    Default Barking constantly

    Every morning when I leave for work or in general just leave the house, my wife and kids say my 10 year old bulldog constantly barks and walks the house until I get home. I rescued him three or four years ago, and here the past few years he does this....why?

    He love and trusts you.
    I leave my clothes and shoes for brosco to lay on if I leave and he can't come with me. Maybe more I inner action with kids and spouse. He probably has trust issues but trusts you... Hope he isn't in arthritic pain Brosco has it in his joints already and he is younger than your bully

    Sounds like separation anxiety. How do you say goodbye in the morning? I usually don't acknowledge that I am leaving but do leave a treat ball with food sometimes so he doesn't pay attention to me leaving. I also leave on the radio sometimes. When I get home I ignore him for 5 minutes unless he has to go potty.

    agree -- sounds like some separation issues --- as others suggested, leave an old t-shirt with him or a treat ball or peanut butter bone to keep him occupied while you are gone -- it should help

    Are you the main care giver? How foes he interact with other family members? Do they play walk or feed him?

    He is master of the house, if it bothers your spouse and kids, Then the spouse and kids should leave, let the bully be master of his domain. You'll both be happier in the long run. 😎

    (I'm joking for those offended)
