My German Shepherd suffers from separation anxiety and has tried to eat her way through a metal door. We’ve since then started crating her, but she never relaxes. So I was thinking about making an app that does the following:
When in away mode, the motion sensors will detect movement. If there is movement and the door is vibrating (because she’s scratching at it) then play a recording of me in another room. Once motion is detected in that room, play the same recording in a different room. It will do this for every room once to keep her trying to find me. After motion is detected in every room, play my voice in the kitchen which will disperse a treat as a reward. Then repeat the process if she scratches at the door again.
The goal is to get her mind off of us being gone. If she’s playing hide and seek with virtual me, she won’t be eating our house.
What’s your thoughts on this? Do you think this will make things worse or better?
