I need some advise as to how to get Gizmo to get used to being alone when I leave my appartment.
He has his own room now, and I had a babygate in the doorway so he doesn't feel closed in. However, he can now escape by jumping and then lifting himself up and over the top! :eek:
So I now have to use the door and close him in.
I have done some reading, and there are so many different approaches. Some suggest 30 minutes once a day, some say 1 hour. Others suggest short multiple attempts a day.
So, how about you guys? What would you say is the better way?
Gizmo cries a LONG time. Yesterday I had some stuff to do in the city, and was away for 2 hours, he was still crying when I came home…sigh...
I am thinking maybe I should close the door, while I am home and wait until he stops crying and award him when he does. Do this several times throughout the day.
