Dog Training/Crate Training - Anxiety


Fed up wrote at 2014-02-27 16:17:43
I'm having same issue with a Maltese male about a year old.

He is fine I've even tried kenneling him with our well behaved jack Russell and daschound. Nothing! As soon

As the door is closed I get a high pitch scream that lasts hours upon hours.

No sleep other dogs can't stand it, kids can't sleep. He is in kennel

Bc one broke his leg trying to get to us jumping and fell back on his leg.

Two bc he isn't potty trained. Separation anxiety is some of it

But the kennel is torture to him and us!!! We can't do this any longer.

The dr doesn't seem to want to put him on anything

Other than trazadone and that isn't working plus I don't want

Him drugged I want him help!! Trazadone doesn't fix the problem and only lasts two hours at a time
