My girlfriend and I picked up Macey, a 2 month year old Kelpie x Cattledog (unconfirmed) last Sunday - Today was the first day we both were at work and it will be a regular occurrence where we are both not here. We are currently living with my girlfriends parents in an attached granny flat, eagerly awaiting the completion of our house build. Today, Macey was quite good, quiet and amusing herself until about 1pm and then the howling apparently started, to which she was put outside for a play with Molly, the bigger dog of the house for a play (and to try and tire her out), she settled until about 3 after this where she apparently began howling too loud to ignore.
So, my question is.. Does anybody have any suggestions for helping Macey deal with 'puppy loneliness' whilst we are at work, without there being too much input from other people here in the house.
