Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
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.

PostSubject: dog slobbering in cage then becoming soaked   Wed Dec 24, 2014 5:40 pm

when i leave the house i crate my husky and lately almost everytime i put her in there she comes out soaking wet from her own slobber, i can only assume shes out of breath because she is constantly trying to break out. Typically i put a kong toy with peanut butter in there and whether its there or not she still comes out wet. any suggestions on this? ive tried a shirt ive worn all day as well and that was torn to shreds, i figured maybe that would calm her down from trying to break out. anything i leave her with gets destroyed but i could do without the sopping wet dog everyday! thanks for any advice and help

Perhaps the crate is too warm. A wire crate might be cooler plus give her more to look at. Just a thought.

I agree with Amy, also, I haven't a clue on this, but this crate she has now seems small, perhaps a wire crate that is a little larger will make her happier, and less wet?

What is your routine with her being in the crate?  Morning when you're gone for work?  Do you exercise her prior to crate time?  If so, how long and at what pace?

If she has all this pent up energy to try to break out of a crate (which means my situation in my body right now completely sucks),  you can drain that energy prior to putting her in the crate and practice calming work as you get her in.

I think the shirt in the crate thing is overrated, as they can smell you throughout the house all the time and having a shirt inside the crate doesn't add much intensity of your presence to a dog. Since it ends up in shreds though, that is further evidence that she hates the situation in her body when she is in her crate.
