Tanuki puppah , originally uploaded by angyl . He had a poo, so I decided to let him follow me around and nap at my feet rather than crate him for now. Gif had clingy anxiety at first, but he got over it pretty fast when I let him follow me around so he knew I wasn't leaving him when I went in the other room. I think he'll be easier to crate when I'm not fighting separation anxiety too. It's slowly helping him de-clingy; he'll let me leave the room without following half the time now.
