wildwolf60 For separation anxiety, this has helped me in the past:

Crate training, and you put her in the crate, calmly, no excited voices, as matter of factly as possible. Don't give in to he cries, or whatever she does. Walk away, leave the house so she knows you are gone. Wait about 10 minutes, then come back and let her out as calmly as possible. When she is calm, praise her and play with her, or give her a treat.
Do this at odd intervals as much as possible, until she realizes that you will always come home.
You can increase the time you are gone, and also vary the time frame. Once she figures it out, she should be ok.
We had one shepherd female that was quite anxious while we were gone, and we did this. Also gave her a milk bone when we left, thru the crate, as we told her, bye, behave! We did this for a while and she got over it. We also laughed a lot around her, and acted like it was a happy occasion when crating her too. Once she got over the separation anxiety, we were able to leave her loose on the house and she never destroyed anything, or made any messes. She was a perfect angel. Good luck!
And your dog looks like a German shepherd, if mixed with anything at all, it doesn't really show much. But her nails look like they need trimmed!

MichaelE He might just be a fawn colored GSD. My last GSD Ossie was a fawn GSD.

To give a little insight she is a female, about 2.5 years old, very, very loyal, loves the daughter, loves to follow us as owners everywhere around the house, and suffers from separation anxiety very badly from us as owners. She is very alert and actually opens the blinds and looks out herself and alerts to the slightest of noise outside, however we're in the process of trying to get her over separation anxiety and barking when leaving the house. In the meantime, it would be great if someone could point me in the right direction of what my baby could be mixed with!

Here are some pictures! It's obvious by the face, ears, and mouth/nose structure that she has GS in her, but the blonde/cream color is throwing me off and leading me to wonder what else could be in her!
I see a mix. Possible Mal mix or GSD mix. But not pure. Cute though: )

Gretchen She does not look GSD to me, maybe more Malinois instead of GSD, but not 100% more like 50%.

Stevenzachsmom A few suggestions....

1. Get her good and tired, before you leave the house. (Long walk, play ball, etc.)

2. Leave the radio or television on.

3. Crate her, when you are gone, so she can't see outside and has a safe place to be.

4. Thundershirt

5. Calming Pheromone Spray

grassbusterdesigns Thank you guys for the help. Seeing that you guys are long time GS Owners would you guys happen to have any suggestions for me on the separation anxiety? We're having an issue with ours barking. Of coarse she alerts when anything is outside, but it seems she likes to stick her head around the blinds and bark every time we leave or start the car in the drive way. We left the house late the other night and came back the next day with our neighbor telling us the neighbors behind us called the cops out because she was barking (because we were away). Our neighbor then proceeded to tell us the officers were about to kick in the door or break in the house because they thought someone might be inside injured or hurt. I'm assuming that was because they we're called and trying to knock on the door and getting no response and one of our vehicles was parked in front of the door.

We're starting to change our habits after I did some reading, such as ignoring her when we walk in the house for the first ten minutes or so so she's not always excited for us to get home. Also no treats when we first return. I was thinking about ordering a training collar (not a shock) but looking for one that beeps with the high pitched noise and vibrates. Any other ideas?
