Clawing and tearing up doors

I can't leave my female outside or locked in my bedroom without her clawing up the door or chewing on it. How do I get her to stop? I don't want to have to cage her when I leave or have company over. It has nothing to do with exercise, it seems that she has seperation anxiety

Kenneling her is probably the best. Our blue heeler lab mix has separation anxiety also. And she would go and dump out the trash can and shred it. My husband(before I met him) had put her in a room but she chewed up the door and ripped up carpet.

Both of mine get kenneled anytime we are gone. It's really not bad for them. Cain goes in willingly if I walk in the room and at bed time. Putting them in there is a good place to for them to rest up. She's not going to stop tearing the things up if she's left out. How long are you normally gone?

I understand. Our blue heeler knows how to bust out of her kennels so getting her used to it was rough. But I got tired of poop in the house from her shredding and eating trash. Being gone 8-5 isn't bad. From my experience with a separation anxiety dog, it never stopped. Sheba stopped the trash shredding for all of 2 days when we moved into our house. Then it came right back. Kennel training her(to finally stay in it haha!) was a wonderful decision. It helps when we do one on one training with them and when it's time to use the flirt pole outside. And I don't have to worry about coming home to trash everywhere, her hurting herself from a can or something, or poop all over the floor. I highly recommend it to you.

Well it's not even when I'm gone, I can let her out to go potty or to just play outside for a bit so I can relax and it's like an I modiste reaction with her to start taring up the door. Or when I have ppl over I gate them up in the kitchen and as soon as I leave the kitchen here she comes flying over it. It's like she's glued to my hip lol she literally has to b with me 24/7 she does the same thing if I go outside without her, she immediately starts clawing and chewing the door lol

Sounds like something you're gonna have to work with her on. I'm sure others can give you other ideas also for it. When people come over you can crate so nothing happens. Are they put up because they're overly people friendly? (Like my 2 haha) because if that's the case there are ways to work with them to calm them for when guest come to your home. Have you looked in the training section to see if anyone else is having similar issues? My only freak out if I go outside without. Then they just cry haha.

before locking her up in a room have you tired her out? Treadmill or a few miles fast walking? Then I would try to give her a kong filled with something frozen to last a while. My guess why she immediately starts being destructive is because you keep going to let correct her, which gives her the impression in order to get your attention she needs to tear up a room. Sounds like you need to get a crate to save her from eating anything too bad and from your house being destroyed. You will have the same issue in a crate but its contained and you can work on it more. Start by making her feel good about going in, without closing the door. Lots of praise and treats and love. Then you need to put her in and wait her out. Try covering her crate, or my boy hated his against the wall, he liked to see all around him. Try a radio on if she doesn't like it. Maybe its the not seeing people and thinking everyone is off having fun and she needs to be involved. A crate will allow you to have her inside while you and your friends are around. Don't ever let her out until she has calmed down. Check on freecycle or craigslist for some used crates.

I have a crate, she vets in it and try's digging out of the cage, like I said it doesn't matter how much exercise she gets she still does it. And as for the long ball I tried that too and she destroyed it in and hour. I can't give her anything when I'm gone anyways bcuz she won't chew on it, she just tares up the door.

And no I lock them in the kitchen bcuz when ppl come over they run to the door barking and growling. But she also gets hyper when they r both inside. So I keep them confined to a smaller space to keep her from running and jumping on and off the walls lol bcuz my male pit hates it when she gets hyper cuz he's so laid back. It's funny cuz she slept all day long bfor I got him

I dont know what you mean about the long ball. Look like you ave to start over from scratch, do you open the door or the crate when she is still worked up? or do you make sure to wait her out EVERY single time?
