Hi all. First time posting anything on here. Just want to know if anybody has any tips on leaving my beagle alone. Madaí (see adorable picture below) is a brilliant 5 month old dog who has came on leaps and bounds. So good on walks and has learnt so many tricks.
sheis fine in her crate and sleeps through the night. Potty accidents are a rare occurrence. She loves her food and is well socialised.
the only issue is that if I have to leave the room to go get changed or go to the bathroom she goes nuts. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Welcome..so cute!!
Beagles are pack dogs so leaving them alone is a challenge. My dog is now 10.5 years old now and she has come a long way. Since your dog is a puppy hopefully you're using a crate..thats where to put the dog while out..how long an absence? Leave some toys and perhaps some clothing item in her crate you have worn so she smells it.
You can leave a tv or radio on..
Dont make a big deal about leaving..give her a treat when she goes in the crate.

She's adorable. You've taken the place of Mom and she's still a baby.

SInce she's accustomed to her crate, leaving her there for little periods of time starting out and rewarding her for not making a lot of noise. (The other option is to let her come with you when you go to another room unless you can't keep an eye on her, then crate is a safer bet).

Well I have an older cat you see and I’m talking about simple things like going to the toilet or grabbing something from upstairs. I would rather not have the dog upstairs you see. So is it viable to crate her for like 5 minutes at a time?
