We are practicing leaving her alone now so she can get use to it when we go back to work. Over the wknd, we've left her alone for an hour a few times a day and she acted up a bit but calmed down. We've also walked out of the room and come back and she has been fine. We thought we were good. This week, we thought we'd go work outside of the home at Starbucks and then come back every 2-3 hours to walk her. She barks up a storm and cries and it is soo sad. We have plenty of toys for her but she isn't have any of them right now. Will it take a few weeks, days etc for her to get use to this? We spoke to our dog trainer and she was fine with our approach. We will be having a dog walker come a few times a day. Our dog trainer suggested buying dap infuser (something like that). It suppose to put fermones (?) in the air so it acts like her mother. She said it works for 2 out of 3 dogs. Any other ideas? Thanks!
