Prevent Your Dog from Getting Separation Anxiety during COVID-19

If you are a dog owner, it is likely you have heard the term ‘separation anxiety’ before. Separation anxiety is when dogs become stressed and frantic whenever they are left home alone. There are always going to be situations where you need to leave your dog at home on their own. So, the real trick is starting early and getting your dog (or puppy) used to being left from the moment you bring them home. This way when you do need to leave the house it becomes normal and know you’ll return.

To begin, try leaving your dog in a different room, if only for a few minutes. Jessica from Cleveland Road Animal Hospital shares more tips for preparing your dog for you to go back to work or school.
