I've recently build kennels in my back garden because 5 dogs in the house was getting to much with 4 kids too, all the dogs are brill in them except Binx (racing bred whippet) he howls/whines non stop and just won't settle no matter what I do, he's not on his own he shares with Zak (grew, which he has a bond with most) and the 3 girls are in the other one right next to the boys,
the kennels are roomy and the runs are very spacious too, they have been in them for 1 month now and Binx is still a nightmare, and the people next door are complaining now, they have loads of toys to play with and go out twice a day for a walk, I've tryed brining Binx back into the house but he still howls and it's driving me MAD!
these are the things I've tried so far, telling him to shut up, spraying him with a water gun, giving him raw bones, pigs ears etc, ignoring him, taking him for 2 massive 4 hour walks to tire him out over 4 days, making a loud noise every time he starts, (which is every ten mins 24/7), bringing him and Zak back indoors, and now I'm out of idea's and slowly going out of my mind!!!
it's all night too, anyone got any other suggestions please!
and I know he's been in the house since a puppy but so have the rest and I've not heard them once, it's just Binx I don't want to re-home him but if I get an offical complaint I'll have to look into it

he's 2 and 1/2 years old, castrated, no bitches on heat, will go and get some DAP spray see if that works, not to keen on the inhibitor collars though, but if it comes to it I'll try it, I'll try anything at the moment!
will the collars work even though he's not barking? just whining and howling?
keep the advise coming though please

I'll deffo give it a go if the DAP spray doesn't work, and I'll take your advise and not get the citrus one, thanks very much for the help

Molly, yeah he's had a full M.O.T 3 weeks ago when he went for his nails trimmed (I can do all the rest my self but Binx is such a baby) vet's said he's very healthy, and at the time said that he would get used to being in the kennels and settle down, how wrong were they!
lets hope this collar will do the job, before I get evicted for his constant howling!
