Our dog has just turned 1 year. We arent sure of her breed but vet guesses some kind of terrier/border collie mix.She has always been a GREAT dog. Very smart and a fast learner. She is potty trained and has a doggy door that lets out to a very large fenced in area. She has never been destructive UNTIL just recently. It started with just taking our shoes outside when we were gone. Then she destroyed a pair of my glasses when we were gone. I do my best to put stuff out of her reach, which I never had to do before but if its light and she can drag it, it seems to be fair game to her. She has toys so she shouldnt be board and she is GREAT when we are at home. She loves car rides and her life revolves around us so I think she is getting mad at us when we leave. Today was the icing on the cake....we came home after being gone for about an hour or so and she had torn up kid books and shredded diapers....all of which she left on our bed for the most part. She is my first dog and I really am at wits end with this behavior. I don't know what to do with her. She is my baby so I will NOT get rid of her BUT I am so frustrated. She is not crate trained, I dont like most ways of crate training and like I say, she has always been great since she can go outside as she pleases. Help!!
