So my new 4 month old puppy and I have been inseperable since I got him about 2 months ago. He's been pretty much an angel, but still a rambuncious little baby.
I take him everywhere with me. To work, for car rides, and walks. I even have him sleep in my bed along with my chihuahua.
The only problem is that he recently started howling whenever I leave him. I feel like it's a little late in the game for him to suddenly have anixety because he was fine prior a week and a half ago. I can't even go into the garage and shut the door without him starting to how if I don't come back 15 seconds later.

I've tried to ignore him and I have no idea how long he carries on once I leave the house. I'm fine with him howling if a garbage truck drives by or if he hears something, just not every time I'm away. Any advice?

Sounds like he needs some training to be separated from you since you have him with you so much throughout the day. Start with small departures, like out to the mailbox, a walk up the street etc. When you leave, give him a toy and/or treat and just say calmly "be right back" or something like that. The more you go in and out, and remain calm each time, he will get used to your leaving. You can leave a TV or radio on too. Is he with your other dogs when you leave? He will learn to rely on them too as his family.
