Stanley, our 1 year old basset, is showing signs of seperation anxiety. Let me give you some back story. We got him a year ago st the same time we brought my grandpa in to care for him. Mom gave him her bedroom and she started sleeping on the couch. After awhile grandpa got a hospital bed and slept downstairs. My step dad is in the basement about 90% of the time, which the dogs have access to. In February my grandpa passed and mom went into the hospital. After coming home from the hospital mom continued to sleep downstairs. So now if mom tries to sleep upstairs Stanley goes insane. He just continues to bark until someone goes to him. What can we do? We can't let the dogs out of their area as they just will not get the hang of not peeing in the house thing. Any advice would be great. We need a good night sleep!
