Guide To Australian Shepherd Training & Care

Separation Disorder

by Marie Vallejo
(Mariposa, CA, USA)

My husband and I have two female littermates. We are older, retired people and are all together almost all the time except for an occasional run 'up town' for no more than an hour and the puppies (Now 4 1/2 months old) stay in their crate.

They have only been apart for one day when I took a day trip with one of them. Each did ok but one was with me and one with my husband. Still... never alone.

I occasionally will put one outside, alone, and that has proven to be stressful to her. I don't know when the occasion will arise when one will have to be alone but it is a worry for me.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Fine!!!

You sound like you spend tons of time with them, they sound like they would be fine left alone for a day or two.
