I have a 4 months cow dog / bird dog mix. She is overly excited and gets totally out of control. We got her at 6 weeks and started leaving her alone from the start to avoid separation anxiety. However, when ever we leave the house or momma comes home or she sees my son in law, she totally loses it and she starts in with this loud, high pitched whine. Momma has to go into the closed bedroom to get dressed and put on her shoes, or the dog keeps climbing on her. When she, or me, leaves the house, she attacks the door and lets out with that high pitched whine. She does quickly quiet after we leave. Last night my son in law came over and she set in. We placed her in her crate and eventually had to cover it with a sheet. Smokey then quieted down. She just gets out of control and is almost impossible to calm her down. Momma can do it somewhat, but she starts in almost before you can praise her for being quiet. They took her for an hour walk, came home and she started in again. She is not happy until she is climbing over Momma or Tony.
