Need to crate 6 yr. old adult rescue coonhound at night AND while we're away?
redbone coonhound rescued when he was 6mo about 6 yrs ago. I took him to playgroups,training, daycare and a walker. He's very good with us and with the kids (they are 1 and 3). He took to some training really well and some other training has been impossible (leash walking). He's dog aggressive and gets stressed about it. We do walk him less but I'm home more (I now work part time). Goes out in the backyard about 6-8 X daily at least). He barks to come in almost immediately. He hates going out in rain.
We've had on and off pee/poop issues. We crate trained initially, then gave him larger increments of roaming. We're back to crating him while we're gone (stressed barking out window; counter surfs, rummages).
He will occasionally pee on stuff (our bed which he sleeps on; the couch and the carpeted stairs). Then he's good for awhile. He's neutered, goes to the vet regularly and each time we've had pee troubles. At wits end. Husband wants to night crate but that's alot of crating
