Wait. You haven't tried a crate yet? How would you know what he'd do in a crate til you try?

Sorry, short of a doggie straight jacket I can't think of a good non confining tool that will actually accomplish what you're after with any reasonable success rate. You can't expect a dog to be anything but a dog while he is without owner influence.

Since you said you haven't been going out too much, is it possible to start doing crating games and getting him used to the crate without forcing him into for long periods? Like feeding him in the open crate, etc. for a while before shutting him into it?

Hes attacked Layla randomly a few times they stay seperated. Ive tried him in a bathroom that the floor space is equal to his size crate and he flipped out BAD after 2 weeks which is why we havent went with a crate. We are really worried he will REALLY hurt himself thankfully he hasnt yet somehow. It MIGHT work if I crate him in the living room.

I think creates are more den like to dogs than even a small room. Even with a small floor plan, I think a room feels more "open". I'd crate him..using the enclosed plastic type, rather than a wire one.

Is he getting enough exercise? Bloodhounds seem like lazy porch dogs, but they really are dogs that need a good deal of exercise.

If he is randomly lashing out aggressively and is having issues every 2-3 weeks on a schedule, I would recommend a vet visit just to make sure all is in order. And I usually don't recommend a vet visit! But those two things combined, for some reason, are raising a red flag in my brain to something possible being wrong with him. How old is he? Neutered? I'm sorry if I'm missing information you've already shared about him... I'm new

But if the issue does turn out to be only behavioural, a crate is a good try. If you get a plastic one, I would like to suggest - from experience - to put the crate door against a wall. Broken canine teeth from trying to rip off the door are not fun!

oh yeah....if the acting out is every 2-3 weeks and has no correlation with anything else (like Connor coming to visit? Jeremy's work schedule changing? Anything like that?), it could be biochemical, something with thyroid, blood sugar, etc.
