Hi all, Desperately in need of advice with my dog. He’s a beagle x whippet and he’s got a history and a personality. I rescued him with my ex from a puppy farm and he was well trained, but when we split I left him with the ex so he could stay in his home. Then I found out he’d Been neglecting the dog, so I effectively re-rescued him. When I got him back he wasn’t the same. He is Destructive and semi-aggressive. I can’t have any pillows or soft things because they won’t survive, he’s not great with people - he’s just an ******* basically. Never leaving them alone, scratching, jumping etc. He’ll never bite but he’s very teeth-y if you get what I’m saying. And all he does is howl when he doesn’t get his way. He refuses to be toilet trained. I can’t have soft things around as they’ll be destroyed but he has no interest in dog related things like toys, kongs etc. He’s not treat, food or attention motivated. I’ve had 3 different dog trainers out to work with him. He’s exercised twice a day. i’ve Had him Neutered. I’ve even got a new job where I work less days to lessen the time he’s alone but there is literally nothing I can do. I’m stuck, and I’m at wits end. I can’t have friends over, he’s the reason another relationship ended cause I chose the dog over the douche who asked me to chose (I don’t regret that part, just the way the dog behaved with him). The fact that he’ll openly destroy thing around me even when I’m at home so I can’t even put it down to separation anxiety is breaking my heart. I don’t want to give up on him but I can’t keep living this way. 3 dog trainers, every technique in the book and on the web won’t work. At what point do I admit defeat?
