Whilst challenging to live with a dog that suffers from separation anxiety, there are ways to manage the issue and help your dog to cope. It is surprisingly common and manifests in a variety of ways, so dealing with dog separation anxiety is something many dog owners have to tackle at some point.
An anxious dog finds life difficult. Unlike a confident, well-balanced dog, he cannot make sense of his world. Your anxious dog has not developed the coping strategies that many dogs have naturally. It’s not all about socialization either.
