Any suggestions 2yr old outta control

Im having problems with my 2yr old american stans named pancake. I adopted him when he was 10 months from the shelter. His had his problems just like everyother dog but, within the past 6 months he has gotten out of control. Nothing has changed in the home. He has started barking and growling at every thing and anything that moves, he is peeing and pooing all over my house. He recently picked up the idea that its okay to pee on my friends that he has known his entire life. and eating anything and i mean anything whole socks, furntire you name it! he is fixed,shots every yr, perfect weight, gets treats, toys, a backyard to run around in.He is very loved and gets the affiction that he needs.He is also crated when im at work. I cant take it anymore.Im not going to get rid of him thats the coward thing to do. He knows im the alpha and it has been est.since day one. He has gotten out of control and im about to have a nevrous break down.Does anybody have any suggestion?

Physical exercise (lots of it) and mental stimulation. Set up a spring pole or make a flirt pole for him to play with. There are puzzle type dog toys you can buy and fill with treats and they have to figure out how to get them out. Or fill a kong with peanut butter and freeze it to give him something to keep him occupied.

You may also want to consult a behaviorist if wearing him out physically and mentally doesn't help calm him down.

^ THAT! Exercise exercise exercise!!! Buy a treadmill and set his ass to work. Also consult with a trainer a real one, not some petsmart kid!

Hello sarrz90,

My first suggestion would be to take Pancake to the vet and explain the change of behavior to eliminate the possibility of something being physically or chemically wrong. If that all checks out fine my next suggestion would be exercise. Being crated while your at work means he needs to burn off pent up energy when he gets out. He needs a hour or better walk. If you own a treadmill get him on it and tire him out.
Really, let your vet check him out, the peeing and pooing all over your house could be indicative of a diet or health problem.

Please post back and let us know how he is doing.

Joe

To me, this isn't something I'd head straight to the vet for. It sounds like the dog is just bored. When dogs get bored they get distructive. These breeds are very high drive and require a lot of exercise and training. As said above look into different things such as spring pole, flirt pole, and puzzles to keep the mind occupied.

Yeah get a dog walker maybe to come half way through the crating time to walk him and tire him out big time. As far as the peeing and pooing in the house I would get to a vet. Being destructive isn't the same thing as reverse potty training but I'm no expert. Lots of mental and physical stimulation help.

Is he neutered? That could help calm him down and get his energy level a little less (still needs lots of play and exercise but less frustration at least for my boy)

Great advice. (I'm taking notes as I read!)

So yesterday I stopped at Home Depot for some supplies and made Shadow his first flirt pole. It's been a while since I've used one (prob 15 yrs) but it went together quickly and on the cheap!
He loves it! He learned quickly and was eager to continue. We played with it for only about 5 mins to start and I kept it low so as not to make him jump yet. Each time he captured his toy, he was praise and would release when asked - ready to chase again! We played with it again later yesterday evening. Some much needed release of energy for my pup!

Getting a dog neutered doesn't make their drive and energy level decrease, it may in some cases but neutering isn't the cure all for behavioral problems like a lot of people think it will be. I've been there with Dosia. Getting him neutered did nothing to curb his bad behaviors. It was when I started stepping up and doing a lot more with him and really getting him into a good routine with training and exercise. Then he was not being a destructive little bastard lol. Oh man he was such a bad little puppy he did so much damage to the yard, and killed so many plants lol. I've never seen a dog just grab plants by the stock and rip them out of the ground like that before.

Haha too much! I can see I am in for it with my little Shadow. Lots of energy and when he doesn't get that energy out I see the little devilish behaviors arise.

Absolutely.
Silas gets walked 5 miles a few times a week, along with hard play sessions and I'm trying to get him interested in flirt pole or spring pole. We'll also be starting weight pulling! Great activity for these dogs.
Kora is still a pup but she has even more energy. She gets shorter walks, flirt pole, and a bike run once a week (since she's still growing a little) and will weight pull also.
If I just let them go to their own devices in the yard with no added exercise...well my house would no longer be standing lol
