also barks and crys for a long time when i leave and barks louder when i get home. Some one please tell me what I can do. I would love to not need the crate but i need my carpet and paint to still be on the walls. UGH!!!

How in the world does a dog escape from an enclosed crate? Are you using a crate or a playpen/x-pen?

oh I know it sounds crazy. It is a metal crate with a plastic floor mat. The first escape was he broke the plastic bottom and flipped it over and bent( yes BENT) the bottom bars (with his teeth) and climbed out. The second time I have 45 lb weight in my cloths basket on 2 sides of it.... he bent the door in towards him and got out. I then put zip tie to hold them all together... and somehow... he got out again. crate was right side up door still closed. He met me at the door? where i was missing about 3 feet of carpet! ugh

This is very very very dangerous for him, he could break nails, toes, teeth, and cause other injury to himself. Have you considered boarding him? There are all day daycares for dogs. Have you had him since he was a young pup or did you rescue him? If you rescued him were they not aware of this problem? You need to do something asap. Either find a boarding facility that offers daycare, or get him to your vet for other options such as tranquilizers. This will require bloodwork and followups. I don't recommend a pet be put on tranquilizers all the time and neither will a vet...I do think your best bet is daycare but this dog CANNOT be alone anymore.

Yes rescued. 4 months ago. no one at the pound told me anything. He just started actually breaking out this week. not to say he wasnt trying all the other times. as far as boarding... that scares me as far as money goes. I saw in petco this stuff from ceasar milan called relax. its supposed to help with seperation issues. have you heard of it? would you recommend trying it before the vet. I would rather it be a natural drug then one from the doctor.

I would NEVER give something over the counter that is to calm your dog on a daily basis. I have given my dogs over the counter calming aids strictly for a one time trip. I think whether you want to give that or a RX that is between you and your vet but I would at least discuss it with your vet to see if they recommend that brand and if its ok to give on a regular basis. Bloodwork should still be done regularly to make sure he is healthy and stays healthy.

NP I know its scary and trust me annoying (my chihuahuas ruined my carpet in my old apartment) just think when we get stressed out our body reacts to it in a negative way, your dog is OVERLY stressed and its not comfy nor safe for him. GL and please let us know what your vet says Also please check back for others input, to me immediate action needs to be taken which is boarding or speaking to your vet, but someone may have a quick alternative option for you.

keep in mind that there are tranquilizers (make your dog sleepy) and there are anti anxiety meds (help relieve the actual panic) and the difference.

You can have a sedated dog that is still internally panicing because your gone, so the problem isn't fixed.

There are solid aluminum crates you can buy that are excape proof, but they are pricey.

Does he have anything to do when you gone? A kong or anything?

Good grief Thank you for saying that. I should re-check my wording and do more thinking before I continue speaking sometimes.

Anti anxiety meds are ok for long term use but typically require check ups, tranquilizers are not given to use daily. Geez sorry
