It seems too bad to discipline Cazzie for his separation anxiety. He's just so anxious when I leave! He doesn't bark, though, after I'm gone, but sits and waits and waits and waits....
But the barking fits (and nipping) have got to go. In the winter, we are in a mobile home park and I'm sure the neighbors don't want to hear his frenzied barking. He's teaching Chelsie to bark too! As soon as he thinks I am going away...putting on my makeup, going into the bathroom, putting on hand lotion, getting on my shoes, he goes into his barking frenzy and leaps up to nip my behind. I don't know what to do! He isn't responding to being laid on his back, mother-dog style, or being talked to sternly. Oh one more thing, and you may think this is funny...his frenzy is also set off when he sees me getting the garbage bag in the kitchen ready to go to the trash can outside! Cazzie, you little wierdo, I'm just going out the door to the trash can! I will be right back! I even take him with me but that doesn't help. He's very smart about many things but not about knowing that I WILL be coming back.
