Hi. I contacntly feel guilty when I leave my dogs at home. And I think I then overcompensate for being away with treats and attention. I think they are getting too much attention, but they are so lovable and caring. It's 2 Jack Russels. Girls. When I got them at first they always wanted to do their own thing. After I left them with my Sister for 3 months whille settling in PTA they have become clingy. In the beginnning I would give them Beeno's when I left for work. Now they get the Woolies doft food over their pellets when I leave because I'm feeling so guilty about leaving them. What should I do. They will never survuve without me. And I think I won't without them It's amazing how therapeutic a dog can be for a person. I could have ahd such a bad day, but when they cuddle in front of the television with me I feel so much better.
