I have a catahoula puppy who is about 8 months old now and he has like extreme seperation anxiety. You can not leave this dog alone, i have tried everything; keeping him in a crate and he destroyed it tried locking him on the screened in patio he ripped the screen, tried keeping him in the laundry room he tore apart everything he could find. we tried to gate him in the kitchen and he jumped out, he cant run around the fenced yard because he climbs out and leaves, i have literally tried everything and if i chain him in the yad he barks and crys the whole time. I really do not want to have to get rid of him because he is a good boy when he is home he doesnt go to the bathroom in the house and he doesnt really chew anything. I need some ideas on what to do with him. I need to be able to leave this dog alone while im not home. I dont ant to get rid of him but enough has become enough. please help!!

Dog Whisperer Cesar Milan had an ep on his show with a segment dealing with the exact same thing.

It was season 6, episode 5, the middle segment of three in that episode.  It had a horse related segment in it too which was interesting.  I know I watched it free online somewhere, but can not find the link!  But if I do, I will forward it to you.  The link to the show page itself is here:

http://www.cesarsway.com/dogwhisperer/episode-archive/season-6-episode-5

It has a 3 min video synopsis of the show, but not the whole ep.

The segment with the dog who had separation anxiety was very, very informative I thought.

Good Luck.  Smiley

Contact Dr. Lisa Radosta,NOW! She is a DVM who's sole practice is as the only animal behaviorist specialist in FL and we are lucky to have here in PB county. I had multiple issues with an abused JRT and she helped make her into a happy, well adjusted girl.

a lot of dogs get nervous simply because of pent up enegy and hounds need a lot of exercise because they are high energy and vey smart. you not going to get anywhere unless you take out the time and exercise him. like going fo long walks, the dog park or playing ball. might take off  stress for both of you

I have  a friend who had the same issues with a Catahoula.  She wanted to kill herself, she was so frustrated. Didnt have that much trouble with her teenage daughter!!! The dog got over two years old and became the best dog ever.  Try some help, but dont give up.

That is a very difficult breed to train espically as puppies.my dog had severe separation anxiety as well.she became loud and destructive. Crates dint help...the vet said maybe she was lonely. I got her a kitten and shes happier than ever. If another animal is out of question I would highly socialize him with other animals. I was very impressed how it helped my dog. Also, if all else fails I've had some incredible and life changing experiences with animal communicators. Def worth a shot:) goodluck!

My puppy after two years had the sme problem.  I started giving a homeopathic remedy by Borion called "arseni album" it does help after about 20 minutes or Star of Bethlehem by Rescue Remedy.  I am not a trainer and the biggest 'sap' when it comes to animals.  I like Caesar though and agree he is great. 

I always leave on the tv when I leave the house.  Mine ike to the animal channel and also the music channel with the softest sound.  I would never entertain not leaving the tv or radio on.

Good Luck
