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.

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.

PostSubject: Husky digging through a door   Fri May 17, 2013 12:16 am

So I have an 11 month female husky and she's suddenly been developing separation anxiety issues. She has her own room that she plays around in when I'm not home but lately she's been trying to dig through the door. Its a wooden door and she's basically destroyed it. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix her separation anxiety? The weird thing is that she doesn't go all crazy when I get home like I keep hearing people say. She's actually perfectly calm when I open the door.

Two of my huskies do the same thing. I have to put them in a kennel when I leave for work. One of them got to the point where he will break out of the kennel so I will take him to work with me until I brought another kennel that he will not break out of and he won't himself trying to get out. You can try a thunder shirt. Or a separation anxiety coller.

How much exercise is she getting throughout the day? Sounds to me like you may have a bored husky on your hands.

Orion does this as well when I put him to bed at night - he sleeps in the laundry. I thought it was an aversion to being shut in at first but then I realised that if I walk him when I get home from work he has a nap during the evening then is wide awake again at bed time so digs and howls because he is bored. Now I walk him late after tea then come home have some play time, a quick brush and off to bed straight away and he just goes to sleep, although he will still do it in the morning about 10 mins after my alarm goes off if I'm not up yet - just to let me know he's awake and waiting for morning walkies Smile
If your girl is getting plenty of exercise then maybe try rescue remedy to calm her? We had the footpath outside our house dug up recently and the sound of cutting concrete terrified Orion he worked himself into a frenzy over it, I gave him some rescue remedy and it worked wonders Smile
