Do you have an anxious dog when you leave the house? Separation anxiety is one of the most common dog problems suffered by owners and their nervous dogs.
It’s a good idea to treat dog anxiety as soon as you can. Why? An anxious dog does not usually just ‘get better’. Often the separation anxiety will worsen to the point where the dog can become very distressed, barking, and causing destruction in the home. Neighbours may complain about your dog, and you may find doors damaged and floors ripped up as your dog becomes desperate.
So, how to treat separation anxiety? How to help your dog? And more importantly, how to make an unhappy and distressed dog feel calm and even happy when you are not there.
In this WildPaw podcast, Karen and Jon discuss the needs of the anxious dog, ways to help the dog learn to be left alone and to help calm the dog.
