I posted about Baxter's seperation issues.
Well today was horrible. I had to grocery shop and he cried and screamed for well over an hour. ( I had a cell phone on his crate connected to mine so I could actually listen to his reaction when i left) I almost came home, but I have to get my stuff done.
Anyways,
I have been thinking....
Would getting a companion puppy for him be an answer? Has anyone had a similar situation? When we got Baxter, we toyed with the Idea of getting 2, but decided on just him for now.

Thanks,

Two dogs bond and become fast friends. Our shy, submissive Spock came out of his shell when we got dominant, bossy little Bones. They do bring out the best in one another, I think, and keep one another from being lonely during the day when my boyfriend and I are at work. They also tend to keep one another out of trouble, focusing on playing with one another rather than a solo dog finding new, destructive ways to occupy himself. It's not that much more work. The second dog issue is definitely not one to decide lightly, but getting our second dog was a choice my boyfriend and I, for one, are happy and grateful to have made.

I just have a few ?s...sorry, Im an 'old' member but not on here much

-Age of Baxter
-Rescue, Breader, Pet Store??
-Do you crate train?

Snoopy was a rescue at about 1.5 yrs old, now 4, had HORRIBLE seperation anxiety and we used the plug in Comfort Zone and some Oral meds for him for about a year. We lived in Chicago, downtown, with lots of noise and construction, it was horrible for him. It worked very well!!

I can say, since moving to Cali, No more Comfort Zone or any anxiety issues..

Now he doesnt need anything and he is the happiest beagle ever..he is ok alone, out of the crate, he is GREAT!

We got Duke a companion. He had the labs, then we lost Roscoe and Cassie is just getting too old to deal with Duke. He never had any SA issues, but he needed somebody to help burn off his energy. Violet was just the ticket! She is as energetic as he is (probably more so, actually) and she is constantly wanting to play with him. They are so cute together and it has made Duke a better dog by channeling that energy.

We always liked the idea of 2 because they entertain each other, therefore they aren't looking for things to get into to entertain themselves.

I got Lucky a feline companion. Lucky and Lily have so much fun together. Before I got Lucky a cat friend, I used to play a Dog music CD to soothe him. That worked well too. Before the CD, he would destroy everything in sight including shredding his blankets.
