Hello all, I wondered if I could get some help and advice please (newbie to this forum!). We moved into our new house at the beginning of April with our Labrador Millie. We had a week off work to spend with her and get her settled in the house. She knows where her home is now and when we take her for a walk and tell her to go home and goes back and waits next to the door. She is completely settled when we are there, the issue is when we leave her. We don't leave her for long, we both work full time and I know from past experiences on other pet forums I will probably get bashed for working when having a dog but she has visitors every hour. We do not work long hours and she has a 40 minute run around the field in the morning before we go to work and a 1-2 hour walk when i get back at 4pm. At our old house (where she grew up) we had a relative who came in to see her every 1-2 hours to let her out and have a play with her and take her for a walk every 3 hours. We have tried to go back to basics and leaving her for 5 mins a time and then 10 mins etc. We have a camera in the kitchen where we leave her (a very large kitchen so plenty of space), and when we leave she whines and cries for about 10 minutes, she then settles for about 15 mins and then gets up and barks again. I am aware it is stressful for her being a new a new home and being left alone but just wondered if there is anything I can do to help her? She would be fine alone in the old house and play with toys and the stuffed kong and keep herself entertained, however in this house no matter what I leave her to play with she will not touch it (even her favourite treat) and as soon as we walk in the door she will get it and eat it so I am well aware that she is stressed when we are not there but I know she wasn't bothered about being alone before so I just want her to get back to that stage. I leave the radio on for her, her bed is in the kitchen with my dressing gown, she has toys left behind and treats hidden in the kitchen to stimulate her but it isn't working. Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays she is going to my family members house all day until I finish work. Wednesday she will be alone with my mum (who lives a few doors down) will be going in every 40 mins or so. and Friday I am only at work 4 hours so again my mum will go in every 40 mins but I am just worried about stressing her too much. So sorry for the long post, please do not say I am a bad owner as previous forums have done as I know my dog and I know what we can do with her and when she is sad which is why I am seeking help because when we get home she has a big smile on her face and tail is wagging it is just when we go out I can't get her to not be anxious. THANKS EVERYONE.
