Hi, I came to this forum in the hope to get some help.
I live in Asia and we apparantly no dog trainers anywhere.
We got 2 dogs, a labrador and a who knows what kind of mixes of breeds.
Both about same age, labrador behaves well.
The other one listens only he is in your sight.
If you leave him alone outside for an hour he will destroy everything.
He will jump to get clothes from the washlines and chew on it.
He found a sponge and ripped it apart(he eats very tidy as he chews extremely well, unlike the labrador..).
He seems to have seperation anxiety perhaps.
He can't control himself from exitement.
If we left the house for an hour for groceries for example and come back he will scream the whole street together.
It's not barking but like high pitched janking? (Sorry for my bad English as it's secondary language).
Besides that he will pee a little everywhere.
I hope to get some information on how to treat him so he will not pee him self when he get so exciting.
Also to get him stop making the janking, squeeling or whatever sound it is when he not gets what he wants.

Like for example we try to train him to sit and wait on command and that goes well but if he gets to excited he will wiggle little little to where he has to wait and squeel/jank alot.
It's like almost he can talk...

He also barks at everything(he will bark even at leaves who fall from the tree but that's something can handle).

Hope someone has some advice and sorry for my bad english.
I never speak English and it's school taught English.
Thanks for any advice in advance and ofcourse free to ask any questions.
Kind regards

Firstly dont worry about your English its better than many who have it as a first language..!

Maybe a training program like this could help..It helped me when I had a dog who did similar things to yours.
Sorry I dont have a magic wand that can cure but training really is the only way to go.

Thank you. Yeah we don't go out that much really so that can be managed as have a crate.
Where we live have only k9 army training school who learn commands but not like western world they going to teach what you want or help with stuff like this apparantly.
Since you dutch he squeeling(janken lijkt het wel) alot if he doesn't get what he wants?
He only 8 months now.
The peeing is a bit anoying sometimes so for these 2 things i just hope to get a training or some things to know how to train him on it.
We work from home and he can be with us all the time it's ok.
If go out for groceries put him in the crate.
Seems we can just never let him be alone.

A clever friend of mine has a very noisy dog, so she trained it to carry a soft toy around on command. It can still make some noises with a toy in its mouth, but not at nearly the same volume. Here's a little video clip on how to get started teaching a dog to hold a toy:

8 months is a hard age in terms of destructiveness and energy level - the dog has nearly adult physical capacity but a hyperactive goofy puppy brain. I suspect if you manage the situation by using a crate and not allowing him access to things he can easily destroy, you will find that six months from now the problem is much reduced. At that age my mom's golden retriever (who eventually grew up to be the nicest, mellowest dog ever) chewed up an entire sofa when left unattended for less than half an hour.

Your English is fine, by the way, totally understandable.

I'm reading your post to mean the problem with him peeing is when he gets excited, he leaks. If that's not the case, ignore the rest of this post.

Some young dogs pee when they're excited. It's a nervous reaction sort of thing and beyond their control. Most dogs grow out of it, so you do your ordinary house training, and try to allow for it until they mature past it.

It's hard to remember exactly, but one of my current dogs did it, and I think while it was less and less a problem by the time she was a year old, it didn't completely disappear until more like 18 months. She's a nervous type, which it sounds like your dog is too.

When I say allow for it, I mean try to get the dog in a situation where you won't have to clean up if it happens. So if you're having visitors and know that will cause it, let the dog meet the visitors outside. Minimize anything that starts the excitement as much as you can except outdoors. Give praise in a calm, quiet voice.
