Hi, I have recently got a 10 month old Belgian Malinois through a friend who needed desperately rehoming due to neglectful circumstances being left permanently outside and on his own. We have had him since Sunday afternoon (06/08/2023) He has become immediately attached to me being the only female in the house. Every time I move, he follows me (which isn’t the problem) He just can’t be without me and if this isn’t a detachment disorder YET, I don’t want it becoming one. He is currently living with myself, my boyfriend and my elderly father. As long as one of us are in the room with him, he’s not too bad and settled quite quickly. Another issue I want to address is: We have tried on several occasions to get him to sleep alone downstairs is virtually impossible, as soon as we shut the door he cries and won’t settle AT ALL. We have tried leaving him for 10-15 minutes but the crying gets progressively worse and I have googled and every answer says I can not ignore him crying. We have tried then bringing him upstairs with us and it still takes him an awful long time to settle even though he is with me, jumping on and off the bed, pacing up and down and panting. We have been back in work today (8am-6pm) and he has been with my dad all day and he’s been perfectly fine. We’ve got home, spent some time with him and closed the door on him in a separate room being the living room, left him for 20 minutes and completely out of character he has grabbed things off the coffee table and started ripping it apart (like paperwork and parcels) Any help with the above issues would be greatly appreciated or any advice in order to resolve him being without me and potentially sleeping downstairs on his own?
