I am trying to figure out how to post a pic of my lab?? SHe is a great dog but has one problem, she has seperation anxiety. She will do anything for food, so she opens cabinets and doors of all kinds to find food when we are not home! anyone have any ideas how to stop this?? I cant leave her at anyones house without us!! I have to lock her in our basement when we are gone. We had to turn the door knob around on the basement door so the lock is on the outside so I can lock her in, otherwise she opens the door somehow with her mouth! Ideas from others would be great!
Welcome! She's a cutie.
Have you thought about crating her? I had a dog with separation anxiety and the crate was her best friend. It kept her and my house safe. That crate was her safe haven and our saving grace.

Thanks for the suggestion of using a crate but believe me there is no crate that would hold her! we tried a couple different ones but she manages to break out of themm she is far better than Houdini ever was!!! The basement works good for when we are home but if we go overnight somewhere we can leave her in the persons home alone,!! ughh not even with other dogs around she ignores them and gets into trouble!. I usually bribe my granddaughters to watch her if we leave their house, ughhhhh
