My Son's Springer is destroying my house!
My son has a English Springer about the same age as my pup. Approx 10 months. So he doesn't have to be crated every day he brings him to my house to play with my two dogs. One is 3 the other 10 months. We have a huge fenced in area and a dog door where they can go in and out as they want. I close the celler door when I leave so they can only be in the celler or outside. Which is finished off. He has been destroying our furniture. Of course as soon as he has a piece long enough to play tug of war with, my pup joins in. I give them plenty of toys and chewy bones. If I close the gate so they can't come in the house he barks non stop. Now that colder weather is coming I won't be able to shut the gate. My Springer and black lab never chew anything up or very rarely bark. I'm almost to the point of telling my son to keep his dog home. What can I do to stop this behavior. On weekends he gets all excited in the morning because he thinks he's coming to grammie's house. So we know he likes being here. If I visit them he thinks he's coming with me. I should mention he was breed more for hunting and my was bred more for showing. I say he is a dog who has ADHD times 10. He never stops moving. Help what do I do?
