Well, she said he is not suffering from separation anxiety (we've noticed some big changes in him in the past 3 months) but rather he needs to know what's going on. When I leave I tell him to guard the house and I leave.
She said he needs to know where you are going, what he needs to do while you are gone i.e. take a nap, play with your toys, etc. and tell him why he can't come. I am going to Costco and they don't allow pets but I will be home soon. Today was the first day, I did the above and when I came home he wasn't barking like a lunatic!
The staring, she said he's waiting for my cue to tell him what to do, he's anticipating my next move.
The other thing she said, is he doesn't like the location of his pillow in the kitchen because it's right in front of a vent and it blows cold air on him and his favorite pillow is the one that sits really high. She was right on both. The craziest thing was she said he senses I am thinking about getting another dog and he doesn't want a buddy, he likes being an only child. This was very true. I was thinking about getting another dog for him. Not anymore.
Keep in mind I did not talk to her at all, she talks to the animals and they talk back, she has a visual of your dog, you give her your dogs name and a visual appears. She said I see a small dog mostly black. She also described the breeder to a T and the puppy nanny as well. She also suggested I change his food because his skin felt really hot and she thinks he has a wheat allergy.
I know it all sounds crazy, didn't tell my husband I made the phone call, he would have me committed! bottom line, my pup isn't anxious or suffering from SA, he just wants to know what's going on. She also said he thinks he's a little person and not a dog and I need to regain alpha status in the house.
Anyways, her name is Judy Fuson. You can type judyfuson.com and her website will appear. You call or email, they call you back and set everything up. I would not have believed it if I had not experienced it. She was great.
