Today, my neighbour's puppy has developed separation anxiety. Every time my neighbour leaves for work, the puppy constantly whines and barks until he gets home. He works night shifts. FML

I think most young puppies, and just puppies in general cry and whine constantly when they are left alone. They probably lack a sense of security since they're not with their mother, assuming they aren't of course.

Sounds like both you and OP's neighbor needs to train their dogs better. My dog USED to have that as a young puppy, but because I did lots of training with him, he stopped being a little whiny baby. It's not cute when that a dog acts like he can't live without you, it's a bother to everyone and it's a serious behavioral issue. It IS actually a problem, I hope you both realize.

It says nothing about op's dog having separation anxiety. The fml is about the neighbor's dog. Why does op need to learn how to train their dog? Assuming they even have a dog.

I said OP's NEIGHBOR needs to train their dog... It also says his neighbors dog "has developed separation anxiety." OP is just in the crossfire of a bad dog owner's poor decisions.

My pup done that, so we got another one to keep her company, maybe you could shove a toy through the letter box to occupy it and maybe the neighbour will get the hint too

My dog does that too, whenever my aunt leaves. It's really annoying but what are you going to do?
She always holds and treats the dog like a baby.. so if your neighbor does that, I wish you luck OP.

Tell the neighbor! Save yourself from sleep loss!

My neighbors puppy used to have that, but it receded within two weeks after he was taken to obedience classes. Ask your neighbor to do the same :)

In this situation i dont think the neighbor with the dog should pay to let his/her neighbor sleep. I think it should just be OP taking care of a neighbors dog so OP could sleep lol. I would be willing to do some taking care of a puppy at nights just for sleep in return.
