What is Separation Anxiety?

Separation Anxiety is a heartbreaking condition which causes your dog to experience panic when they are left home alone.

Your dog may be suffering from Separation Anxiety if they show some or all of the following common signs:

✔ Destruction of furniture or other chewing when left home alone or away from you

✔ Continuous barking during any period left home alone

✔ Toilet accidents indoors, despite your dog being housetrained

✔  Shaking, pacing or anxiety before you leave your home

✔ Frantic attempts to escape from crate or house when owner leaves

A dog may be suffering from anxiety but not exhibit the behaviours identified above. They may show some other signs of fear e.g. Licking, Panting, drooling or pacing.

If this sounds like your dog, it’s important to know that it’s not your fault and that your dog isn’t being naughty, they simply cannot help the behaviour.

How long does it take?
It depends! We are all individuals. Sadly, there is no quick fix with separation related problem behaviours, as we are dealing with emotions.
Is it my fault?
No! Separation related behaviours are extremely difficult to diagnose as they can be similar to other unwanted behaviours They can be triggered by various situations. e.g. a change in the owner’s pattern or the dog could be predisposed due to their genetic makeup.
