Hi everybody. We have a problem with our dog Rocky. Some of you may remember that we adopted him from a rescue a few weeks ago. We knew he had a bit of separation anxiety, but just assumed he stopped barking when we left the house. Well, I've just been informed by a neighbor that he barks for hours until someone gets home. Why she waited to tell us until the beginning of the work week is beyond me, but we need to do something quick. The weather is warming up and people will have their windows open. To top it all I have to go out of town, and my husband does tax prep. As you may imagine, he'll be pretty busy until the deadline. Has anyone used a citronella collar? Normally I'm in favor of retraining as opposed to gadgets, but we're in a bind here. My Mom can babysit sometimes, but that's not a solution. I also thought about locking him in the bathroom which will muffle the sound, but that's not a solution either. I won't even try a shock collar. It probably wouldn't work anyway with all the skin folds around his neck. Help!!
