Welcome to Separation Anxiety in Dogs Resource
Your dog tries to block you from leaving the house. As soon as you close the door, he howls and barks non-stop. When you return, not only are you bombarded with licking and being jumped on by a hyperactive dog, you notice that while you were gone he has ripped apart the carpet, scratched the paint off the door and urinated on the carpet – there’s a good chance he/she is suffering from canine separation anxiety.

Sometimes this bond between a dog and his owner becomes dependent; and separation can lead to confusion, anger and panic. If ignored, canine separation anxiety can cause a major problem.
