I'm concerned you didn't do your homework before getting your dog. If you are freaking out because of him barking then ask about what you should feed him, I'm very concerned. Not to rag on you, but to let all other board members know... "Get your facts before getting your dog!" This is a living, breathing, fearing baby you have in your hands! Why not start with telling us what you're feeding this pup...?

Also I believe you said he sleeps in a crate at night. I assume he whines when he goes in there. the worst thing you can do is let him out when he cries. That only reinforces his thinking that "if i fuss she will let me out of here" and then you will never get him to be quiet when you put him in there. My suggestion to get him used to the crate... I don't know if you are home during the day or not but whenever you are home just put him in his crate for a little bit while you are moving around the house cleaning or whatever else. he will fuss... A LOT. Don't even acknowledge him or his behaviour. Completely ignore him. Eventually he will calm down when he realizes that his plan isn't working. He will get tired and stop fussing. Only once he has calmed down and has been quiet for a while then you can let him out. Also when you are going to put him in his crate always give him a treat and a command such as "go into your crate" or something like that put the treat in a close the door. I also used to put a blanket over top of the crate.

i never really had a problem with Teddy barking when no one was near him but perhaps try putting peanut butter in a king or something that will keep your dog busy put it somewhere away from where you are sitting and then when he gets into it try leaving the room. Maybe that will help him realize that just because you aren't right beside him doesn't mean he has to be scared or upset. But I don't know I haven't had to deal with that issue so i could be wrong on this one.

It sounds like he is still adjusting to his new place, that he is bored and he needs to get more exercise. Play with him. It will help you bond and help wear him down so he can sleep.

Is he housetrained yet? Was he living in a crate before? He doesn't HAVE to sleep in the crate you know. He could sleep with the crate door open or with you if you'd like. That would probably make him feel less lonely and afraid.

my dog was like that when i got him too...and he had been crated by the rescue center i got him from...and she told us he was good in his crate...so he just needed to get used to his new home, and now is soooo much better.

the only time he barks is when i put him to bed when he is hyper...i have learned not to do that...when gets in play mode...i walk outta the room...and go brush my teeth or whatever...and when i come back down he is sleeping on the floor. Now all i have to do is open the door (his crate is in another room...and he runs right into his crate and curls up...

we still havent figured out how to solve the problem of a nice barking alarm clock anywhere between 5:30 and 7am....but i dont think thats gonna change anytime soon.


just dont let him get away with things!! its gonna make it much harder for him to do what you want later on, b/c you werent being consistent

I hear you there, with Tips it's every morning the same thing. Boris was the same, he got mostly over it at 5 months and was nice enough to skip the 5am one. Although we were lucky because it was winter, so it wasn't day so early. Once we let him sleep out of the crate in our room, no more problem at all, he's just sleeping until we get up.

I'm not sure I understand. He'll jump all over you when you let him out?

We used a crate for Teddy cause there is just no room on our bed and he would want to be RIGHT in the middle between us lol. I would get poked int he eye by his paw 100 times a night lol. within a couple of days he was well behaved in his crate. now he doesn't even need his crate he just sleeps in his very own room. his crate is still in there but he doesn't have to use it now because he can be trusted to be in the room alone and free now.

I think you should maybe get a few books or read some articles online about how to handle your dog. it will help you a lot
