I have had my girl for 2 days now and she is seperated from mom, bros/sis and 2 other dogs. She was fine when my bf's 3 y.o. dog was with her the first night but last night she was up every hour crying like someone was killing her. I have her in an open crate in the bathroom with a baby gate in the door opening so she can wander in and out of the crate. I know it is seperation anxiety but mom needs her sleep. How long does this phase usually last? Should I put her back with my bf's dog or just let her be until she works it out on her own first. I would hate for her to not be able to be alone and howl and cry all night long unless there is another dog/human around. I tried moving her closer to me by putting her in my bathroom off the bedroom, that way she can hear me at least. It didn't work either. I also put t-shirts, toys, blankets in the bed with her. She does the same if I put her outside and walk away for a minute or two, she starts howling and whining. Any info would be appreciated on whether to let her be or pair her up with bf's dog????
