    I’m Denise and the own of two fabulous cocker spaniels. Paddington Bear (pads) and Tatty Teddy (Tats)
    Looking forward to friendly chats and advice - aaargh - separation anxiety rules in my house.

    Welcome, your two are adorable. I'm sure someone else will be able to come along and help with Separation Anxiety, but for now i have found this link that could help. - Separation Anxiety in Dogs

    Excessive Barking or Howling

    Some dogs bark or howl in response to various triggers in their environments, like unfamiliar sights and sounds. They usually vocalize when their guardians are home as well as when they’re away. For more information about this kind of problem, please see our articles, Barking and Howling.

    Welcome :)

    There's an article I wrote on another forum about dealing with separation anxiety - I did a lot of reading up on it because my lad had it: Separation anxiety - Positively | Victoria Stilwell | Forum

    An excellent book on the subject is I'll Be Home Soon by Patricia McDonnell. There's also a behaviourist who specialises in the issue who will monitor and support you via video links so you don't need to live near her or pay her travel expenses: Emma Judson at Canine Consultants: https://www.thecanineconsultants.co.uk/about-us Hope that helps!

    I have read @JudyN 's pieces on SA and they are really good.

    And, another vote here for Emma - she is one of the UK's leading behaviourists on separation anxiety.
