Hi there, I have a 2 year old shepherd mix named Rocky. We adopted him in October from animal control and saved him from being used. Since we have had him, we have noticed a lot of behavioral issues. First, he has severe separation anxiety, if you go in another room and close the door he will sit there and cry. Second, when we leave, whether it be for 20 minutes or 4 hours, he lifts his leg and pees outside of his crate. We have to crate him because when we left him out before he tore up our carpet and door trim. We have tried downsizing his cage and all and he still does it. Another issue he has is whenever we take him somewhere that he's not familiar with, his behavior is TERRIBLE. When we take him to the vet, groomer, for a walk, passing other dogs/people on walks, etc. the minute we walk in he will not stop barking and jumping. Last time we took him to the vet he literally barked the whole time to the point where they said next time we should sedate him. He also has a huge jumping problem, whenever he gets excited he will me stop jumping on you. He had a dog trainer come to the house for a couple months, but he only knows things such as sit, lay, paw, etc. but still has horrible behavior. Help!rnThank you,rnRachel
