can you offer to take the dog for a walk? At least he would get some exercise and play time with you. Maybe if you show an interest, and talk it over, with your father. it can be worked out. good luck

I agree with the above answers. Another suggestion would be if you and your dad could take your dog for obedience training. Something you both could do together with your dog. Good luck.

How long is the dog crated. There is nothing wrong with crating. Dogs are den animals. My dog loves her crate and its her safe and secure place to chill out. Somedays I must crate her for long hours. I feel fine knowing she is safe I do get up earlier and go for a long walk. If she is crated for more than 6 hours my friend lets her out for some play time. Hore a dog walker to break up the day. I would suggest some chew toys and a hanging toy in the crate to tug on. Also plenty of exercise before and after you crate him.
