Since Sadie died, Spencer has been staying with my mom everyday while I went to work. My mom had a decline in her health recently & is currently going to adult daycare Mon-Fri. Now, for the first time in his life, Spencer is spending his days alone. The first 2 days I left for work, he ws ok, but the 3rd day he went into a panic - running around the house with a toy in his mouth, crying & drooling. I took him for a walk and afterwards he was better but not great. This is his 3rd week alone, & he is continuing to have problems. Doggy daycare is out, because of his temperment (his is not tolerant of other dogs or strangers). I do have a neighbor that he loves who is willing to let him out daily, but she is out of town until next week. Honestly I'm not sure if her letting him out once a day is going to work. I think he just does not want to be alone. I've left TVs on and today I left his Kong smeared with peanut butter, which seemed to distract him from me leaving a little. I've been reading up on Clomicalm - has anyone used this or had success with it? I've read that it is meant to be temporary, and I'm not wild about putting him on another drug. Any suggestions?
