Marley doesn’t get a big performance when we leave or return. Everything goes pretty smoothly. When we come home he just prances around like he’s done nothing wrong. After 10 – 15 minutes we take him to whatever he’s torn up, scold him and sometimes he gets a pat on the hiney. (you can say anything you want to about that but I know what works in discipline for my dog) After that’s done, he gets a lot of love and our day finishes as normal. Music/TV hasn’t worked. But thank you for your story!
