A treat or puzzle toy such as a Kong stuffed with yummy treats or even a portion of the day’s food can keep your dog occupied while you are away. Freezing the food in summer, or adding in treats that are only given when you are away can add to the challenge and help make the toy something special to look forward to.
Turning on a television or radio to a channel such as talk radio can also help by providing sounds that are familiar to your dog and may provide comfort while you are away. Many TV providers also now have “dog and cat” channels with programming designed just for pets that are home alone! Adding in a blanket or article of clothing that smells like you can also help to soothe your pet while you are away, making him feel more comfortable.
If he has been vomiting multiple times over several hours, he should be seen by a vet as soon as possible. Continued vomiting is very concerning and can lead to dehydration and electrolyte imbalance as well as low blood sugar. He might have eaten something that either disagreed with him or something that has gotten stuck somewhere in his gastrointestinal tract. He could be sore from a hidden injury you are unaware of, he could have been exposed to some sort of toxin or irritant in his environment or this could be early signs of another condition or disease process.

First, lure her into the crate with high value treats and close the crate door, then toss several treats inside the crate. During this process do not make eye contact, speak to, or hand-feed her. Toss in more treats and stand up. Then, toss in some more treats and take one step away. Return to the crate, toss more and take a few steps away. Return, toss treats, take 5 steps away. Return, toss treats, take 3 steps away. The key is to randomly change up the length of time you are gone, slowly adding and subtracting seconds. Slowly work your way out of sight. Then, quickly return, and walk out of sight but stay out of sight a few seconds. Return, toss treats, walk out of sight a few more seconds, etc. Take it slowly.
Finally, when you let her out ignore her, don’t make a big deal of it.
