It seems ridiculous but I get so worried that my dog isn't happy and I'm not giving her enough attention/time etc. She seems happy and is perfectly healthy so I don't really know why.. I work full time, shifts so sometimes long days, sometimes short days, occasional sleep-ins. But I have about 5 people from 'borrow my dog' who I trust fully, and are great, who come in and walk her and give her company so she is never alone for more than 3 hours (have recently been gradually putting this up to 4) and she loves them all so I don't feel guilty about that. Very occasionally none of those people are available so I will pay a dog walker/sitter to have her for the day. When I do sleep ins I usually leave her with my housemate, who isn't the biggest dog fan but is ok with having her sleep on his bedroom floor while I'm not there. She'll cry if she's left outside a room alone and knows someone is in there. When she's left in the house alone she is confined to the hallway, downstairs and upstairs, with her bed in it and her toys, usually leave a stuffed kong too. I was going to let her have run of my bedroom too but she started chewing the wood legs of my bed.. I don't go out on nights/evenings out all the time but when I do I feel so guilty! She seems to know the difference between me getting ready to go out with her and without her.. She gets at least 2 walks a day, even if I'm starting work at 7am I'll be up at 5 to walk her, as if she's left alone without having had a walk she gets bored and chews things. Then sometimes a walk with the dog walker if I'm at work and another short one when I get home (if I don't finish late), or 2 walks with me if I'm not working, or one big long walk with me if we go for a hike or something. She'd have 60 walks a day if she had it her way. I'm 100% sure I am walking her enough, and as she's only 10 months I know they're not meant to be walked really long distances at once every day, but I still feel like she has so much energy and I feel guilty that I haven't entertained her enough to burn it off? She also gets fed twice a day, morning and evening, yet always seems hungry? I guess that's just a labrador thing. But again, feel guilty that I'm not feeding her enough! Even though she is a perfect weight, I feed her the recommended amount and she gets lots of treats, too. She's very clingy when I'm home, in that she'll follow me up the stairs if I'm going to the bathroom, basically will follow me everywhere. I don't know if I did something to cause this when she was a young puppy, but she also sleeps on my bed and I can't get her to stop! I know I should never have let her do this at all, but too late to think about that now. And I feel like if I do stop her from sleeping on my bed, I'll feel horribly guilty about it! She is almost the most perfect dog, everyone that meets her is amazed by how well behaved she is, people who walk her love how good she is on and off lead, and she's been so easy to train I feel like she's almost done it herself, I don't really feel like I can take any credit. Her only problem has been that she doesn't like being alone, but she is getting loads better and doesn't chew anything now unless left for longer than she's used to. Right now as I'm typing this she is entertaining herself with a tennis ball and some chew toys. I just wanted any general advice on what more I can do, to make her happier and make me feel less guilty!! And wonder if anyone else has felt like this? I wanted a dog for sooo long before I got her and it's been the best thing I've ever done but I just want to feel like I'm being the best dog mum I can be!
