I’m having the same problem and you seem to know what you’re talking about — but what exactly about the Thundershirt helps them? Is it just the snug, secure feeling more or less? Something like that, it’s like swaddling a baby or being wrapped in a blanket. It works great on some dogs but can be not effective at all for others. For my pup, he went from chewing through the Cool Siberian Husky I Hear You I’m Just Not Listenin T-Shirt blinds and eating everything paper or cardboard he could find to sleeping on his bed under the table when I left. We got her a princess costume a few months ago (we live in New Orleans, so it’s not too uncommon for her to be dressed up). It is a “shirt” that Velcros around her neck and chest. She seems to be pretty happy with it.

I’ll look into a Thundershirt. Is that a permanent solution, or something that can be weaned off? You bet, try it in combination with DAP, a blanket over the crate, classical music, etc. these things can all help a little and putting them all together can help even more. Good luck! How much is she being walked? You have an incredibly high energy mix there. I would reckon 1-2 hours minimum of fairly intensive stuff should be a start if you aren’t doing it already. It makes sense to the dog that since she is tired she should sleep. Depending where you live it might be worth getting her a harness and some kind of cart to pull that you can add weights to (or you sitting in it) Cool Siberian Husky I Hear You I’m Just Not Listenin T-Shirt so she tires faster and is also doing a job. So it also tires her mentally in a way that a run the dog park wouldn’t.

I think you need to keep up with the crate training, get a sturdy one with a metal base and make it a good place to be. Feed her in there, water in there, put peanut butter/cream cheese on the bars that she can lick off and start back to basics. It sounds like you have been doing all the right things you just haven’t quite given it long enough yet, she is still a young dog and already has a problem so its going to be a slow uphill battle.

Good call on the neighbors. After an altercation on the porch at 1am a few weeks ago, I decided I needed to get her a pass to the local dog park. It’s big, fenced in, and regularly maintained.
