Sounds like separation anxiety. Tucker was returned to his breeder for chewing through a wall and lots of other issues that were anxiety related. When she looked for a new family for him, she said he needed a family with another dog. Do you know Tucker NEVER exhibited some of the anxious behaviors again? I was amazed by this. Shadow really helped him with many of his issues.

He did react at first to thunder, but he got over it. He was terrified of the smoke alarm. To this day he gets nervous when he smells something burning off the coils, but he no longer tries to jump out the glass panel on our back door.

Until last week I used ot let Marley stay in my bedroom, but then he chewed some wood whilst I was out, so I moved him to the spare room (his bedroom) do you think this is why he is so upset? This spare room has never been used.

Just wanted to add, if you leave him in a crate, make sure he doesn't have a collar on. Actually, you should probably take his collar off any time you leave him alone, if you don't already, that is....

He sounds like a real sweetie.

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion." - Unknown
