Sorry for so many questions...Boxers are just unique I guess, I own my home, but am in a park type setting. All the neighbors have dogs that bark at all hours of the night, but I seem to be the one that the grounds manager loves to focus on :roll: . I tried to go run an errand, and prepared an entire room for Bubba, complete with blankets, bed, air conditioning, animal planet, bones, toys, etc...yea, that didn't work..the minute I shut my door and started my car, he went to high pitched barking, then howling, then barking, crying, howling, etc. So loud I could hear him all the way around the front entrance by the road. (about 1 large city block). So I turned around, came back home, and sat out front for about 5 minutes to see if he'd quit on his own..no such luck. He has not been crated ever, and as scared as he is I'm kinda afraid he'd destroy the crate or hurt himself trying to. Letting him have full run of the house does not work, either. So I have been taking him everywhere with me, and waiting on hubby to get home to go to a store...I don't want to try the no bark collars, I've heard they are cruel..any ideas??
