crying and barking

by Terry
(London)

I have an eleven year old jack russel that has always slept quite happily in our utility room with the door shut at night, I went away with work for a month and my wife got woken constantly at night with patch crying and barking.since my return for weeks ago nothing has changed, he whimpers, barks, jumps up and down and chews the door frame all night. We've tried ignoring him punishing him, being nice to him, our last idea was to remove the door and replace it with a baby gate so he didn't feel shut in but that gate wasn't made for chewing dogs and will not make a third night . We are at our meltdown through lack of sleep what can we do, during the day he has also become quite needy.
