We have now been in lock down for just over 5 weeks and our dogs have been enjoying every moment of having us at home.
Dogs are very social animals so having us around during the day is a real bonus for our dogs and we're sure you have enjoyed seeing them happy too – even if they have interrupted the odd video call!
Their normal routines have changed overnight, from seeing you leave for work and then patiently waiting for you to come home. But it is now time for us to think about the potential problems that this may cause in the future. If you have rescued your dog or had them from a puppy you may or may not have witnessed separation anxiety at some point.
Separation anxiety can come in various different forms from barking, destruction, toileting or self harm. We want to give you some tips to help avoid your dog becoming anxious when you start going back to work which you can start in your home today.
Take a look at our leaflet below for the full tips on how to help your dog with separation anxiety. Our team are also on hand to answer any questions you might have on this subject.
