Epic.That's what I'm talking about, if you start a debate with jesi she throws those pup pictures at you and then you melt and she always wins. It just ain't fair.
OKAY, i have to say she explained she'd be starting work again.I don't care if she takes my advice or not, honestly. I told her there was lots of good advice on here.
I'm not sure what my questioning the idea of getting a dog when no one is working proves except concern for the dog's well being. If you can't afford a vet, you can't afford a dog. But as I already said, she explained why and I see no problem with it. I do think you should have money set aside, but oh well. Not sure how that impacts the other part of my post.
Pretty sure the thread isn't about me, guys. It's about the dog. If you have a problem with my "attitude", report it. The moderators have no problem editing and deleting my posts.
i've had dogs that do this. What i found that worked for me was when he/she was quiet, didnt dig,bark whine, i'd reward that behavior(i do the same thing when getting a dog used to confinement in any room using a gate). I also put a dark blanket over the crate too, it made the dogs i had more comfy.The reason I felt it necessary to sleep near the beagle is that he was clawing his crate so frantically, I was afraid he'd catch a claw in the wires and tear it. Our older dog tore a claw once, which required surgery to repair, and I didn't want this dog to do the same thing. I also didn't want to add to his separation anxiety by traumatizing him, after he was "leashed on" to us all day, by then banishing him to another room. He is doing better now, however.
