Hi! Brand new to this forum. I have had many many dogs before, and I currently have a 12 year old Bichon Frise and a 6 month old Australian shepherd/ terrier mix. The Aussie is quite small and weighs about 10 pounds. I have had her for 2 months now. She refuses to be potty trained and pees constantly and everywhere. I have taken her to the vet and she has no urinary tract issues. No matter the amount of times I take her out she still goes inside and then runs through her urine and spreads it all over the house. She has major crate trauma and cannot be crate trained. She also has severe separation anxiety and even if I leave her even for 2 minutes to go to the bathroom she will follow me in or howl and cry actual wet tears if I lock her out. Her anxiety behavior is really taking a toll. She jumps constantly like a spring and cannot sit still and then wears herself out to the point of exhaustion, and I believe the urinating is also a symptom of the anxiety. She will jump and pee at the same time...I was considering trying lavender essential oils and giving her diluted chamomile tea, as well as playing soothing music for her while I am at work (which is only 4 hours at a time) to at least calm her a little. The stress she experiences anytime she is away from me is making her crazy. I have never had such problems with any of the 10+ dogs I have owned, and am sort of at a loss. I have had several people that know her say they would have put her on Prozac by now, but I don't want to do that to such a young dog. Does anyone have thoughts on teas and essential oils for puppies?
