    how does one deal with separation anxiety. my maltipoo has extreme, extreme, extreme separtation anxiety. she has to be with me to exist. i can’t even go out into the garage without her howling. i feel sorry for her and wish i could help her to adjust to other people. i am 85 and she could be permanently separated from me and i find that is very worrisome. she loves my daughter and goes crazy when she sees her but i have to be in the picture too.
