My 2 year old shiba inu seems to have developed separation anxiety within the last few weeks even though I've had him since he was a pup. He generally sleeps downstairs with three other dogs but lately he's gotten so nervous he'll find his way upstairs to sleep under my bed. I've blocked his way upstairs but he'll somehow break through. I've even crated him at night and he would tear down the crate just to get out. Yukio gets extremely nervous when I go upstairs to go to sleep and when I'm getting ready to leave the house he wants to follow me. Any ideas on what caused this sudden change and how to fix it?

This book covers it. How is the exercise? Does the dogs get exercise daily?

He doesn't get daily exercise. Would that help? He sure does sleep a lot too for a young'n. I'll look into the book. Thanks!!

Exercise is the key!! Probably has a lot of pent up energy!
