As a few of you know, Magnus has been very anxious being left alone since we moved house.
I posted a story showing him barking non stop for 3 hours... So so so anxious, poor pup. And poor neighbors!
And said neighbors have also told us that he's been better lately - so today we decided to film him again when we headed out.
So we were out for almost 3 hours, and this was how he behaved today.
So calm.
Sure, he got up a few times, whined and barked, but went back to sleep. What a difference!
We took an hours walk this morning, were home for two hours before leaving, didn't give him any calming stuff or had a bark collar on or anything. He was just him. โ™ฅ
Thanks for all the support and suggestions, we're crossing our fingers that it'll keep going in this direction now! ๐Ÿพ

โš  HELP โš 
We moved 2.5 week ago, and before this we have never had any issues with leaving Magnus alone at home. Sure, the occasional bark and howl once in a month or two, but that's it.
Now, in our new house, he barks and howls non stop when left alone.

We had him locked up in his 'room' at our last place, and it worked fine but when we moved, we let him be out with access to the ground floor (living room, dining area & kitchen).
Resulted in barking, destroyed sunscreen and destroyed mosquitonet.
Decided to try to use the laundry as a new 'room' for him. Same as in the old place.
But it doesn't make any difference.
We filmed him one day after our neighbors told us that he obviosly don't like being left alone, to see how bad it actually was..
In 3 hours, he was quiet for maybe 10 minutes. Constant barking and occasionally chewing the gate.
We have tried with calm drops.
Ultrasonic bark collar.
Advil plugged in the wall.
Rescue Remedy.
Music/TV/sound.
Dark house.
Lights on.
.. Some days he seems to be OK, other days he starts a few minutes after we leave home. Sometimes he's whining for ages before start barking, and sometimes he just barks.

Yes, he's well exercised before we leave. No, he don't care for toys that's left with him.

Any suggestions on how to make him stop?
All we want is for him to relax when we're not at home.. #help #magnusthegreat #anxious #harlequin #notadalmatian #tiny #greatdane #dwarfdane #bigpaws #droopyface #auroradane #gentlegiant #thetypicalgreatdane #danesdoitbetter #poorneighbors #dogsofbrunswick #greatdanesofmelbourne #greatdanesofaustralia #danesdownunder #greatdanesofinstagram #instadane #greatdanesunleashed

Doesn't matter if we bring one of the awesome, superbouncy balls we got at home.. if he finds a ball in the park that's left behind from someone else - that's the one he play with. Especially if it's chewed on, slobbery and covered in dirt....
