Poodlekid is now almost 11 months old and we have had a great and peaceful last two or three months. We were done with teething and mouthing for the most part. Toilet training is complete and we have settled into a nice routine. BUT now all of a sudden we are revisiting all out worst behaviors for another spin that evidently require new solutions. Problem one was screaming - which had been dealt with and has been modified into muttering and whining which we are working on. Problem two is now all of sudden a new version of separation anxiety. Louie doesn't like staying behind (who does) but while he used to holler for about 30 seconds and then be fine he now hollers for the length of the stay and makes an insane fuss when we actually leave (that's the new thing). I am switching up routines - I have put on my boots twice without going anywhere - I keep switching my keys from place to place and I will install a gate to restrict his access to the hall way. He had the run of the Living Room for about two months (maybe too soon) - when he stayed alone - which seemed fine because he was chill and didn't chew or soil or any other behavior, BUT I may have inadvertently given him control over the hallway and therefor the front door and therefor who comes and goes. So back to the kitchen for him during alone time. I have consulted my training books and this seems most likely to be the culprit. Such complicated little creatures these Poodles! I have a strategy in place but I still marvel at the complexity of the Poodle Psyche!
