Change a Pet’s Life Day
January 24th is a special day set aside to encourage adoptions…
Does your dog act “over-the-top” when you come home, whether you’ve been gone five minutes or five hours? By over-the-top we mean, jumping, barking frantically, peeing on the floor or being such a velcro dog that you can hardly take a step?
When you’re getting ready to leave for work or to run errands does your dog sense your upcoming departure and start acting nervous. Does she pant, press against your leg, whine, chew or lick her own legs or have other behaviors that aren’t typical?
If you said “yes” to any of these questions or have any of these concerns with your dog’s behavior, the first thing you want to do is visit your veterinarian and have him or her check to make sure your dog is healthy. If your vet says your dog is healthy, the two of you can come up with a plan to help her with her separation anxiety.
Having a dog with separation anxiety is a frustrating and anxiety-inducing event for both her and you. Take steps to work with her to help her relax so you can relax while your running errands or away at work.
