Dr. Suzanne Hetts
One of the most common complaints that dog owners have is that their dogs cause problems when they are left alone. They bark, destroy things, house soil or escape from the property and cause headaches for the owners and their neighbors. These problems can be caused by a variety of different causes, from boredom to separation anxiety. The causes are often very different from what owners think they are, because they are NOT due to spite, revenge or just “acting out.” In addition, Many dogs are labeled as having “separation anxiety” when in fact they do not.
Discover how to tell what’s motivating your dog’s home alone problems, and what actions you can take to solve them. Even if your dog doesn’t have any home alone “issues”, you’ll find out ways to enrich his home alone time so he can be happier by himself.
