Hi all. I've raised this problem before in her update threads but this I think, needs a thread of its own. When I first got Honey, I pre-warned my neighbour that, as she settles in and adjust, she might bark and/or howl. Honey screamed! I first realised this on the very first night, when I settled her in the kitchen, with her crate. I simply lifted her crate up and put it beside me in my bedroom. That worked. Just leaving the room would result in that screaming. She would also wait for me at the top of the stairs and play a game of bitey fingers. She hasn't done any of that for months! The very day I came back from Thirsk with the girls, I got another text from neighbour, saying Honey had been barking "non-stop" for an hour and a half. My heart sank! I sent her a box of chocolates and an apology note, and wondered what on Earth I was going to do. I even considered quitting work and/or changing jobs to ensure I was home much more (Not that I leave them for very long in the first place - a couple of hours at most). I've been leaving the TV on for her when I leave, and am treating her with Zyklene, but there's been an itch in the back of my mind that something just didn't sit right. Like I said, Honey screams when suffering from SA - she doesn't bark, and she waits for me at the top of the stairs, plays bitey fingers and bum wiggled in excitement that I'm back home. This week, my mum has been away, and I have been cat sitting for her, giving me ample time to listen out for any problem noise coming from Honey, and any sign of Honey's S.A. upon my arrival. I've seen no sign of her anxiety - she's been curled up in one of the (numerous ) dog beds, and practically get a look of "Oh - you're back! Where's my lunch/what time is walkies?" I considered the possibility that she might hear my mum's car pulling up, and then settle down, so yesterday, I parked 2 blocks away and walked home, removed my shoes one block away and tiptoed back. I'd left Honey in my bedroom so stood beneath my bedroom window. I heard a radio (not mine), and the birds, but no barking/screaming. Last night, I put on my Big Girl Pants and decided to sound record her. It's a game changer. She did start barking at about 7pm (which was about 17mins into the recording). The second I heard it, it was clear she was reacting to some stimulus outside, and I suspect it was neighbour coming home. Far from being non-stop, she does stop - numerous times, but I can practically hear her pausing to listen. - Wherever possible, I already take Honey with me. I've done this from the start. - On Thursdays, which is neighbour's day off and when I have a social call, I ask my SIL to dog-sit. - I leave Honey in 1 room, (usually the living room, but not always) when I have to leave. Neighbour has previously said that so doing dulls the sound of Honey's barking, but last time, said it makes no difference as it "reverberates" through the flat. - Obviously, I get back home ASAP. - Barking when I'm home is sporadic. Likewise, when I come home - sometimes she barks, other times she doesn't. But then, I have worked on teaching her the "Enough" cue. So, as per title - how on Earth do I stop her from reacting to neighbour coming home and pottering around in her own flat, when I'm not home? Sorry for the essay but I've tried to be as thorough as possible.
