Hi everyone! I need a little help please. I just got my rescue pup who is 7 months old. He follows me EVERYWHERE which I love but if I go to shower or the bathroom he cries. My boyfriend can be in the room even and if i leave for 5 minutes he cries. He has been through a few hands the past few months so I am sure he is a little stressed out someone is going to leave him again but how do I make it known I am not going anywhere for long?
Also, he is amazing when we go to bed in his crate because his crate is beside my bed. But when we leave for the day he goes insane. He makes every sound in the book and tries to claw his way out of the crate. I give him one of the treat balls and loads of toys to keep him entertained when I am out but he just cries.
Is there anything I can do to help him feel a little more secure? Will it just take time for him to know I am going to be around? I have only had him for 5 days but I want to make sure I am taking the right steps.
thanks so much!
