    hi there
    this is a common problem for some owners and usually fixable with a little bit of effort. the previous links are an excellent source of information. also, look up my thread "unusual solution for separation anxiety". none of the traditional methods worked on my rescue lab so I had to come up with a tailor made solution. hope it helps. several people on here have tried my method with great success!

    hi tripod thanks for the speedy reply and the links ,i dont want to go down the crate route dont think id find one big enough anyway lol .but will try out some of the other tecniques.
    hi lucysnewmum your idea sounds very intresting will definatly give that a try cause he wines and moans if i go upstairs during the day ,hes fine when we go to bed we have a stair gate to stop he climbing up them.

    Crates are great! Dogs love the secure feling they get from them aswell, you probably will find one big enough, ours ispretty huge xD

    If you don't want to do the crate thing certainly confine him to one area with a baby gate that you work on separation exercises in so that he has one area that becomes a secure safe place that you always return to ;)
