I have a 1 1/2 year old lab who CANT be trusted alone. I feel terrible that I have to lock him in a kennel during the day but he leaves me no other choice. You name it, he has chewed it or destoyed it. I really don't know what to do anymore. Any advice?

Ok here we go. Most dogs were born to run is what I have always heard. Most dogs need jobs. Walking at least 45 min. aday. Stimulation, socializing is what dogs need.They are pack animals. I started a doggy day care at my home for dogs that are having to be home alone a lot. My fee is very cheap for a fun filled day. I love dogs and need company...lol Also I need the exercise.! Its also a great home based job! I take up to 10 dogs a day. It's like a day care for fur babies. All my babies go home, tired, happy, and fed. Guess what I trying to say is that if you have a dog that is misbehaving, you must provide the work it takes to have a happy dog. Training, commitment, and devotion. The bottom line is to get the right help. Ck around your local dog parks for play mates , walks and fun if you can't have them in a doggy day care. Take the time to have a happy dogs.
