Kennel issue?

Recommended Posts

I am recently having problems with my 7 month old British Lab. When we crate her during the day she will go in the crate just fine and sit down but then when we come home (6 hours at the most) she will have very damp bedding and she will immediatly run to the water dish and drink the whole thing. Last night I put her in the kennel before I headed out for dinner and took all of the bedding out. Just to see if it was pee. When I came back there was liquid / drool on the sides of the kennel on the bottom on the top. Just small droplets of it though. It was not Pee and could have been drool. I then took her out and her all of her paws were wet almost like she had jumped into a bath tub of water up. I am just wondering if anyone else had heard this of happening or not. I am going to video tape her tonight and see what the heck she is doing. Any ideas or bets out there?

I think that she might just be getting worked up and drooling then shaking her head. If this is the case how do I correct this?

Other then this small issue she is a great dog. Very easy to train and very calm temperment.

Any information or advice would be great

Thanks in advance for any info

Is it too hot where the crate is? By a heater vent, window where the sun is shinning on her? Too much bedding in the crate! These are things too check!

Many dogs will drool when they get nervous. Could be seperation anxity?

I was wondering about this. Any pointers on how to get rid of this issue? I might have to do a little homework tonight with my training book I think that there was a section on this. She does like to be around people all the time and she doesn't have any issues when she is not in the cage.

The room that she is in is fairly cold (65) so I dont think that she is overheating,

Thanks

I have read places, probably on here, that putting one of your old t-shirts or blankets in there will help. I tried it and my lab stopped whining at night when she was 4-5 months old.

I totally agree with gonefishin... I have a chocolate lab and when she was young I had her outside and I could hear her whining from inside the house. I tried putting my old T shirt in the kennel and it worked like a charm. If your situation is anything like separation anxiety, I think that this technique would work well.

I too have a British Lab,he is 10. He has allergies and to relieve the itching he licks his paws.My dog sleeps on a dog bed and when I get home from work there are wet spots on the bed.

Well after video taping my dog tonight while I was gone for a hour. I can tell that she just hates her kennel. She would just stand and bark for the first 50 minutes she then layed down and took it easy for a little while. Either way I guess I need to train her better for the kennel. Does anyone have any ideas for this? I am thinking put her in there when I am home for short stints for 15 minutes or so then work up from there. Any ideas are welcome.

Thanks

    • If things in there were actually a bargain they might’ve moved more stuff.  I’ve picked up a couple things there but not more than 5-10% of the times I’ve visited it.   The pricing coupled with the “as is” , no returns policy kept me a bit gun shy of making it a viable source of gear.
    • At least you’re settling for three strikes and you’re out!   Tough start but at least you know now and have a chance to rebound in some way.  Hopefully you can at least get that late season hunt on the “old” property.  Always tough when the permission starts fading after working and and getting to know a good property.
    • Looks like severe heartburn to me!😄
    • As stated for the above reasons....I totally agree.  I can tell you this much, I also hunt late into the season if I am not tagged out, and I loosen my sling more so my thick gloves will slide through it and I can grip my bow.  I have always shot with one, so i can't speak to shooting without one.  I get a piece of mind having it that I can relax my grip and now worry about the bow "jumping" out of my hand,
    • Antsy?  That would be an understatement.  I got out bow hunting 1 time last year due to the job I was working at the time.  That job is history and am now working a job that will allow me to hunt as much as I used to.  Last month has been pretty much a disaster.......the land that we hunt on, first when we went in to kill the areas for the food plot, the guy running the sprayer decided it would be a good idea to put Roundup on the clover plot I put in last year.  It was thick and awesome and I could tell the deer were just hammering it.  Mostly does and fawns, couple small bucks, but hey, when the does need a man, he usually shows up.  Needless to say, I was a little upset when this happened.  Almost lost it when the guy got done spraying the plot and then drove over to me and said "I killed that plot, we should plant a clover or chicory plot there".  Just shook my head and walked away.  Strike one......then about 2 weeks ago the owner of the property informed us that we would no longer be able to bow hunt on his land.  Only muzzleloader, and that's only if they are completely tagged out by then.  STRIKE TWO........so I just planted over 200 dollars worth of seed in food plots that I may never even get to hunt over.  STRIKE THREE!!!!   So now I am in scramble mode to try and find some private land to hunt or start getting out to scout public land in hopes to find a good spot.  All i can do is make the best out of it and hopefully things work out the best.  Either way.....I'm going to up a tree somewhere and totally loving the experience of sitting in the woods with mother nature, with a huge smile on my face!!!!
