If your dog is prone to destructive behavior around the house when you're not around, there are some steps you can take to get him to become a well-mannered pooch:
1. When you are home, make sure that you do spend time interacting with your dog.
2. When you can, take your dog out of the house for a change of pace and exercise. He may enjoy walks or heading out on errands with you.
3. When you're not around, leave some doggy treats around the house for your dog to find.
4. If no one is home, leave the television or radio on. The sounds of a human voice will help reduce the monotony and loneliness.
