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: Luna is on a Rampage   Sat Apr 06, 2013 1:49 pm

Hello ladies and gentlemen, I am here before you because I'm in desperate need of help. Luna is nine months old she is crate trained at night, But doing the day she doesn't like to be crate she will move the crate and just claw the door. So we decided to leave her in the office, kitchen, and bedroom. This way it was a lot better for her to move and we just puppy proofed everything else around her. She was doing a lot better than being locked up in her crate. I'm not saying it was perfect but does alot less damage when we come home.

Just recently Luna been on a rampage, She destroyed our living room door yesterday, we are renting in the landlord live above us. I'm a strong believer in discipline, I walked her toward the door and say "NO!" She know what she did and I put her in her crate. This morning my girlfriend took Luna for a normal walk and I left for work, she put Luna in her crate (since we no longer have the living room door to block her) to go to Zumba got back a hour late and Luna put a hole on the wall.

I'm afraid they landlord will kick us out when they see the damage. Luna get plenty of Exercise is just one of these days she just lose it. I don't know what to do, before we leave the house we give her a Favorite toys and this bone she like a lot.

We take her to dog park and pay for doggie daycare just so she can get her engery out,but if left alone shes something else.


Please help.

Sounds like one issue you could be dealing with is separation anxiety. Huskies are a tornado of fur and many of them suffer from separation anxiety since they are heavy "pack animals".

The other issue is though, is that "plenty of exercise" to you, may not be "plenty" to her. I run my 9 week old for 2 minutes or less and he's zonked until the night, however; 14 month old "puppies" (or when their bones stop growing) could use up to 2 hours. (1 in the morning, 1 at night. Or, sometime when its not hot--I don't know if I would go for 2 hours at once.)

The other problem, I believe, is that she knows "she won". You upgraded her from a crate to a room when she complained and whined and destroyed enough. Now the room isn't good enough for her, and she's going to behave as she did before what got her what she wanted. Remember that you are in charge and there is always a way to train her that is what you need to be happy and successful, even if that means training her to be in the crate and behave for 5 minutes at a time before rewarding her.

To help training, you could try using the Thundershirt. The pressure around the nerves is supposed to calm and soothe animals (and even babies, too--but don't put that on a baby Wink ) I don't have one but I have heard that they work!

The last thing, is that remember that dogs do not understand cause and effect. You say you walked her to the door and said "No" but 99% chances are she doesn't get why you were disciplining her at that moment. She could have just as well shown remorse because you were mad and she loves you. She is not going to understand what she did wrong when you yell unless you catch her in the act and reprimand her while she is doing it.

Best of luck! Remember, where there's a will, there's a way!
