My golden, Murphy, will be a year on Saturday. The problem is he will only relax when he is in his kennel. There are only two speeds: full and asleep. I can't leave him unattended for more than 5 minutes or he destroys things. When he's out of his crate he's either wrestling out other dog or playing fetch non-stop, and knocking my toddler over daily. Once a friend was watching him overnight and he wouldn't sleep, just panted all night, even though he was exhausted (he didn't have the crate). How do I get him to chill out? I would love to be able to enjoy him but the constant moving and panting stresses my husband out and he ends up going in the crate more than he should. Don't know if this is related or not but he produces an incredible amount of saliva. After about three times fetching, the ball is saturated and will get anything it touches soaked. Thanks in advance!
