I bet you look like a RAISIN when you get out!

J/ all seriousness...

How old is Rylee again?

I don't have a good answer for the poo...maybe instead of smaller like we usually say to keep the area, maybe he needs a bigger area if he knows to go on the pad, but then is stepping in it. He needs a separate area for pad/laying etc.
Is the play pen small enough to take it in the bathroom with you? Or put it where he can hear you and you can talk to him some to help calm him?

You are right about needing to get the separation anxiety out of him before you go back to don't need to be worrying about him while you are in school.
I would suggest short trips and lots of praise when you come back in...let him know you will always come back. Closer to school starting you should wean him to staying alone that long if nobody will be with him during the day. He will eventually get used to the routine of different days.

Brink can tell the difference in work/school days, and weekends...and church nights and ball game nights...he usually knows when he is going and when to assume his perch on the back of the chair...Rylee will get it too...give him time...

well, first: its totally normal whats happening.

and try to look for some toys that rylee would LOVE, and then only give it to him when he's going to be alone. it will help keep him entertained. and also get him REALLY tired!! walk him a lot and play w/ him a lot before you need to leave him alone. he'll hopefully sleep while youre gone. :D
I remember last summer when Prissy had 5 pups and we kept them in a large pen when we couldnt watch them. The playing in poop is just a puppy thing. You just have to worry about one I had five it was a chore to keep them clean.

Shiner has bg sep problem. I was told you cant come to them when they cry that is what they want. start with short breaks 1 min them come back and say hi and you should always say the same thing when you leave. I say " I'll be back" grab your purse or what ever you do that shows you going. leave and come back only when he isnt crying. You can slowly increase you time away. Dont let him thank that he will get his way. only praise and reward when quiet even if for a brief moment. Try this for a week or so and see if it helps if not I will be glad you help you with more advice. They will gett better with age just be supportive and loving and take lots of pics I regreted not getting enough pics of prissy.

Oh and I agree with cathy about the play thing. PLAY PLAY PLAY

I had the same problem with Kodie... I tried what sassy14830 has suggested! It worked out GREAT! I leave in the morning and Kodies fine.
I come home for lunch and again... just fine when I leave.
The only problem now is when I get home from work... its hard for me to go back out of the house without him... he doesnt wanna be alone again after being alone for 8hrs.

Thanks you guys.. i'll try that and hopfully it works.. i've already tried to play with him and keep him up before i go.. he goes to sleep when i'm in there and then when i leave and he sees i'm not comin back.. liek 5 min later..... he crys ( i tried it yesterday when i had to go to the dentist for a 1 & 30 min ).... so i'll try the other thing that tlunn and sassy said... sounds like it may actually wor.. but who knows.. i finally got him to sleep through the night by inorging him when he wakes up and crys in the middle of the night!

When I first got Bella I found out that she would cry every time I left the house, but eventually I figured out that I had to act really happy when I left and not make a big deal out of it. You might already be doing that though, so I don't have a lot of advice. With Bella, she took on more of a protector role as she grew up and now she kind of likes being the one in charge while I'm gone. But you know what, I shouldn't be trying to help you with this one, because I take hour long baths too, and bella takes a nap right beside the tub!

bullysticks too!!! try going to a petstore (my petsmart doesnt sell them...but petco does) and buy those thick hard bully sticks (like 12inch stick)...and only give it to him when you leave. and praise him. and he can only have it when your'e gone. so dont use it often. he'll LOVE them.

check out the bullystick thread. they take forever to eat and i've been giving them to gruffi since he was 5 weeks old.
