Separation anxiety is incredibly common in dogs, and can even occur with cats too. But that doesn’t make it any less stressful on you or your furry friend.
Any pet can suffer from separation anxiety, including those who seem otherwise well-adjusted. A little bit of whining when you’re heading out the door is okay — and even to be expected — but in some cases, separation leads to serious behavioral problems that can cause a lot of anxiety for both pet and pet parent when it’s time to be apart.
The good news is that separation anxiety is usually quite treatable, and with a plan and some consistent action you can take steps to relieve your pet’s stress at being alone and make life a whole lot easier for everyone. To get you there, we’ve put together some helpful tips for dealing with your pet’s separation anxiety and getting them on the right path.
