Glad you found the advice useful
In case you hadn't seen it - we just published an audio podcast last week on separation anxiety in dogs
. It's an interview with Doug Simpson who with his wife Elizabeth runs www.tenderfoottraining.com
. They have been helping members on this site for years... and go by the username tenderfoot .
Given what you have written in these posts I think you will find it very useful and I encourage you to take a listen. Good luck!
