Dog Separation Anxiety (20).pdf
What causes separation anxiety in
• Dogs are pack animals, and there is a direct attachment
between them and their masters. Because of this, when you
leave your home, your dog may feel nervous at the thought of
your impending absence.
• When you give your cute and cuddly friend too much
attention before leaving the house, and then give them lavish
attention once again upon your arrival back home, and this
routine goes on day after day, over and over, this can actually
reinforce separation anxiety in your dog. Why? Because your
dog associates this type of lavish affection with you leaving
him all alone, probably for hours at a time.
