My part chihuahua/fox terrior has social anxiety really bad. I have tried everything. I just ordered your product and was wondering what else I could do, he barks and scratches/tears at carpet by the door. I got him from a homeless pet facility in 2010. He only does it when I leave and am gone. My vet is gone and won't be back until Mar 11. I work night shifts and 12 hour shifts. Thank you for your time -Peggy-

Dear Peggy,

You can also leave classical music on the radio to divert his attention. Diet can also affect behavior. What do you feed him including treats? Artificial preservatives and colors are good to avoid. I like a non GMO diet. Besides Anxietrex, Chillout Chews team up well with it.

I would also crate him when you are away. However, get him acquainted with it in short periods of time. Give him a special treat when he goes inside. Feeding inside the crate also helps make the dog like it better. Many dogs feel safer in their cave. You might also have a trainer come to your house for fine tuning your routine.

Best regards,
