New Beagle Mommy

Hi... I'm Susan, and I'm a homeschooling wife and mother of six in British Columbia, Canada. About a month ago, we added a 2 yo beagle girl, Lulu, to our family. She's a lot of fun, and we love her dearly, but HOKEY DOODLES, the separation anxiety! In a month, she's only been left alone twice, but both times were a nightmare. The previous owner told me I should never leave her alone, and would have to hire a sitter if we went out, but I guess I'm just a little too stubborn to believe I can't help this little girl learn to feel comfortable in her crate for a few hours at a stretch. Any tips?

Welcome to BW!!!

I just saw an episode of "Barking Mad" on animal planet and it addressed Seperation Anxiety. I found it very interesting how the channeled the dog obsessive behavior of following her owner around into a Kong toy. Then they started working on the crate and leaving her in the crate. But they sort of broke her of the habit.

It was just on either Saturday the 23rd or Sunday the 24th.

Hope this helps! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grr.gif
