Some dog’s experience separation anxiety when left alone at home and will whine and cry, urinate or defecate in the house or destroy your personal belongings. Mild cases may be managed successfully while more severe conditions may require professional help. However, some dogs suffer some kind of separation anxiety even when someone is home with them. These dogs are usually more dedicated to one human in the family rather than everyone else in the household. Thus, if that one person is away from home, your dog may act out. Try to keep your dog’s normal routine. When the favored person leaves, don’t make a fuss – just leave. Think of some special activities to do with your dog so he has some fun while their person is gone. Don’t punish or yell at your dog if he acts out during this trying time.
