Hello there.We are trying to get our new little 3 month old pup to get used to being left alone for periods of time in his run outside.
He has a kennel and quite a large area that is safe and secure for him. We have made sure that he has his breakfast out there in the mornings so he gets into a kind of routine for when I go to work.
He however has not taken to it very well as yet and will sit and bark and howl. Although we have only had him for a few days, I wanted to make it as traumatic-free as possible and do the right thing from the start. He will be in there for about 3 hours while we are working and then as and when necessary i.e when going shopping/ gym etc. Please could you advise?
Many thanks JoFrom Anna@love-springer-spaniels.com
Have you tried the anti-barking collars? barking is a really difficult thing to stop, my George is terrible at barking when people come to the door, but I do know people have had some successes with the barking collars.
