    General Dog Forum
    Hello, I've got a 4 month old cavalier puppy that I'm worried about leaving all day. Currently my signification other was working nights, and I worked day shifts - so typically the pup was never left alone. (It worked perfectly) Sadly things have changed, and my S.O. is moving across the...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi all! I've had my 4 year old boston terrier, Mimi, for a couple of months now, and she has been adjusting pretty well (we've had a few issues, but have seen awesome improvement!)

    Dog Health Questions
    Hello. I have a black lab/wire-haired pointer that is a few days away from being a year old. He is friendly, incredibly cute, and very affectionate. The only problem is, he cannot be alone. He hates being kenneled, and he reacts very poorly to it. We gave up on the kennels, because on numerous...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello! I adopted Olli about a month ago. Olli is a 10 year old beagle/chihuahua mix. From what I'm told, he was recently turned into a shelter because his family couldn't take care of him anymore. When we are together, I never hear a peep from him. Maybe some mild crying, but nothing...
  6. A love story and major help needed

    Dog Training Forum
    A little over a year ago I rescued a beautiful whippet mix from a local organization. She was about 4 years old and had severe emotional issues. When I first met her and saw how timid she was I knew that I had to bring her home. When she first came she was heavily medicated and the long term...

  9. Puppy crying when left alone

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi, My partner and I have recently got a puppy. She's 10 weeks old now and we've had her from 7 weeks. The first few nights she would cry quite a bit at night when we put her in her crate, but after looking it up online it seems no more than can be expected from a young puppy. Thankfully she...

  12. Home Alone

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello everyone, I know there are many threads of leaving your dog alone, many about separation anxiety. My dog (an Icelandic Sheepdog, 9 months old) does not have separation anxiety - we have ruled this out since we have taped him, and he basically falls asleep the whole time we are not home...
  13. Crying and barking dogs

    Dog Training Forum
    I started a different thread because this is an entirely different problem... Yuma is crate trained, and until about a week ago was pretty quiet in the room his crate is in (unless Lucy gets excited when someone comes in the door and he can hear her jumping around like crazy). Lucy was in a...

    Dog Training Forum
    Mattie is my 8.5 year old mutt from PACA. She has always been labeled a major sufferer of separation anxiety by family, friends, and vets. It has always been a problem. She's older, so she has a history that I may as well tell. I have had her since she was 5 months old. She was born under a...
  18. Training techniques for separation anxiety?

    General Dog Forum
    So, we've had my tibetan spaniel mix for about 2 years now, she's now at age 4. When we got her in 2008, she showed signs of severe separation anxiety right off the bat. Unfortunately, we didn't do much to correct it at the time, as we both worked night shift and had to leave her alone in the...
