My 1st post here! Didn't know this wonderful place existed. My 1 1/2 year old Larry has the worst case of seperation anxiety I've ever sen in any dog. He's normally the sweetest dog in the world but when I begin to leave the house he literally attacks me. He's ripped my clothes and drawn blood many times as I try to leave. Suggestions please! Thanks in advance.:confused:

When Lightning was a pup, he would destroy my house when left alone. He was on medication for awhile, but it didn't help. So when he was about 18 months old, I got him a buddy, Stomps, and that solved the problem. I was very resistant to getting a second dog, but I never regretted a moment of my time with two. You might think about that option. (You'll notice on this board that very few people have just one basset.)
