Default Help! I can't take it anymore!

Here I am again! about Teddy! - he is destroying my porch and everything on it just int he time I give them to go out and do their business. I know its because he needs more exercise but I don't know what else I can do! Its been raining here and I can't walk them and when I do its only half a mile and its not enough for him. Ginger seems ok with it but he gets into all kinds of trouble. Today was the last strar! my daughter got a package - a big box that fed ex put on my porch because of the rain - and I let them out for a few minutes and when I let them in the box was ripped open - all the stuff all over and one of her gifts torn and ripped!

Does anyone know of someone in the NY are that would take him and walk him? I dont want to just take him to the pound - he needs an active life style! Please help if you can. I made a flyer to put up at the vet. I will try to attach it here.

I would love to take your dog running, I wish I could help. I feel an impulse to offer to take him, but I think that would likely be a mistake on my part as I already have one spoo, and a terrier.

Have you thought about getting a treadmill? I see them for free or dirt cheap on kijiji & Craigslist all the time. I am thinking about getting one myself, normally I slowly convert to going to a gym in the winter (I am too clumsy for outdoor running in the winter!).

How big is he?

When the weather is bad and I can't take Lexi out like she is used to, we play bear in the house. I sit in the living room and throw Lexi's stuffed bear across the living room and down the hall. She will chase or catch and it goes on and on. We play at least thirty minuets in the morning and again at night. Then after we play bear, I will put something in her Kong and that will keep her busy for about an hour and a half. This seems to help with the energy on bad weather days. On days that we are all gone for most of the day, which is not often, I use a doggy day care. Good luck.

There is absolutely NO SHAME WHATSOEVER if you truly feel the need to rehome Teddy. It can in fact be the ultimate kindness. I don't know if you got him from a breeder, if so, the breeder might be willing to take him back. You might contact the local Poodle Club of America rescue group to get their advice and help.

Affiliate Clubs, PCA Member Breeders and Poodle Rescue Contacts

In the meantime, is there a dog walker you might hire, or a responsible high school or college student who could exercise Teddy for modest pay? Could you put him in doggy day care a few days a week?

I'm sorry for the stress, and distress, both you and Teddy are feeling. I understand you're distraught. Things will get better. There is a solution, and you will find it! If you need more help in trying to locate a reliable rescue, please feel free to PM me.

Have you tried getting dog toys that make him have to work, and think about how to get the treat out of it? They have some new ones out. Not the same old ones, new, they make the dog think. Wish you were up in my area , I would love to have him. So sorry.

My Mpoo girl was destructive when left alone too. Got into everything, including a small jar ofVasoline. Didn't have potty problems for a few days.

I bought a basket muzzle for her, only put on when we were gone. She could pant and drink, but not destroy anything. I took my time, a few months. I wasn't gone all that much either. It worked . She lived to 15 1/2.
