I have a 10 year old and we moved into a new house where he is left alone all day. We have been aware of his Seperation Anxiety for many years, but have not worried about it because he always been with someone all day, now that we moved and the dog will be spending many hours alone. it is now a concern, he is always following us room to room and will be destructive when left alon, Always alert to our every move,Howls and whines when we leave the house, and starts to shake and whine when we are about to leave the house.. My question is! We have visited the vet and has recommended using Clomicalm, but not until we pay VERY costly Behavior Modification classes. Is there anything else we can do?
I recommened that you call around and find dog behavior classes that will help you, withour having to go through your vet. Good luck, vetcare
