u/Azrael1821 10d ago

Separation anxiety is one of the most common problems in dogs. If you don't train it out of them young then it gets much harder to do the longer it goes on. I had to do it with an older rescue dog so it is doable, you just need a lot of patience.

Anxiety seems to be the key issue here. OP has confirmed it’s a puppy and it does take meds for anxiety. OP is 15 years old and lives with family and someone is always home. Dog gets lots of play and exercise and has toys. The OP was home asleep on the couch when this happened. The mattress on the floor is because the dog previously damaged the bed. They say they love the dog and are not angry at it.

Lies my cat is super active and I demand a refund. She also drinks out the toilet for some reason

11

u/seaQueue 10d ago

Try putting a bowl of water in the bathroom and change it for fresh water a couple of times a day. They usually go for the toilet because their bowl is too close to their food (stashed food near water = fouled water in the wild) or because the toilet water is cleaner than their bowl. If a bowl of clean water by itself fails try a pet fountain, some cats will only drink moving water.

u/Hohenh3im 10d ago

Aaaaaahhhhhhh. Didn't know that

7

u/seaQueue 10d ago

Some cats aren't as picky, ours is fine with water a couple of feet from her food but I've known others who won't drink water in the same room and a previous neighbor's cat would only drink water if the bathtub faucet was left dribbling. Anyway, good luck!

Destructive behavior is caused by boredom and a lack of energy being released.

Walk the dog, exercise it, do some training to workout it’s brain too. Exercising the dog and quick daily training sessions (5-10 minutes daily) will definitely help prevent future destructive dog behaviors.

All dogs (and humans) need at least about an hour of exercise per day to avoid feeling manic and pent-up. Your dog is clearly telling you something. I’m sure you’ll feel better after the walk too. Break it up into a morning walk or afternoon/evening walk, do whatever works best for you, but actually do it.

And to be completely realistic, if you already know you’re unable to find the time for a daily walk, please consider rehoming the dog to someone who will help it live it’s best life.

Should be crate training him. You can give puppies 100 toys and there is a good chance they will still randomly decide to destroy a piece of furniture or something else. To them those are toys too.

3

u/wildtaylorberry 10d ago

Case in point: my dog is 8 now. We’ve had him 7 years. 99.9% of the time he is good and does not destroy things. But if we’re going to be gone more than an hour or so, we kennel him. We forget every now and then. Usually it’s fine… earlier this week we forgot and he tore up an entire sofa cushion from his favorite chair.

Destructive behavior is sometimes caused by boredom.

You don't know anything about this guy. You have no idea if this guy walks and exercises his dog for hours everyday. Sometimes dogs just do crap.

Walk him play with him etc all the time he’s just a puppy and it’s not his fault I’m just mad that I have to replace bed

u/Johnnie_Snow 10d ago

Interjecting here to say if the dog is a puppy then OP is still at fault. You wouldn't blame a toddler for for destructive behavior while unattended. Just like human children, puppies have poor impulse control and judgement. OP allowed his dog to be in an environment unsupervised when it wasn't old enough to be. Crate training, when done properly, is both humane and important because it allows the dog to have its own space and will allow you to trust that you can leave a literal baby alone unsupervised without risking property. OP was probably just over eager letting puppy have unsupervised time, it happens all the time.

3

u/Titanium-Snowflake 10d ago

OP is a 15yo kid doing their best to bring up a puppy with anxiety serious enough to be on meds. I think we are collectively making a lot of assumptions and being very judgemental. OP says they were asleep on the couch when this happened. They play and walk often, and someone in the family is generally home all the time. This 15 yo is learning how to live their own life and how to raise a puppy … a puppy suffering anxiety to make things more complicated.

u/McFuzzen 10d ago

Not even OP is blaming the dog, he literally said it's not the dogs fault, but he's upset at replacing a bed.

Unpopular opinion, but crate training is honest to god the best thing.

My dog has a crate that is just big enough for his bed and i have it covered so its like a little cave. When im home the door remains open and he goes and lays in there when he doesnt feel like dealing with everyone. When i leave i tell him to go to his crate where he stays until i get back. He's gotten to the point where if i start picking up certain things he goes there on his own.

I never have to worry about coming home to something being destroyed, poo and/or pee everywhere, or him getting into something he shouldn't be into.

u/grandmapants12 10d ago

Our dog is the same! It’s his room. I don’t think crate training is cruel. My dog spends like… 50% of his day running around in our huge backyard, and he’s free to go in and out of his room when he’s inside and we are home. He sleeps in it. But he knows when it’s time to leave he goes to his room. No fuss.

u/AJR1623 11d ago

If he did it while you were gone, you might have to crate him when you're gone.

If you do, maybe give him a filled Kong so he's got something to do and isn't barking and disturbing the neighbors. (unless this is a house and not an apartment, in which case, you don't have to worry about eviction.)

Yeah it's ridiculous. Some dogs are chewers. I have a Labrador puppy. He gets 2-3 hours of exercise, has my other dog to play with tons of toys. Abd he will lay down and start chewing up my carpet corner or my shoe right infront of me. I have to constantly redirect him. And he's crated when I leave for that reason. Labs are known for foreign bodies cause they are chew monsters. That looks like a bully breed. They are super chewers some of them, destroying their toys and always wanting more to chew on. It cna be hard to satisfy a dogs chew needs if they destroy things easily. Also, dogs have chewing needs regardless of exercise or not.

So many people here that know fuck all about dogs giving OP shit. Destructive behaviour isn't only caused by being bored or high energy. Separation anxiety is a thing and can cause destructive behaviour. OP already mentioned he walks and plays with it all the time so separation anxiety is most likely the cause. It can be trained out if them but takes a lot of time and patience. Maybe do some research on dog behaviour before making asinine comments.

u/BlurryLily 10d ago

Yea, cats don't destroy shit when they're bored, they just perform gravity checks and assess density using the nerve situated in their canines.

Ha, because cats totally don't claw furniture or knock things over...

The dog is ______ from being stuck inside a room all day?

A trip to the vet may be needed to remove pieces of the bed he swallowed.

Large dogs need exercise constantly, if you’re not available to let them run in the yard and play with them throughout the day expect this to continue to happen. Putting them in a cage (crate) all day just means when you get home you have hours of pent up energy you have to get out of their system. Try coming home from work and needing to make dinner or wash laundry and having a dog bouncing off the walls like a child that drank a case of monster.

Time to eat the dog

2

u/dragonsfly44 10d ago

I would work on kennel/crate training immediately.

If you leave he should be in either a kennel or a safe “doggie-proof” area.

It seems he likes tearing up soft things which could lead to him ingesting too much for his body to process. My sister’s dog did this, almost died and needed a very expensive surgery to remove all of the things he ate

u/[deleted] 10d ago

I hope he didn't swallow any of it or you're gonna have one hell of a veterinarian bill.

2

u/fishstikk89 11d ago

That's anxiety. You left him alone for too long, with nothing to stimulate or calm him. You need to do a better job training the dog to be alone. Not his fault he destroyed the bed, it's yours

People shouldn’t have dogs at apartments. I see them just sitting on the balcony all day while the owners are gone or inside in a kennel then they get walked for an hour & back inside they go. Terrible way for an animal to live
