Gryff has always been MY dog. What I mean by that is that he couldn't really care less about my husband or my son. It's all me. While that is nice and all, it does get problematic.
Usually when I'm not home, Gryff will hang out with my husband and there is no problem. However, lately Gryff is sort of freaking out. When I'm not home, he shakes like somebody put a quarter in him. He is also panting and following Chuck around like he's attached to his ankles.
He does get the shakes every few months or so and he'll have it for a day or so and then it goes away. I took him to the vet about it and I got the "little white dog" diagnosis. It was nothing.
The only thing I can think of that is different right now is that it's hunting season and I've been hearing a lot of gunfire. Gryff doesn't do well with thunder, vacuum cleaners, etc.
Any ideas on what to do about this? I am going away for four days in January and I'd like Gryff to be comfortable without me and I don't want the rest of my family driven nuts by the dog.
