I have two beagles which I crate when I leave. Both of them have some level of anxiety. The newest addition made in December 2020 has the more severe. She barks and drools. The drool is so much that I used to think she peed in her crate. I have a blanket inside and it is literally soaking wet when I return after a couple hours. I ignore her when I get home, and she is fine. As soon as I let her out of the crate she acts normal. She is around 6 to eight years old. The previous owner insists she was born in 2014, but she looks older and the vet agreed. I asked him what he did when he left and he said he just put her outside, where I assume she barked the whole time. One of the reasons she was rehomed was because a neighbor threatened to call police if she kept barking. Her bark is a hoarse beagle bark, and I think it is endearing. But who and I to find fault with her. lol I do not like the fact that she pants and barks even if I am in another room. I can't leave her loose in the house when I am gone because she gets into everything. She tears up paper and anything else lying around, She acts like a puppy in this sense. My problem is dealing with her anxiety. I recently read an article where a man said he dealt with sep aniety by recording his voice and leaving it running in a loop while he was gone in the garage, so it would appear he was still home.. I mention this to help anyone else, as it does not work for me. I have tried calming chews and music, but nothing works. I am afraid she is losing so much fluid that it may affect her health.
