I'm really confused. At the moment I'm trying to work on several issues with my dog. Well one thing she's always been (I thought) really good at is being left. We left her right from when she was a puppy building up From short periods of time to now maximum 5-6hours. We have tried several different areas of the house when we leave her but the only place she wouldn't wee or poo was her crate. So we now leave her in her crate but I filmed her today as my neighbour said she heard her whining loudly the other day. I watched the film and she didn't really settle much at all. She was whining, barking and scratching at her cage. Not for the whole time just every now and then for a minute or so. I give her a stuffed kong everytime I leave her but I didn't know she was so unsettled sometimes? I don't understand because I've filmed her on other occasions and all she does is eat her kong then sleep.... We have tried leaving her in the lounge not in her crate but whenever we did that she would eat things like my computer mouse and poo or wee everywhere so she obviously wasn't happy when we let her have free run! She never poos or wees in her crate but I thought she always settled down and was quite happy in there as I'm always giving her meals in there and stuffed kongs etc. Is there any reason why she is doing this? Any ideas? It can't be separation anxiety if she only does it occasionally can it?
