Guest Bagel Posted April 14, 2016 Share Posted April 14, 2016 For the first month, my 2 1/2 year old boy was okay being left alone for up to about 6 hours (long enough for my class days, or a night shift). However, about a week and a half ago, he was bitten on the snout by a little dog (very very minor, hardly bled), and after having left him home alone that night, I came back to him crying & my dirty clothes hamper thrown all over the house. Since then, he's been having real trouble when I leave - even if it's just to the backyard for 10 minutes. My next door neighbor works at home and is very understanding, and let's me know whenever he's been crying. I've been trying different things - frozen bone, frozen Kong, crate, no crate, dirty clothes for scent, always TV or radio, and still he's having a hard time. Today, I came home and he had somehow opened the back door which leads to the utility room, scratched at the walls, peed in the kitchen, and he's been crying since I left for class. I need help.
