Niki and I were hunting all last week. I'd deer hunt in the mornings/evenings then take her hunting during the mid day..
My problem was when she was left alone in the camper in her cage/kennel she'd "go nuts" She totally detroyed the plastic tray in her cage and started eating through the foam on my camper cushions through the 2 X 2 squares in the cage.. My buddy who camped near me told me that she'carry on and bark and howl all the while I was gone.. I replaced the plastic tray with 1/2" plywood and she ate a hole through it as well the next day...
She always has been fine and still is at home.. We can go away to work and leave her in her cage without any problems.. I know she wanted to go hunting and am sure she was mad and upset that I'd leave without her..
She's crate trained and hasn't had any issue until this past week.. It was out "first" week long trip.. Which by the way she learned a lot and had a great time hunting grouse.
Any suggestions??? Ignore it, perhaps she'll eventually get used to it etc?? We were in the middle of "no where" last week.. I'm concerned if we ever have to stay in a camp ground with other campers are near by this behavior would result in some upset people...
Before you take her out again, try working with her in your camper at the house. She needs to learn that you are coming back and she doesn't always get her way. What List suggested is a good idea as after playing hard in the morning and eating dogs will generally sack out for a while which would be a good time to leave her. However, before you go on your next trip try it at home, Leaving her in the camper, and only stay a way for a short while (go somewhere where you can at least hear her). Go back and let her out, but only if she is quiet (I wouldn't make a big deal about letting her out asit is just routine). Then try again later, gradually increasing the time you are away. Eventually you should get to where you can leave her in the camper and it is no big deal.
