Hi DL, from what you say above it sounds like the 'terrible twins' (love that!) are suffering from separation anxiety. The difference between demanding behaviour and SA is that the dog is ONLY destructive when the owner is absent. This is not something i can deal with on the forum, far too involved, so i would suggest you get hold of a canine behaviourist to assist you. i am putting up an article on this subject on my Friends website, but only for end next month - sorry - hav'nt finished it yet. Just google canine behaviour consultant and you will come to the ABC of SA site and look there. Do attend to this as soon as you can because it will only get worse. Good luck, easy to sort out but takes a lot of time and consistancy and commitment. thanks Scotty
