Here's hoping this is your weekend Paddy.

Dogs » Kylie

Hi Helen and Dave. We've done the same with Kylie as with when we first had our Lucy and Ben. We did it in small stages really, starting with going upstairs or just shutting the back door and standing in the garden where we couldn't be seen but could still hear and attempting to stay out of sight for a minute or two then going back and returning whichever dog to their bed, settling them then trying it again. Only two or three times in a row then going about our business. When we were being shadowed in the early days for all of them, we'd just walk around as if they weren't there til they got bored and went and sat down. (I find greyhounds tend to fold to the floor eventually if there's nothing in it for them). With Kylie being so cuddly, we have tried not to give in to the early demands for fuss and just give her a quick stroke then send her to her bed (in the same room) and a few minutes later call her over for fuss then send her away again after a little while to her bed. I suppose really we've tried to not let them get overly dependent on us for security and be present but not stuck to them and gently discourage them sticking to us to give them confidence in their own (and each other's) company. We also have been leaving the radio on at a low level so they can hear something when we go out. (I'm assuming all has been fine with Kylie when we've gone out. She hasn't been crying when we've left and not even by the door when we've come back til she hears the key in the lock. Our neighbour we've asked to text if there's a problem hasn't reported anything either). We also don't make a fuss of any of them just before we go out or immediately as we come back. We've built up how long we leave them for..we've gone from a couple of minutes to five, then ten, twenty minutes/half hour walk round the block, then an hour or so and a couple of hours up to three or more. We've tended to leave it biggest part of a week before attempting an hour or more so they're more used to their new life first. We also did this with the 8 year old foster girl we had last year. It may help Kylie that she's got Lucy and Ben who don't make any fuss when we go out anywhere although I have heard of cases where having another dog has made no difference. A work colleague recently took on a rescue dog (non hound) that had serious separation anxiety to the extent it wrecked his house in the first few weeks, but he persevered and discovered DAP sprays and it got better although he did use it very heavy-handedly at first to calm the dog down. I can't say as I haven't used them. We also make sure the dogs all have toilet opportunity before we go out so that doesn't cause any extra discomfort. I think it's just perseverance really. I don't know if it's relevant but we always have our dogs sleep downstairs and they're not allowed upstairs right from the start so that gives a boundary to begin with I suppose. I don't know if any of this will help you but all the best x

Well what a small world we live in Jed and I were sat in our favorite dog friendly pub in Leominster having lunch and the table next to me asked about Jed and where he came from they all knew about Daybreaks, Ruth and all the good work you do, they could not speak highly enough of you all, as can I keep up the good work.

Hi Justine and Andy. It's lovely to hear Kylie is doing so well with you, she looks such a sweet girl. I was wondering if you could give me any tips on how you handled her separation anxiety. We have had our Milly since May but if we have to leave her alone she is howling and barking. Am in the process if trying various things but just wondered how you approached the issue. Thanks a lot! X

Kylie's such a happy little girl. I had a visit from my mom again this afternoon and she met her at the door of the front room wagging her bum let alone her tail and went up several times during the visit for mom to take on fussing duties. Kylie really is anyone's for a cuddle! I don't think I've ever known such a cuddly greyhound. Ours like attention but are equally happy just knowing you're around somewhere if they fancy a cuddle or a belly rub. Kylie also stood patiently for grooming this morning too - in the kitchen as damp and cold outside. The only thing she's not keen on is having her ears cleaned but I persevere anyway. She ate around 90% of her food again today too. We haven't put any wet food in for around a week now. The separation anxiety seems to have settled down really well now. I don't usually work on Thursdays and today, I heard no grumblings or whines from Kylie when I was upstairs or outside whereas last week, there were a few. She seems so much happier and relaxed. We hope her brothers and sisters are doing ok too. I'm cuddling Kylie today because she deserves it for being a little star x
