Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I checked the calendar and I've had Kenzi a month and two days today. I let her free roam the house for the first time today for a couple hours while I was at work and she did really well with only one mishap with a decorative vase of lighted sticks. She gets really excited when I go out the door to leave and starts racing around the house and jumps up on the coffee table so she can see out the window and watch me go. In her excitement I believe she knocked the vase over and later when she got bored of her bones they were just too much to pass up so she destroyed the sticks. If she hadn't knocked them over in her excitement I'm pretty sure she never would have bothered them since an empty sherbet container was on the floor in the recycling and she didn't touch that nor any of the other recycling. Is there anyway to help her stay calm when I leave? She does the same regardless if I'm leaving for two minutes or two hours.

Left her in the house again today but took the vases of sticks out of the room. When I came home all was as I left it. She did much better today but she still wigs out when I leave. No barking, just jumping and clawing. I wish I could get that under control. Life would be easier if I could just take her to work with me.

No destruction is such a great thing! Gus gets destructive ONLY when we try to confine him. He escapes from his confinement then goes ballastic! But when we do not confine him, he starts off calm, and stays relatively calm for some time. We have worked him up to 2hrs now. With the desensitization exercises that we do with him, I find that coming in and out of the front door a couple times before ACTUALLY leaving him makes him stay calmer for longer. Your husky sounds like she doesn't mind being alone since she is not destructive or vocal when you leave. I think the desensitization exercises would really help with her to keep her calm during your leaving routine.

Thanks! I'll try the coming in and out before actually leaving. She's used to me going in and out since I do a lot of yard work and wander back and forth. She stays decently calm during that but when I'm fully leaving she just seems to sense it. I've been trying to hide my car keys and/or picking them up at least a half hour before I leave. They seem to be a trigger. She loves to go for rides in the car and I know that doesn't help the cause.
