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.
Subject: Separation Anxiety Training Tue May 12, 2015 8:15 pm
Hey guys, I have been going through some separation anxiety training with Ellie here and decided to post this video for any additional tips. It's only a portion of the time since after about 30 minutes she decided to sleep. She has been on Clomicalm for about 2 months now and we have seen some great improvements, even letting us leave her for a full work day (9-10 hours).
My question about this video is that she still seems unsettled at first but is so tired from her exercising and training that she will lay down partially with her eyes closed. We have tried a Kong with peanut butter in the past but we think that overstimulates her or makes her very thirsty because whether its been 15 minutes or an hour, she immediately tries desperate attempts to escape. By just giving her a treat, she has been fine but doesn't look settled.
She has plenty of bones as well but doesn't touch those in the crate. We have given her bully sticks in the past but haven't tried any recently for fear of overstimulating her.
