Hello. I have a black lab/wire-haired pointer that is a few days away from being a year old. He is friendly, incredibly cute, and very affectionate. The only problem is, he cannot be alone. He hates being kenneled, and he reacts very poorly to it. We gave up on the kennels, because on numerous occasions, he breaks out. When he is in a kennel, it takes him only a few seconds to start drooling and whining. On top of that, he starting destroying anything he can find. I understand that he exhibits multiple symptoms of separation anxiety, and we have tried multiple things to get him over it. We tried the Thunder Shirt, which he tore apart. The kennel doesn't work, because he always seems to find a way to break it down. We're looking for some way to keep him calm, so that he can be happier when we're gone, and so that the house stays intact. Any advice is really appreciated. Thanks!
