Hello all! I have a new Whippet puppy, Nala is 11 weeks old and has now been with me for 3 weeks. She is an absolute delight (apart from about 40 mins 2x day when she's hell on wheels!), she comes with me to work so is with me all day in the office, playing, having cuddles from everyone and snoozing. She sleeps happily at night in her crate, will happily chill in her crate during the day and is quite happy to be in a different room to me when I'm at home. However, she becomes quite wound up when I have to leave her at home and I go out. She isn't left for long periods at all, literally 45 mins or so whilst I pop to Sainsburys etc. Yesterday morning she was alone for almost 2 hours as I had an emergency dental appointment. She is shut in the kitchen when I go out but not locked in her crate as this makes her worse. I've got a camera set up in the kitchen so I can keep an eye on her and she is always happily occupied with a Kong or her Lickimat for about 30 mins, but then she starts whining and crying and howling, it will stop occasionally and then she's right back at it again! I'm unsure if this is separation anxiety or just her being a puppy? She will need to learn to be alone for short periods (3 hours max, eg. If I went out for dinner). Whenever I go out I always make sure she's fed, toileted, had a play, left with things to amuse herself with etc. Any advice would be much appreciated!
