I have a 20 month old dobie who is suffering severley from separation anxiety. Most I am out is 5 hours at a time but in that time she howls the house down and neighbours are complaining now. Any ideas what i can do? She has an hours run every morning, stuffed kongs, chew toys, tv and lights are left on, we have a dab diffuser, she goes to obedience training where she's doing well. I've tried leaving for a few minutes, coming back and gradually building it up but that hasn't worked. I've asked neighbours to write down when she's howling but they are "too busy" - not much help for me. Please help I'm worried about her - my other dog doesn't do it.
