I have a 3 yr old Labradoodle, who was kenneled most of his life, but I think he has a separation anxiety disorder...everytime I leave and put him in the kennel he breaks out after about 2 to 5 minutes. He doesnt try to break out when I am home just as soon as he knows I leave the house. I have tried music, tv, and nothing seems to help stop him from breaking out. This wouldnt be a problem except I work 8 hours a day about 5 times a week and he needs to be in a kennel so he doesnt mark or destroy anything. Any suggestions on how to get him to stay in the kennel

Honestly I would see if you can confine him to a small room. Being in a kennel 8 hours a day is a very long time. How much exercise does he get a day?

Thanks for all the replies I figured out how he was escaping, and fixed it so I will see how he does tomorrow

Do they have doggie day care centers in the world yet?
Doggie daycare gets expensive, not every dog is suited for doggie daycare, and not everyplace has one convenient

OP- if its a wire crate, you can use the plastic zipties to connect all the portions that would normally disconnect to fold down and then use a carabiner or clip on the latch so he can't lift the latch and slide it.
