My dog Riley is 6 months old and he is a great dog. His flaw is that when I leave he becomes bored and destructive. He gets into the trash, or pulls things off the shelves and destroys them, whatever he can find and feels like chewing up. I live in a very small studio apartment and I have absolutely NO room for a crate. I go to class for about 3-4 hours a day 4 days a week. He is not anxious when I go, he just gets curious and bored without people and gets into things he shouldn't. He never tries to chew anything but his toys when I'm around. I have hollow bones which I fill with peanut butter and he has plenty of toys. He also pees and poops when I'm not home, which he never does while I'm there. I'm wondering what I can do to solve this problem. Any suggestions? I have seen alot of information about separation anxiety but not alot about boredom. Thanks everyone!
