We just got a german shepherd puppy on Christmas eve and she has been dealing with some separation anxiety. Whenever I leave the room, even if someone is with her she will cry and whimper until I return. However, today while we were out, we came home to find she had been screaming and my mom walked in and she was chewing on her paws(self inflicting pain, I suppose). My question is what are some things I can do to keep her calm while we're away and what are some methods that have worked for you. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
This is our little princess, Riley
