whining when out of site.
  • My pup is 15 weeks and a great dog. He rarely barks and doesn't growl. Plays well with other dogs, cats, buuny, ect. The only time he does bark excessivly is when left alone or when i go out of site. Any suggestions?

    Is he left in a kennel when this happens? It sounds like separation anxiety

    I bought a heartbeat pillow on Amazon and that really helped ours be calm when left alone.

    There's a lot of threads dealing with separation anxiety in the Socialization, Fear, & Anxiety category. Here's one that would help:

    I would suggest getting one of these and seeing if it helps. If it doesn't, amazon will take it back for a refund. But this is the one I used for Tang and it was a life saver.
