Our older GSD has gotten very spoiled with DH being home on sick leave these past few months. DH is Jax's master, Jax's "being" and there's a reason they call GSDs velcro dogs. DH is now more mobile with the cast/boot off his leg and he's soon to return to work. The problem is, Jax has a fit every time DH leaves the house without him. For instance, right now DH is gone to town for a few minutes. Jax had a fit when he left, whining and barking. Jax is now pacing back and forth to the living room window and back to me. We've tried putting him in his crate before DH leaves. He still whines, but as least he can't pace. If I tell him to sit (by me) and wait he will, for a few minutes, before he gets up and starts his pacing again. Any other ideas?
