Hey everyone, I have been gone for awhile but now I am back and ready to have a breakdown. My sweet little basset is no longer sweet, he is very naughty. I am so frustrated with his behaviour problems and the fact that I have not been able to fix them, I have another dog so its not like I am unfamiliar with this. I have tried the recommendations from this forum but they are not working. I have even resorted to using a bark collar on him which has worked to a point, he won't bark when its on he'll wait unitl its off, stinker. He is chewing on the actual carpet, brand new carpet and has put little runs in it. He has eaten three dog beds two of which were stellas. I am wondering if some of this is because we haven't been spending as much time with him. I hate to say it but I have a hard time spending any time with him because he gets on my nerves. If I try to pet him at all my other dog will come over, she is very patient, she'll wait her turn, he gets so jealous and attacks her. I can't give the cats attention because he has taken to chaseing them and he is so intrusive with his nose he jambs it up they're butts. He whines incessantley, and there is no identifiable reason he just went to the bathroom, I am sure it is because he is in his crate but he can't be let out unsupervised, he has eaten a few pairs of my shoes, he eats more cat poop than can possibly be healthy. we are trying to keep them away from it but so far have been unsuccessful. I would play fetch or take him for a walk but he is on restrictions because of his leg. And fetch means him barking and attacking stella for running at the ball, even though if you play with just him he won't go get it, he just doesn't want stella to have it. His potty training isn't too bad but as soon as you close the door he is scratching at the screen door, put a rip in it. My other dog can't have a bone or anything else because he'll throw a tantrum. I know all the answers to these questions but I have been so unsuccesful as of yet. Its not like he's hard to train he already can sit, stay and leave it. He is just so needy. I am sorry for ranting but it breaks my heart to feel this way about an animal. I understand that he is only 9 months old so I just keep hoping some of this will grow out of him.
