She is fine out of the crate but she has to be where you are. She isn't our first dog but its been years since we've had one and never one with separation anxiety. So far today we have fed her breakfast in the crate and left her in for an hour while we went in another room and she was fine just whim...

I ended up sleeping on the floor next to the crate and she was fine with that. I cant fit the crate in my bedroom its too big. I'm going to see if I can pick up a kong today since the nylabone she had didn't seem to help her. I have to make an appointment with my vet so I'm not sure about upping her...

What should I do? (Sep. Anx.)

We adopted a dog today and the rescue told us she has separation anxiety but that it was under control. She is on medication for it and they told us to get a metal crate (not the cheap ones). I fed her dinner and crated her for an hour afterward and she was fine just some whimpers but nothing major....

Is separation anxiety really that hard to deal with? I don't mind having to train our new dog (I plan on it actually) my only issue is if my husband can handle it by himself when I'm at work. I'm pretty lucky that I only work 4 days out of the week then I'm off for 4 days in a row. I've never had a ...

They have her on some kind of medication (she told me but I can't remember what it was). I wasn't very thrilled that the dog was on meds when they came over for the home visit. They also switched crates to a metal one where she used to be in one of the plastic ones with the metal front. She seems to...

Questions about adoption and separation anxiety?

So we've been looking at lots of dogs in order to find the right one for our family. We have narrowed down our search and keep coming back to one female. She is young about a year and a half old and was found wandering the streets before she went into foster care. She came over our house for a home ...

Looking to adopt in Maryland

Hi, I'm looking to adopt a dog in the Baltimore, Maryland area. Age is not important but they must get along with cats and young children since I have a one year old daughter and 3 year old cat. I would like to adopt local since I want to meet our prospective new family member. :)

I might get that one for the mustang. I can't fit the baby seat in it (nothing fits in the back seat of a mustang) so I could use a zipline in it. Now I just need a dog to buckle in lol

I don't have a dog yet, I'm just trying to think ahead to the future. I plan on taking our future dog on many trips that will involve car rides so I'm tying to think of the safest way to transport in a car. I'm limited to what I can do since I have an infant car seat in the back of my car already.

Doggie seat belts?

I've been looking at the stores to find a good dog seat belt/harness but they have so many kinds. I don't have room to crate a dog for trips so what options are out there for car safety and travel? What do you guys use or can recommend for me?
