my moms adopted 2 year old shih tzu wont stop barking at night when sleeping in separate quarters.

by cassy
(toronto, ontario)

This adopted 2 year old shih tzu had the roam of the house, slept on the owners bed and was leashless to go potty.

Now my elderly mom is getting fed up. the dog goes out and runs around back yard. pottys but when it comes to night time doesnt like to be crated (plastic crate) and barks to be let out of crate. But when it sleeps on pillow gets up and plays and poops.

What can we do? This dog was extremely spoiled, we want to have best care for it but are training it to be crated. how long does it usually take? a week? 2 weeks?

please we need ur help. This dog used to be abused by its previous owner, so we are careful around it, but it doesnt seem to know its loved ...it retaliates at night.

please hlp.

night time behaviour

It can take a long time for the dog to get used to the crate & he may never do so as he is not used to it.

try putting in one of your old tee shirts in the crate so he feels secure.

I do believe that once a dog has been abused, it can take years for them to undo the behaviours.

I had one like that & I did crate him at night & it took quite awhile for him to get used to the crate,although eventually he did.
