My girlfriend has a year old beagle that sleeps with her. We don't live together so when I come over he sleeps right in between us. So I have tried to put him in his kennel but all he does is bark and cry. We have a bark collar that we put on him and that works for about 4 hours but then is crying and barking again so she goes and gets him and brings him into bed with us. This is really starting to p** me off and want it to stop. The bad thing is, the dog is very stubborn. We put him in his kennel one night at her parents, he barked and cried for around 2 hours. So finally she went and got him cause we didnt want to keep everyone awake in the house all night! So I am taking suggestions on how to keep him in his kennel all night without barking.Thanks Fanatics!!
I have the same problem with my dauchshund and my husband. I had wanted to keep the dogs in the kennel when we got the dauchshund, but she whinned within the first 2 minutes of turning out the lights and she's been sleeping on the bed ever since. Luckily she's nearly as happy at the foot of the bed as she is between us, so it's not horrible, but she does get in the way quite often.
Our other dog is content to spend most of the night in a doggy bed on the floor, but jumps on and off the bed whenever he feels the need to be close/have some distance.
Our dog wanted to stay in our room also. But with 2 little kids I wanted him in the back entry way. What worked best was when we watched my parents dog that slept in their entry way. Put both of them back there and he was okay with it.
When we watched my inlaws dog, it wanted to sleep in our room. Put it with our dog and after about 4 times barking the first night, she was fine. Of course, when she barked I would use a spray bottle and shoot her with water. Dogs are pretty smart and she caught on.
