Okay~first I have to say that I am EXHAUSTED after moving stuff and then going Christmas shopping!!!!

But, I brought Pippit to the new apartment(there's nothing in it and it echos and everything) First thing out of the car, my neighbor(without his German Sheppard)is there. I have treats ready and hand him one. Pippit does well~NO BARKING.:cheer2: Then we go inside and Pippit is really unsure and nervous. I leave him in the apartment with my dad and go to the car to get something. I can hear him barking and crying until I get back(thank goodness it was the middle of the afternoon) I set him up with a few toys and he seemed okay.

Then the noises started. He barked. I told him quiet and gave him treats when he was. He eventually settled down a bit~~but I think I have a long road ahead of me. Wish me luck!!! I'm planning on taking him for short periods of time every day.

Karen, I'm sure it will get better this is all so new to him. Good idea for lots of short visits to the new place. I think Pippit might be picking up on your nervousness too, just stay calm, cool and collective. I know, easier said then done but I know you and it will all work out. I'm sure other members will have great advice for you.
