Separation Anxiety in Dogs

Advertisement

One of the most frequent pet owners’ complaints is that their dogs can be destructive or disruptive when alone at home. Dogs may vomit, defecate, bark, chew, or attempt to flee. While these behaviours typically indicate that the Dog must learn proper behaviour in the house, they could be stress indicators. If a dog’s issues are coupled with other signs of distress like drooling or experiencing anxiety as his parents get ready to leave, They aren’t an indication that the pet isn’t trained or doesn’t understand which toys belong to him. They are instead signs that the Dog is suffering from separation anxiety. Separation anxiety is often triggered by angry dogs due to being separated from human caregivers or the people they love. Dogs with separation anxiety tend to Escape, which can be extreme and may result in self-injury or destruction to the house, particularly around exit points, such as doors and windows.
Dogs with separation anxiety get anxious when their Owners are preparing to depart. Some dogs are anxious or depressed before their owners’ departure or even when they aren’t around. They may try to stop their owner from departing. Typically, after an animal’s owner leaves a dog anxious about separation, the Dog begins barking and displays other signs of distress within a short amount of time after being left on its own, often within minutes. After the owner has returned home, the Dog behaves as if it’s been years since he’s last seen him
