How do I stop my dogs from intake my furniture?
I have two dogs ages 1 and 2. One is a golden retriever and one is a hound and they have gotten into the annoying and expensive habit of intake furniture and taking things like tupperware, gloves, socks, newspapers, etc. into the backyard when my husband and I are gone or sleeping. I don't know what to do anymore. They are driving me crazy and I love them to death but it's getting somewhat out of control. They have all the toys they could possibly want and they can jump in and out of the house as they please because they have a dog door but nothing seem to work. The dogs also know what they are doing is wrong. I can tell the minute I get home whether they've done something bad because they won't even look at me let alone come over to greet me but if they hold been good they are so excited to see me. I love my dogs they are the sweetest most obedient dogs when we're at domestic and I can't imagine my life without them but I don't know how much more of this I can whip! Please help!
Crate or kennel when you aren't home. Can't imagine having dogs I can't trust while I'm absent. I have five of them, and none of them cause problems. They have a dog door and own freedom when we are gone. Sounds like a training problem. Contact your local kennel club and have them recommend a good trainer contained by your local area.
That's why God invented crates.
They need to be exercised and stimulated to hold them tired so they dont have the urge to chew.
If you can not be there to supervise your dogs need to be surrounded by crates to keep them from destroying your home.
Speak to a trainer, or go read some books on crate training- This is the exact type of point it's meant for.
how about feeding them well and bring back some dog toys for your pet to bite? guess the 2 dogs must be puppy or still in growing up stage, which they need to bite something. if any way still don't work, then please lock the dogs OR lock your furniture. Cheer !
