How do I treat separation anxiety in my dog?

All dogs may suffer from a difficult separation anxiety. They are very attached and connected to their owner. But there are situations, where you have to leave your furry pet for a long time.

What should you do with a dog? First of all, you have to teach your dog to handle the separation. It would be better to start this training when your dog is still a puppy. Leave your pet alone for a couple of minutes at the beginning, then gradually increase this time up to 2-3 hours. When you have to leave, give your dog a command like "I'll come back soon" and give it something tasty. If a dog is very upset because of loneliness, you can adopt a second animal. Create something interesting for the dog at the time of your absence. You can leave the TV on to create an atmosphere of presence in the house. The sound of the TV or the radio gives the animal a feeling of comfort.

If the dog is still very upset about separation, then you should contact your veterinarian, who can prescribe it some medications to quell the fear.
