ive tried just about everything with my dog and just cant get him to learn not to jump on people or tear up the sprinklers in the yard and whatever else he can find. he has tons of toys, most of which he destroys in the first few minutes of me giving them. So, the other day i made a huge dog run for him. Its about 30yrds long by about 9ft wide and he has a small pool in there, and an abundant amount of fresh water and water misters and shade and shelter and a dog house..He just keeps crying and howling at nites and in the mrning...I only put him in there when im not at home and he isnt in the house. its gotten to the point where my neighbors have started to complain. Im thinking a training collar would do well so when he start to cry and howl i can 'shock' him? any thoughts? its either that or i have to give him up and I dont want to do that at all.
