If you have destructive behaviour, howling or barking, digging, chewing or maybe even inappropriate pottying all when you're not home? You might be dealing with separation anxiety. This describes a dog who struggles when left alone or when they are separated from a particular member of the family. It can be a condition that has a genetic basis but worsens over time and can be combined with other issues such as reactivity, storm phobia or generalised anxiety.
Luckily there are many things we can do to help them feel better and more able to cope.
You know they need help, but how?
