Ease Your Dog Into Being Alone

I’m sure that you’ve had this experience if you own a dog and don’t keep him in is dog carrier or dog crate while you’re gone. You come home to find your dog at the window barking up a storm!  When your dog is home alone and starts barking, he could be barking a things outside or he may be just upset because you’re gone. Victoria Voight,an Animal Behavorist in Pomona, California suggests that you turn on a thirty minute tape when you leave the house and then listen to the tape when you get back. She says that if you hear  the dog start walking around and whining and barking or knocking things over, he probably has separation anxiety. Dogs have to be acclimated slowly to being alone. Start by leaving for only a minute or two then gradually work your way toward longer intervals. If the problem doesn’t get better seek professional help.

Remember, your pets count!

Keep some oldies playing for your dog while your gone—-Edgewater Gold Radio plays the largest variety of oldies and standards from the 50s thru the 80’s plus some great pop standards! You and your dog will love them! He may even sing along. If you have a google device or Alexa, just say ” play Edgewater Gold Radio!” and the oldies will flow!
