I really need some advice for my 10 month old chihuaha/jack russell who suffers from seperation anxiety. She has really grown attached to my wife and everytime my wife leaves, our puppy starts to cry and I mean CRY!(and it breaks my heart). If my wife leaves for an hour it’s one hour of constant crying, 2 hours is just absolute hell for the puppy.
We started leaving the house 15 min. and have slowly moved it to 60 min. increments. When we return she’s at the door crying and scratching. We haven’t really gone out (movies,dinner,etc.) because we feel guilty leaving her alone.
Any advice on how to better deal with this situation is welcome and many thanks in advance.
