I know it's only been a week since Luny came to live with me and we are still working through a few things while he settles in.
He is still really anxious when I leave, and goes and hides in the bedroom when he knows I'm getting ready to go to work. I know he is fine with the crate itself because he readily goes in if he sees his dinner coming. It's just the part about being alone that causes him anxiety. I've left a talk-radio station on, and a treat-filled kong and a few stuffed toys in the crate, and a pile of newspapers in there as well (he's gone through all my old towels and rugs tearing them apart). I'm working on "disappearing" for short periods of time into the basement or garage and this morning even left him loose in the house while I went and shoveled snow. I feel guilty about crating him all day while I'm at work but I just don't trust him yet. I know this is also just going to take time to work itself out (after all I've only had him a week).
However, I was wondering if anyone has tried those doggies calming-sprays or room scents?
