2) Keep lights on.
One mistake that owners make is leaving in the morning when it is nice and sunny; they don't turn light on. But, as the day goes by, it can get stormy out and/or an owner may not return home until the sun is setting.
When a Pomeranian is home alone and already struggling with the isolation, being in a house that is getting dark only exasperates things. So, leave on a few lights to offer a more comforting environment.
3) Don't keep the house dead silent.
Most Pomeranians with separation anxiety do much better when they have some pleasant background noise. This can be a TV or it can be a radio. However, finding the right channel or station can be tricky, because you cannot be sure of the content of the commercials.
We have recently discovered a wonderful alternative. And this is music created specifically for canine ears. These CD's, MP3 or streaming albums are filled with songs (and/or speech and other noises) to both keep a dog calm and help make him feel not so alone (more ahead).
