    Default So Who's having the separation anxiety??

    I think I need my own "Human" trainer. Go ahead guys, give it to me straight- am I being ridiculous about leaving Bogey? I just can't leave him for more than an hour at a time! I left him this morning to run some errands and could not get back fast enough! This probably is not good for him, right?
    i am fortunate to be able to be home with him all day, so he naps out of the crate, but occasionally heads in on his own, but the door stays open. I have no problems with him at night going there and closing the door.
    Should I be crating him at different times of the day and leaving the house to get him used to being left alone? I think I have more separation anxiety than he does!
    can pups get too dependent on their human companions?
    set me straight, I can take it!!!
    Thanks, Mary

    I can't say anything either! I am lucky enough to stay home being a full time student and I don't leave Lola for very long and when I do the whole time im gone I wonder if she is ok!

    I'm with you and the others, being a student I'm home most of the time! And when I have to run errands I usually wait till someone gets home or make sure I'm only gone an hour or so. I hate leaving them home alone, although I'm sure they don't mind too much since they just sleep cuddled up together! I think we all might have separation anxiety LOL!

    You can buy a camera and setup in your house to watch him when you are not home. I am asking the webcam as my xmas gift!!! You can even get an app on your phone and watch him in there.

    It's always hard to leave our babies... I have no social life but going to the dog park. If I could avoid coming to work I would probably do so but I have no option

    My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies,
    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.

    It does do them good to get them used to being left alone for a little while, and I would say for now put him in his crate when you are gone, just to make sure he doesn't get into something that may harm him. Buddy is the only one we can leave out because now that he is older, he doesn't bother anything, the girls on the other hand, can not be trusted, so in their crates they go when we are not home.

    Default Re: So Who's having the separation anxiety??

    @mer55 I am sooooooo guilty of this! Penelope is 8 1/2 months old now and rarely alone. Yesterday she was alone for 3 hours, the longest ever and there was much preparation on my part so I wouldn't be anxious about her. We took her to a bulldog meet up and she ran and played for 90 minutes. Then the little baby had a bubble bath, and when she was finally asleep, the family went out to watch The Hobbit in a theatre about 3 minutes from home. I'm quite sure by the state of her crate (our master suite) she was asleep the entire time we were gone. She has been home more than 6 months now and I have a hard time leaving her.

    Hee hee - I seem to remember asking you if you were ready for the holidays as you weren't going to be able to leave home. You are so not alone!

    That's why I have 3 dogs. Bulldog, Corgi and small mixed. I can leave her alone and not worry about her. Of course, if she were the only dog I would be the one having separation issues. . .

    Amber is home all day long with the cats and run of the front part of the house. My son checks on her and my husband takes her to the office several times a week (the judges just love Amber and would have her in court daily if they could) but mostly she is at home hanging out on the sofa. She is always in the window when we get home waiting on us. We open the door and the race is on; she is jumping around and happy to see us.

    I'm not one to talk either. I've found myself daydreaming about not having to work, just so I could stay home with Miss Muffin.

    @dalmatina38 - It's so wonderful that Amber can go to work with your husband sometimes...and to the courthouse too! So cute!

    I'm contemplating adopting a cat to keep Miss Muffin company during the day...still thinking though...
