I should know better by now. It takes at least two to three weeks for a dog to destress from moving into a new home. This is an excerpt from the website profile for him:
He really is just a good dog, one you don't ever have to worry about.
|Such a handsome mountain dog.|
|What a slinky.|
|He is quite the athlete!|
He does howl when we leave the house (the howl comes from the Husky with whom he used to live). I will be leaving a frozen Kong full of goodies to keep him busy. It's all about him learning the routine of a new home. It's a lot to take on for any dog to be removed from a home of a number of years into a new one.
As for Zeetie, I am so proud of her. I've kept him out of the bedroom since she has warned him off on a few occasions. When I came out of the bathroom, and this is only on the morning of day 3, no Jasper to be seen. I walked to the bedroom and there he was, wandering around in there. No reaction from Zeetie who was in her place on the bed. I think she has put a 'No Threat' sign around his neck which certainly makes life easier for us.
