We rent the top part of out three story home. Our tenants just rescued a dog, adult dog looks like a beagle/pug mix. I'm happy they've gone and rescued a dog, but he has seperation anxiety and barks/howls while they are gone (most of the time). Hubby is getting very frustrated and wants to let them know that they need to deal with it, or else. I'd like to help them out and would hate for them to give him up, his chances of for re-adoption are probably not great, but I don't know what I could offer, or how to approach it without it looking like I'm budding in their business. I'm not that close to them, met them the first time they moved in, end of August, and that was it, and I haven't met the dog, only saw them waking him through the window. The dog is severely overweight, I'm not sure how much exercise he gets. I'm pretty certain that he's not crate trained since I can hear him roam through out the apartment while they are out. I do have a crate to offer them if this could work. I often hear her yell no bark to him, in a frustrated tone. She also mentioned to hubby that she wants to get him a shock collar, which I know will aggravate his anxiety. Any help would be grateful.
