2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

 Crate training issue

PostSubject: Crate training issue   Wed Jun 25, 2014 10:58 pm

Crate training is for my boy is going well (he's 9 years old).

We're having one issue, though: he's fine when he's left home alone now (finally!), except for when the doorbell rings/when somebody knocks. He has severe separation anxiety.

I think that makes him realize he's home alone when nobody answers, and he proceeds to freak out and try to break out of the crate (I've discovered this using a remote camera).

I was wondering if using a DAP diffuser will help with this?

The thundershirt doesn't work, I've tried it. Neither does the tv or radio. He has always ignored sounds that come out of speakers.

I thinking of putting a note on the door that says something like: "guard dog on duty, do not ring bell or knock", but people may just ignore it. Your thoughts?

I do NOT want to desensitize him to the door/discourage him from barking...because of security reasons.

Any ideas?

Unplug the doorbell while you're away? Just need to find the electrical supply for the doorbell - then maybe even put a switch on it and you can just turn it off while you're out, flip it on when you're home.

I thought of that, but he responds to knocking as well. His crate is within eyesight of the front door (we had no other choice, the crate is so big its the only area in the house that it will fit in!), too.

Try keeping something of yours in his cage that has your scent to kind of keep him at ease.
