German Shepherd Whines When Left In Kennel

By Pei Grigg

Dear Mr. Katz:

I have a six month old German Shepherd named Thor. Having study your book, I applied your tactics to him and he responded extremely quickly, to my surprise!

He’s fairly very good at a sit-stay and down-stay now, which is really, extremely helpful. I do have a single dilemma that I couldn’t repair with him although.

Here are the circumstances and also the issue:

Thor lives outdoors in a dog kennel/pen factor, I stroll him every day and play ball with him and usually be sure he has food and water, I brush him and I invest plenty of time with him. But whenever I leave him, he sits and whines for half an hour! He just won’t be quiet! And if I go back out to create him cease, as soon as he sees me, he’s quiet… but as soon as I leave, he starts whining and barking again, so I just ignore him, however it has gotten to become such an issue that the neighbors have began to complain about it. I do not make a large deal out of leaving him or anything. I just say ‘Bye Thor’ and leave.

Can you help? Christina Hathaway

Dear Christina:

Welcome to the fantastic globe of German Shepherd ownership.

Here’s what you’ll be able to try:

1. Wait till he genuinely begins whining and barking loudly. Then make use of the Bridging technique as described within the book (No, NO, No) and go back and correct him with all the collar. Leave the pinch collar on, but keep the tab with you. Hook the tab around the collar, appropriate the dog, then take the tab off and stroll away. Please note that you will also want to later practice putting the tab around the dog, feeding him a cookie, then taking the tab off, so that the dog doesn’t come to associate wearing a tab having a correction.

2. If Tip #1 does not function, choose a time when your neighbors are away. Ignore the dog. Wait until he lastly settles down and is quiet… then wait another two minutes. Go back for the dog and let him out. Your objective is to teach the dog that being quiet will get him what he wants.

3. Basically ignore him. Sooner or later he will learn that this behavior will not product the outcomes he desires, but it could take a few weeks. Also, enhance his every day workout regimen, substantially. You might also experiment with changing his dog meals.

Different factors work for various dogs in terms of this behavior. Regrettably, there is no quick cure-all.

That’s all for now, folks! Adam.
