Moving house

Hi I’m new to this .. I have a 5 year old Labrador X border collie , he has always been a bit of a clingy dog very cuddly and likes attention when I am around but has always been fine out in the yard to do his own thing with the company of another Labrador which was at our old home. We have just moved house and he is now the only dog in the yard , I have continued our routine and I take him for 2 walks a day before and after I go to work and I feed him at around 6.30pm every night , he has his old kennel and blankets, new AND old toys and I’ve also been making up treat toys for him such as icy poles and toys with treats hidden in them for when I am at work during the day . All he does is cry at the door when I am home and he has been excessively panting and tonight even began howling (straight after I went inside after just taking him for a walk) . Me and my partner are contemplating getting him a companion but don’t really want to as we aren’t sure wether it would make things better or worse , anyone have any suggestions/tips on how to get my dog to settle in 😞

sounds like seperation anxiety from the other dog. Treat the sep angst the same as you would if it were between dog & human. See dog forum search to read loads on this subject. You can use distractions like throw ball when he's at the door, training like- click- come here-treat pat praise, calming techniques- reasuring talking, massage, aromatherapy, you can introduce a new fun hobby into the routine for you 2 that will spark his interest like swimming or frisbee. Maybe a ball that dispenses treats as it rolls.I think if you can introduce the dogs before comitting is a great way to tell or ask for a weeks trial period when you buy or adopt one, fostering is another good option cz you can opt to keep or rehome. spca here will pay for foster dogs food & vet bills. is offline   Reply With Quote
