I have an 11 months old female husky, she has a lot of energy and she’s very sweet. We took a training class and she did very well but lately she started destroying things in the house when we leave, she’ll hop on the counter to get a cereal box or on the desk to grab any paper that’s laying there.
She started this behavior about 2 months ago. We decided she couldn’t be left loose in the house when no one was there when she destroyed the christmas tree so we took out her crate. She used the crate when she was smaller and potty training and she hated it she would pee in her crate and cry all day.
She doesn’t like it either now. She’ll howl and cry to get out and when I get home and get her out she’s always covered wet from either pee or saliva from howling a lot but I don’t know which. She also hurts herself trying to destroy the cage.
She’s a dog that gets a lot of outside time when we are home and she’s a very good dog when there’s people around but her behavior is starting to be problematic for us because we can’t let her loose in the house and for her because she stresses a lot in her cage and hurts herself.
Any trick or opinion is welcome either on how she can stop destroying everything or how she can accept her cage as her safe place and stop stressing when we leave her in it.
