  1. Just an update. Tried baby gate and Milo was equally stressed in that environment. No real changes compared to the crate. Also, he has actually started voluntarily going in his crate sometimes. I think his behavior appears to be improving. When we leave him alone, he doesn't poop anymore and only pees a little compared to how it was. I'm hoping that his behavior will continue to improve as he adjusts to our daily routine. We've only had him for about 2 weeks, so everything is still very new.
  2. Thanks for the responses, everyone. They have been very helpful. Today I was gone for about 2 hours and came home to a mess in the crate. He peed and destroyed all of the blankets, etc that were inside the crate. Another weird thing I have noticed... If I give him a kong outside of his crate, he plays with it and eats the treats inside. If I give him a kong in his crate, he won't touch it. I think we are going to try the baby gate method and see how that goes. The next few weeks I have quite a bit of free time, so I am hoping we find a method that works well for us.
  3. Hello, I have had my new greyhound for about a week now, and am trying to figure out what is best for him when we leave for work. We leave around 8:00 am, someone will return at lunch to walk him/potty break, and then we are home by 4:00 at the latest. Have tried crating him, but he hates the crate. He generally uses the bathroom in his crate if we leave. I am worried about him injuring himself while trying to escape his crate. I am not opposed to letting him out of the crate during the day, but I am worried about destructive behaviors. He has peed inside the house once. Any thoughts are welcome. Thanks in advance.
