Family members walking away from dog causing anxiety?
Here’s one for you. When we’re in our yard and house, me or my husband or daughter walking away from Kona is a non event. Go out in a public place it’s a very different story.
We’ve tried all the different combinations, results are the same, if one or two of us walk away from Kona and the current handler, she whines really loud, sometimes like a whine/bark, loses all focus and control. If one or two of us walks in front of her and current handler...she’ll pull right through even a prong trying to get to the other two.
She only really calms when we are all three back together. If only one of us takes her out, she doesn’t do this at all.
Out of curiosity, what is this? A weird separation anxiety? She has zero issues if any or all of us leave her at home. Herding behavior?
