    I've seen those treats and I bought them. The vet even gave my mom a slip for sedatives. She threw them all out. She refuses to give the dog any sedatives and I cannot for the life of me figure out why. We've had her for a year and she's getting worse, so I don't understand why she sees the sedatives as cruel and not the panic the dog is constantly in.

    Have you tried taking her for a walk. Your mom might try this before she leaves, this way she won't have so much energy.
    You might try a dog trainer that specializes in getting rid of unwanted behavior.
    Have you ever seen the show "Dog Whisperer" on National Geographic Channel? I feel he has some good ideas.
    As for a electronic collar, I'm not sure it would be the best thing for a dog in her state of mind.

    Have you started watching "Dog Whisperer" on the National Geographic channel, yet?

    Definitely separation anxiety. Dr. Phil had a show on that topic. Dog would go bonkers when the owner left to go to work, practically destroyed the house during the daytime.

    Your dog needs anti anxiety medication, not sedatives. First reduce the emotional stress, and then focus on the training. Think about it...You get stressed over something, and the last thing you need is anyone telling you what to do. Dogs aren't any different in this regard . A calm person or animal is much eaiser to train, and the training will stick much better. Beating, shooting, tying up outside....what does this teach the animal. Not a damn thing. Reduce the anxiety, and then find a training technique that works. There are as many ways to train a dog as there are opinions.
