Separation anxiety is unfortunately not uncommon.
Observable behaviors might include:
- Whining, barking, and howling
- Destructive chewing, particularly door, and window frames
- Attempts to escape any containment area
- Urinating and defecating inappropriately
These and other behaviors happen when left alone or sometimes even only if a particular family member leaves or when sleeping separated from the rest of the family.
Teaching the dog to be more confident and optimistic can play a big role in helping them overcome their anxiety. I can help you analyze how you can start turning around this frustrating situation. I will support you through this process and replace the worry with practical and goal-oriented advice. Please choose a Comprehensive Behavior Consultation to address this behavior issue successfully.
