My dog barks and whines when left alone.

Hello!

I'm not a dog trainer by any means, so I have no idea how to deal with this.

Our dog must be in the other rooms. In those rooms, she has access to both food and water, and she's walked routinely. She has several comfortable places to sit and has toys if she wants them. But when she's left alone, she freaks out. It drives me crazy, and I don't know how to communicate with her.

If it makes a difference, she's about 6 or 7 years old and a terrier.

How long have you had her? If the dog has not been alone much in life then it's tough you must go slow. Maybe just 5-10 minutes at a time and work up to that. Do not give in to whining, but reward when she's silent. Do you close a door? Maybe a see through gate would help her feel less alone.
