Hi All, I don’t really know go for assistance, so hope you folks can help. Our Neighbour has a Jack Russell, which is very boisterous. Since Mid Feb, when his partner left, he has had to leave the dog in the house whilst he goes to work, however the problem is that he leaves at 05:30 and about 10 mins after he leaves, he starts howling and barking until we leave for work at 08:00, so you can imagine we don’t get much sleep. We’ve spoken to him and he’s so far been to see his local vet to see what he can do, to which the vet suggested to give him the snip, which should calm him down, but it hasn’t done the trick. We’ve since learnt that keeping him in somewhere secure would make him feel more secure, as I believe Jack Russell’s need company all the time. Of late, he has been left in the kitchen with enough food and water and the means to relieve himself, should he need to and has been fine, but as the summer is coming, he’s let him out into the rest of the house, as the heat is building up (windows are left open for him) he can find a cool spot there, which I appreciate. I really don’t know what we or he can do now, as it’s becoming a real nightmare, so much so that my partner wants to move house. We’ve heard of an electric collar which gives him a tiny shock when he barks, but I’m against that. Is there anything you can suggest which could help us out here? Thanks for your assistance.
