|viking||I used the DAP diffuser that plugs into a wall outlet. Didn't need it anymore after a few months. Worked for us. My boy is a cool, calm and collected now when I have to leave him for a few hours. They also have a liquid you can apply to his bedding but not directly on the dog. Relatively inexpensive and unobtrusive fix if it works for you.|

Rescue Remedy is probably what you are thinking of to put in the water. You could try a DAP collar as well.
I'm sure you've left Saleen alone in the time you have had her. Was there ever a problem before? Is this behavior something new that has come about since you started packing and stressing over moving? Can you contain her to a room with tile or linoleum?

Is this the first time that you left the dog alone for two hours? What did she do in the past.
Peeing in two places and drinking out of a toilet is a small problem. Certainly not something to dump the dog for. Was she maybe upset because of a thunderstorm?

|huntergreen||there may may be over the counter stuff that will calm her, but not in this case. imho, you need to deal with the separation issue and retrain for the crate.|

well we really can`t use a buddy for SALEEN and we use to crate her a few yrs back - she would bend the cage and tear up her mouth getting out - so no solutions yet - i heard there is a liquid you put on her food that calms her down , anyone use this

Have a problem dog? Get another.
Get a pet for your dog.
You will generally not hear the above mentioned advice much here.
How can she protect if she is restrained?
Well, did you train the dog to protect? Most of us just need a deterrent. Even within a crate, the booming barks of a GSD can send a would-be burglar somewhere else.
Dogs with SA are a danger to themselves. They can eat things that could kill them. They can go through windows to get to their person. They can do enough damage, that people may give up in despair. When, a crate could have kept the dog safe. The crate does not have to be permanent. If the dog becomes less anxious with time, it may be ok to give the dog some more freedom.
I know some places culturally, have a different view of crates. But for dogs with problems, they can be a life saver.
