My new man (okay dog) has been good...mostly. He hasn't destroyed anything. He hasn't peed or pooped in the house. He doesn't bark, as a matter of fact I didn't hear him bark until three days after he came to live me. He barked at someone knocking on the door. I thought, "Whew, I got lucky! He is a well behaved quiet doggy!" Until I came home from work yesterday. There was a note taped to my door. This is what it said:
Your dog has been barking non-stop since 7:00 A.M. this morning & it is now almost 4:30 P.M. in the afternoon. This is very disturbing. Please do something about this!
Soooo...my little guy seems to have a bit of separation anxiety. I've done all the things it says to do online for this. He has been crated. He goes into the crate willingly and even seems to like it while I'm home. I put a t-shirt with my scent on it in there. I've given him chew toys and a kong full of his food.
I left today for a couple hours to have lunch with a friend. When I came back he was howling and crying. Any suggestions?
Oh yeah, and the neighbors? I don't know which neighbors left the note. I spoke to a couple of them today, and they both said they hadn't heard him. I went to my upstairs neighbors' apartment (I know they are home because I can hear them), but they didn't answer the door when I knocked. Passive aggressive much?
