Is it just a puppy thing????
I am the proud owner of a 13 week old Havanese girl named Sadie. Sadie is our first family pet and we just love her to death. I am not sure if Sadie has separation anxiety or not... Here is the issue that we are facing... When Sadie is at home all by herself (in a expen with food, water, toys and bed) or out of sight of someone, she cries and bark until she is tired. She doesn't do that if she can see someone and is perfectly content in that case to be in either her expen or crate. Being that this is our first puppy, and there is not a "nurse line" for puppies like there was when we had our first child for adivce. I was hoping my fellow Havanese owners could educate/reassure me if this is true separation anxiety or if this is something she will eventually grow out of, similiar to the behavior a baby exhibits when it wants to be constantly held. We talked to the breeder where we got her from and she said Sadie didn't exhibit any separation anxiety... Breaks our hearts to see our little girl upset when we are not around or if she can't see us when we are at home. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
