Hound Anxiety!!!!!!

Yesterday my boyfriend and I adopted a loving, sweet, mostly well-behaved rescue hound (Basset/Beagle cross). He doesn't want to let us out of his sight, and definitely doesn't want us to leave the house. We know about long-term separation anxiety training, but what do we do in the short-term so we can actually leave the house together once in a while? [more inside]

How to un-crate-train a puppy

~1 year old Labradoodle name of Twist. Good boy. Crate trained up to this point, house trained so long as we lock him in his crate overnight. Which is the issue. I'd like to start weaning him off of the crate. He seems ready, he has no trouble holding it all night in the crate and it's not like he's rushing for the door in the morning; he'll happily romp around the house while we're getting breakfast etc together. But when I've tried leaving the crate door open overnight he, well, chooses not to wait until morning. Looking for strategies to let him know that that's not okay. [more inside]

How long is too long for my dog to be in his crate?

What is the maximum duration a dog can be left alone in his locked crate? I've been maxing it out at 3 hours (and I still feel terrible) and wondering if on the odd occasion I can push that to 4 or 5 or if that's really not a nice thing to do. [more inside]

Help our broken dog sleep

Our dog goes through cycles of at first liking a crate and then not tolerating it at all--whining, scratching, growling, and moaning. When Sparky's unhappy, nobody sleeps. I'm out of ideas and I'm looking for new things to try. [more inside]

Barbaric Yawp

We have a reactive, defensive dog that can be barky during car rides. She is quieter if she's in a crated in the back of the van with a blanket over it. But my husband has been allowing her freedom in the car, claiming she only barks a few times each trip. I think that a few times is too many times, and that she should continue to be crated during trips unless she gets to the point where she stops reacting to stuff outside the car. [more inside]

Soft-sided dog crate for large elderly dog? Will my dog be safe?

Who has used a soft-sided dog crate for a large dog? Will it provide secure confinement for short periods? We are moving from NJ to the west coast. Our elderly dog is too frail to travel by air, so we will drive a 6-day road trip. For the road trip, I need a portable crate that will stow in our car trunk. We need the crate to set up in motel rooms. I want dog to have his "den". We do not plan to leave him alone, but there could be situations where he has to be kept confined for his safety.

Un-crate our dog?

I have a bichon frise/shih tzu mix dog named Beatrix who is a little over 1 year old. She is crate trained and has no problem with going into the crate when my husband leaves for work. She spends no more than 5 hours in the crate a day while we are at work. Next week my husband's work hours will be changing and this will mean that Beatrix will be at home for 8 hours alone while we are at work. Unfortunately we cannot afford to hire a dog walker. We are thinking about leaving her out of the crate since it seems like a significantly longer time to keep her cooped up. Is this the best thing to do? If so, how should we go about it? [more inside]

Litterbox issue when traveling by car with cat

I am getting ready to move 1000 miles with my cat. I have a crate for him, and a litter box to travel with. But I'm concerned about when he might have to use it during the trip because I would like to keep him in the crate (as recommended by just about everyone I've talked to.) Is it ok to have him in the crate for 8 hours and give him occasional food and water and then let him use his litterbox when we arrive at our destination each night? Around the house he often goes that long without using his litterbox...but I'm just not sure if that will be ok. [more inside]

Crate and Barrel Plates

We are considering buying Martinique Yellow dinnerware from Crate and Barrel. Some friends told us that they were less than impressed with the durability of Crate and Barrel plates. Obviously, the quality will differ from product to product, but if you have Crate and Barrel dinnerware, please tell me what you think about the quality.
