Separation-anxiety is extremely stressful for those who suffer from it!
Our pets have no idea why we need to leave home for extended periods each day. We also aren’t able to tell them that we’ll definitely be back again, so during the long hours that they’re alone for each day, dogs who battle with this horrible affliction will wait for their family to return home, focusing on little else. Sometimes out of panic and worry they’ll resort to vocal or destructive behaviours in order to try cope with their stress.
If your dog suffers from separation-anxiety, please get him or her some help! You’ll be doing your best friend a great favour!
