Help with my puppy

my puppy is about 8 months old and is about the most out of control and bad dog I've ever seen. I know puppy's usually take off and stuff but he's really bad and we can't seem to train him, we try putting him in a kennel when he's bad but we got him from a shelter and he screams like he's being tortured when he's in there (so we take him out because we can't stand it) I really like him and wanna keep him but my dad will probably murder him (not serious) or give him away and I don't want that. please help

Make sure your kennel is just the right size for him to just turn around and sit or lay down in because anything else makes puppies uncomfatorble, also try covering the kennel and leaving a toy in there with him to keep him occupied. Just make sure you get across to him that it's YOUR house, not his and you're in control

You have to train him.

By your example with the kennel ... you give in to him, so he has learned that HE is the "alpha" of your pack (family).

We've had leave him in for a while like an hour or so. But he's really loud, you can hear him out side and my neighbours have even come to see of he's ok

Put a blanket over the crate so it's dark sometimes that makes them calmer :)

If you put a blanket over the crate it might and should make him quieter and calmer :) hope it helped

How many times per day and for how long each time do you walk the dog.

We try to walk him everyday but you can't really because he's a terrible being walked

The only way he'll get good at is it is to keep doing it.
