Hello and I am looking for some dog advice

I have a two year old femal Labradoodle named Coco who has developed a habit in the last few months of letting out an incredible amount of dog drool whenever she is left alone. We don't leave her long (2 hours tops) but even for short periods she will be complete drenched if left in her kennel or will leave huge puddles of drool if left in a room. It seems to be some sort of seperation anxiety but it is really becoming a problem. Any ideas???

Drool can indicate nausea or high anxiety...

Separation anxiety is hard to "fix". Some say to leave for progressively longer periods of time so your dog gets used to the idea of you leaving and coming back.:shrug:

I agree and it likely is anxiety. Try leaving her for 10 minutes at first, then 20, 30, 45, etc.

BTW, welcome to the forum and we'd love to see pics of Coco. :dog:
