Sorry...I forgot about the second part of my post....How long before 11 week old Bichon stops crying everytime we leave him alone? Gets lots of attention when we are home in the evening...follows me everywhere...He is crated during the day and at bed time.
As young as he is maybe you will luck out on the seperation anxiety. We have 3 grown mini schnauzers that beat it through the doggie door everytime we leave, and sit at the gate howling. They sit there all in a row with heads back howling to the top of their lungs.
