Hi All, I have a 13 week old cockapoo and am nervous as to if he is developing or has developed separation anxiety. To give you some background, although he is in a family home, due to having the most free time (and being the most willing), I am his key carer - I feed him, bathe him, train him, take him for walks, put him to sleep and play with him. For the first week I was pretty much all he saw 100% of the time. Now the issue is that he follows me around the house the whole time. I tried the glinting technique but he simply doesn’t stay alone in a room for more than 3 seconds without following behind me. When alone he barks and howls endlessly - I am trying not to encourage this by only entering the room when he has been quite for a five seconds. I’m not sure if this is separation anxiety but I’m becoming increasingly concerned as I will have to spend less and less time with him in the coming weeks. People were suggesting just leaving him alone and letting him cry it out but that seems really awful to me. Others were saying it’s because he sleeps in my bed? He only does this in the night for around 6 hours but naps in his beds during the day. looking forward to your suggestions.
