I wrote in to the Dog Whisperer almost a year ago about Kane's issues hoping for some help. I am a total fan of Cesar and watch his show every day and I spent many nights thinking of how I could covertly snatch up Daddy from him and keep him for myself. But anyway, our big problem is that Kane does all of these things when we leave, not while we're at home so how are we supposed to address it effectively? I've never seen a Dog Whisperer episode where he addresses this type of problem. Obviously, I never heard anything back from the people at the Dog Whisperer so since this is getting so out of hand I've decided to start a Twitter campaign to try and get Cesar to help save my dog. We desperately need his help.
Kane's always had severe behavioral issues and severe separation anxiety issues but now he's having big time jealousy issues with the baby and constantly marking in the nursery, he's pooping in the nursery. Lately he's been pooping in our room, on our clothes, and he's been jumping the gate and getting into bags and bags of dog food in the kitchen and then marking various things around the house. This is the tip of the iceburg of Kane's issues, but like I said they are amplifying exponentially. We've tried everything, every type of dog training that we know how and it's not doing a thing. We've tried discipline, positive reinforcement, etc. The odd thing is that it's only Kane behaving this way our other 2 dogs don't do anything at all.
Kane is obviously the Alpha male of the 2 males and 1 female that we have, and he acts accordingly. He is protective, dominant, but also extremely sensitive and is great at playing guilt trips on you with those yellow eyes. He is sneaky in every sense of the word. He is obedient, as all of our dogs are, they follow commands and act promptly when instructed so it's not that he doesn't understand good and bad behavior. It's clear that he fully comprehends what he's doing because he cowars in the corner the second we walk in the house which is our clue that he's done something. He knows that he's being bad but doesn't care.
Crating him is not an option, I would love to test any dog product out there that can stand up to Kane! We've tried the plastic crates, he eats his way out of them. We've tried metal crates, he bends them apart and escapes. We welded metal rods to the metal crate to reinforce the strength, he managed to still get out. If we lock him in a room he'll dig up the carpet and destroy the door. Put him outside, he hops our 6 foot fence with ease. So... what are the options?? As you can see I can't think of any, so I'm begging for Cesar's help.
