Our puppy POGO 5 months, is a very nice boy, until it is time for us to go to school or work. The moment he realizes we are going to leave, he goes crazy, starts barking and gets hyper. The barking continues for a long time. This happens no matter whether we leave for 5 minutes or more.
Welcome to the forum. I'm assuming he's being left alone, . How long are you leaving him for.? Here's an article on separation anxiety. http://www.dogstardaily.com/training/home-alone I'm in the middle of a new book about this. If you want further material ,it's called DON'T LEAVE ME, by Nichole Wilde. It's a difficult problem. The key is to start from day one that you get them and slowly build them up to time alone.
