Sounds like she has separation anxiety Carol if she's barking until you come home. You'll need to work on this if it's not to become a bigger problem.

There's loads of things that you can do to help this. Make sure she has lots of things to do while you're gone - frozen kongs stuffed with her favourite food (peanut butter is always a big hit) will keep her busy while you're gone. Try adding rescue remedy to her water to help her relax. Don't make a fuss when you're leaving or coming home. Don't reinforce the barking with attention. When you come in after being out ignore her for the first 5 minutes. A few drops of lavender essential oils on her bedding may help also and leave the radio on low with lyric FM or a talk radio station.

You could also try crate training her. Tripod gave me a handout on this that I can email to you if you PM me your email address. You need to get her to associate the crate with lots of positive things. So start with having the crate in the room with the door open and hiding bits of chicken etc under the bedding. Every time she goes into the crate throw some more chicken into her and lots of praise. Keep doing this, gradually building up the length of time she's in the crate before giving her a treat. So for example, when she goes in the first time you keep praising her and constantly feeding her chicken. Then gradually building it up so she's only getting a bit of chicken every few seconds etc etc.

Eventually you'll build up to having her in the crate with the door closed and throwing chicken in through the bars of the crate, all the time building up the association of the crate as a great place. When you've gotten to the stage where she's sitting in the crate with the door closed while being fed chicken, try putting a frozen kong in the crate and let her go in and eat it in there. It will take her a while to get through the kong so builds up the amount of time that she's in there. With a bit of luck after she's finished the kong she'll be so tired that she settles down for a nap.

There's loads of other stuff in the handout and I'm sure Tripod will correct any errors I've made in the above or include anything I've left out.

Separation anxiety is not good for a dogs mental health. I know it can seem cute that the dog has become so attached to you that they hate to see you go, but the last thing you want is a distressed dog who hates you being away for any length of time. I went through it with Millie when she first arrived and it wasn't good for her.

Obviously loads of exercise will help to tire her out so a nice long walk before you have to go out will help also so that hopefully she'll just sleep while you're gone.

That's a common misconception about crate training and it's often because it's not done properly. However if the proper positive association is made with the crate it becomes a real safe haven and den for the dog, somewhere secure that they can go when they're feeling anxious which is full of familiar smells, treats etc. When I first heard about crates I thought it was cruel to lock a dog in a cage, but when I see the huge benefit it has on the mental health of anxious dogs if done properly, I would always be a huge advocate of it. You have to think of the fact that she's going to a home as well, she's not going to be with you forever, and if she's already crate trained it will make it so much easier for her to settle into a routine in a new home.

Definitely start putting the rescue remedy in her water - it's brilliant for helping anxious dogs. Separation anxiety can occur even when there's someone with the dog. She obviously has a very strong bond with you which is why she barks when you're not there. Millie was the same, except she used to pee every time I left the room, even if she was with other people.

She's a lovely little thing. Hope she finds her perfect forever home soon.

Hi Carol, this poor girl is in a bit of a state. Rescue dogs fall in love VERY hard at the slightest hint of stability in their lives and this is not necessarily a good thing.
Kazza, you did well there - wow you must have been listening to me as I drone on and on and on blink But separation anxiety is probably the most over diagnosed (and mis diagnosed) behavioural disorder seen in dogs. It is generally accepted that if the dog eats while alone that it is unlikely to be true sep anxiety. Anorexia just before the owner departs, while allone and for a short period after the owner's return then we are looking at something else.
There are other things that it could be but it is likely to be separation distress (yes there is a difference!).
Crate training is great but also is alone training. I have a handout on alone training I can send on if you want some tips Carol, just let me know. Feel free to get in touch if you have any queries.
