"When a dog is going through separation anxiety, it involves more than just crying at the door when you leave to go to work," said Gwen Kuykendall, Owner of Kuykendall's Border Collies. "Separation anxiety is the result of real stress, and it can manifest itself in many ways."

"Even worse, these actions are not a one time thing. They can happen every time you leave the house," said Kuykendall.
Fortunately there are some ways to relieve your pet's stress.
"The first thing is to start now in conditioning your dog to adjust to the impending separation. Take some short walks outside without your pet, then upon your return, reward them by taking them for a walk on the leash, or by giving them a treat," said Kuykendall.
Separation anxiety isn't always preventable, despite your best efforts. But with patience and care, you may be able to reduce your dog's stress, and prevent the destructive behaviors it causes.
