Sydney is so dependent on me.....

My friend doesnt' believe it because he's the total opposite when we are at her house. But he follows me everywhere in my apt. And at her house too, but she doesnt' think he's too dependent on me.
I get to take him most places with me, well technically I could take him everywhere, since he is a service dog. But I don't take him to the buffets and stuff like that since I have to go UP to the food,unless someone is with me so that they can hold him while I go up. Becaus eI don't think people want some extra fiber......
Well anyways if I leave him at my place he starts to cry. I have t be careful when I open the door because he is laying right there when I cme back.

Maybe you could kennel train him so he will feel more secure when you leave.

For a service dog that is pretty much the goal. Follow around incase needed.

What kind of service dog is he?

Looks like he's very attached to you. I agree with CrWoodyspets' idea, surely he can do it.

I don't really want to kennel train him, due to what has happened tohim in the past. That's wher ehe came from abreeder that kept the dogs in a kennel. It was one of those chain-link kennels, but he wasnt' happy when I saw him.
He helps me with my Anxiety/panic attacks. Right now he 's licking my arm.

Well it would help to make him more secure, if maybe you had some soothing music on a radio next to the crate with toys and blankets to make him feel safe and comfortable.

If you still don't want to crate train him (I don't really blame you in this circumstance) Maybe you could get him extra toys and things to do, because separation anxiety is basically boredom in some ways. Get your dog used to your getting ready to leave cues, like picking up keys and putting on your jacket. I am not sure how much exercise you give him, but the more the better!! Take him for extra walks, a tired dog is a good dog! You can fill a kong toy with treats and then seal off the top with peanut butter and freeze it. This way it makes it fun and takes awhile for your dog to lick the peanut butter off giving something for him to do, and keeping his mind off that you are gone, with me? If all else fails, could you bring him to a doggie day care of friends house while you are gone?

oh yeah when I go for any long period of time he is either atm y mom's house or a friends house. I am relieved that I didn't offend you.
He gets to go many places with me, but wont' take him fishing or to a amuzement park (because of the chance of hooking him (Fishing) or the lo ud noises (amusement parks))
