Well Riley has sever seperation anxiety, and it is only with me even if people are home he is distraught, he ate my front door the other day so I am looking for some training methods to help this poor guy. I am purchasing a crate but am inhopes that some day he will not need it. Please help us because it kills me when he is upset.

You need to let him stay in his crate and not eat doors... even if it kills you. He will never get over it unless you remain strong and keep him in the crate regardless of the noise.

SA can be worked on. There are several threads on here with alot of advice. Try using the search feature and search for separation anxiety

He's an adult, recently rescued off the streets in really bad shape by a couple of girls and then adopted by cagirl.
