Best K9 High Anxiety Dogs Management Tool

Best Way to manage High Anxiety dogs

Find out how you can get control of your high anxiety dog 

High Anxiety dogs will keep you on your toes. 10 minutes after you put your dog in his crate and leave for work, he escapes. He proceeds to treat your house as his own demolition derby. This is what happens when your escape artist high anxiety dog is not kept in the strongest of heavy-duty dog crates.

Protect your High Anxiety Dog while protecting your property

This is such a win-win idea and so easy to do too. A heavy-duty dog crate will not only protect your property inside and out it will protect your dog as well. There are things left out on counters in our homes that can kill a dog or at least become the cause for expensive surgery.

Has this ever happened to you?

We’ve probably already heard your story before. You can easily imagine that after 10 plus years offering heavy duty dog crates to dog owners with separation anxiety and noise phobic dogs, I’ve heard some stories!

Separation Anxiety dog destroys favorite chairThere’s nothing more gut-wrenching than arriving home to find your home looking as if it has been vandalized. But no, it wasn’t vandals. It was your ever so loveable angelic big strong escape artist Houdini dog that escaped his crate once again.

If you’re lucky, there is a mess in the kitchen where he turned the trash can over. There’s a couple of your favorite shoes chewed into a shape that is unrecognizable except only to a sci-fi writer. Toys everywhere, an awful odor coming from your bedroom, and the story goes on. And, this is “if you’re lucky.”

If you aren’t so lucky, you arrive home to an awful smell when you first open the door. You find a sad, guilty and sick canine staring at you with that “I didn’t mean to do it” look on his face. It’s true. He couldn’t help himself.

Are You Feeling Lucky?

Sample of damage from escape artist.There is trash everywhere, but worse, he found some medication you left of the kitchen counter. Now there are green puddles of doggie vomit everywhere from what could be a very sick dog. You call the Vet, rush right over and you can fill in the blanks from there. There are so many possibilities of what you may find upon arriving home when you have a separation anxiety or noise phobic dog. None of it is good.

With a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach you know it’s not going to end well. But, after a couple of hours at the Vet’s office, you are told that if you had gotten him in 30 minutes later, it would have been too late. As a dog owner, you know when you have a high anxiety dog. Get help now. There’s no mistaking high anxiety behavior. It doesn’t just go away one day in the future. Most dogs with separation anxiety just live with it for the rest of their lives.

What to do for your high anxiety escape artist

You are at your wit’s end.  How do you prevent this from ever happening again. He just escaped his third crate. The first was a simple wire crate. It took him two days to figure out that he could escape. The next one was a stronger wire crate. It took him 3 days to escape that crate. Then you turned to a big beautiful plastic dog crate. They look so strong, don’t they? After just a few days he either popped the wire door off or lacking the ability to pop the door, he proceeded to chew through the plastic wall. It only took him three days to accomplish that.

And despite hiring a dog trainer, purchasing new crates, and even locking him in the basement, all the plastic ties, the chains around the crate, nothing seems to work.

You could board him out for 8 hours a day, but that is expensive. Set up a routine where you come home at lunch each day and walk him, but that won’t always be possible. What if you hired a neighbor to check on him a couple of times a day and take him outside to do his business, but can you trust the neighbor to do the job plus that can be expensive too.

The big problem with these approaches is that they are quite often impossible to maintain. You feel awful when they don’t succeed.

The fact is, very few on these potential solutions ever work, if any. The medication didn’t work, plus who wants to dumb down their dog every day. The daily boarding or dog sitter idea is expensive. You have already tried the strongest crates available from your local pet stores. It has become mentally and emotionally challenging.

Don’t Give Up on Your High Anxiety Dog

A truly heavy duty dog crate will contain your dog from the time you put him into it to the time you arrive back home. Think about it: You come home for lunch or from work, and for the first time, your dog is right where you left him this morning, guaranteed!

He hasn’t chewed anything. No furniture has been destroyed. There are no new holes in the wall or patches of carpet removed at the front door. He hasn’t gotten into any of your medication. Your dog is there, in his heavy duty dog crate, waiting for you to release him so he can give you long-awaited doggie hugs and kisses.

Let me be clear about this

Dog owners look to us to provide the best and latest designs in heavy-duty dog crates for their strong dogs with canine separation anxiety.

There are many reasons why you should have and use our aluminum heavy duty dog crates, but I won’t go over each one here. I would refer you to our heavy-duty dog crate page where you can see each crate up close and read about all the brilliant features these beautiful crates bring to your home.

Introducing your High Anxiety Escape Artist dog to the new crate

Let’s take a look at how to introduce your dog to his new heavy duty crate. Do not put your dog in his new dog crate and leave home for hours. Introduce your dog to his crate, slowly allowing him to be confined for a few minutes, then come home and check on him, let him out. Repeat this procedure leaving him in the crate longer each time. This probably means using the weekend to make the introduction.

The design of these heavy-duty crates has been reported to cause high anxiety dogs to relax quicker. The fact that these crates allow your dog to see a full 360 degrees helps them to relax and settle faster than they might in other more closed in crate designs.

Just remember that one of these heavy-duty dog crates is far less expensive than a new couch, a large doggie dental bill, or any of the dozens of other negative possibilities that can occur when a separation anxiety dog is left to his creativity in the wrong dog crate.

Imagine coming home to a relaxed dog eagerly awaiting the opportunity to be with you. You can now exhale when you see your dog in his crate right where you left him.

  1. Hello Andrea, Thank you for your comment. I’m not sure what you are saying exactly when you say “hand them off.” They were already handed off. That’s why they were adopted from a shelter. After almost 6 years in the heavy duty crate business I can assure you that 99.9% of separation anxiety dogs are shelter dogs. Crates are a way to not only protect property but protect the dog. Adopted shelter dogs are rarely puppies. I firmly agree that love, caring and affection will raise a wonderful dog and in most cases free of anxiety.

  2. Thank you for your response Bill. To clarify I mean people will go to shelters and get a dog without enough knowledge on what it may take to nurture and love an animal from a shelter and I think it’s important to be informed before making this big decision because a lot of times people will end up getting frustrated with a dog that perhaps has separation anxiety and end up getting rid of the dog. i.e. like a foster child who get’s passed around to too many homes. It will have a profound effect on the innocent child. Just as it will with the innocent dog. So do your research.

  3. Wow, that would be a lot easier than the traditional carriers with screws. I could have used that over a week ago. Breaks down a lot easier.

  4. Actually, Midwest has since the Ovation crates available as well, the new doors on them are designed to avoid most great escapes
