What are you doing when the dog acts out?

Have you discussed over the counter meds with your vet?

He is a 9 month old pointer mix. He was aresuce puppy and has since had issuse with being left alone or closed off in any space. after trying crate training he would have raw gums from trying to chew his way out. he scatched up the bathroom door when i was gone and the door closed behind him. right now the only option is for him to be with me or my kids constantly since we are not in our own home and
i'm afraid he will tear something up and i will have to get rid of him.I do't have the money right now for a vet visit or expensive meds.

Thank you for that information. I would like to direct you to sites for training and separation anxiety so you can work with him to become more stable to be left alone, in the end meds alone will not be enough and if you can do the training in conjunction he will get better faster.


With the training, the clicker cost about 3.00 or less so it is not expensive, watch the videos so you can see how it is done.


for over the counter meds melatonin has been known to help and I will direct you to a site that will tell you side effects and dosing.
