Dogs can suffer from separation anxiety when their owner is away for a while. This is how the dog acts when its owner is away. Dogs will display symptoms like excessive salivation, winning, barking, and destruction of items, including scratching walls and floors and trying to escape.
Take your dog for a walk
You can reduce anxiety by taking your dog on a walk. The dog will be able to eat and rest if you make the walk harder. When you're away, this will leave your dog in a resting or quiet mode.
Avoid eye contact or touch
Don't tell your dog when you are going to be away or when you will be back. This helps the dog to understand that you are not doing anything wrong if you go away for a while. Dogs will be able to communicate this by disappearing for at least an hour before or after you leave.
Be Goodbye Before You Leave
Show your dog affection before you leave the house. Dogs will associate affection with leaving.
Remain Calm And Assertive
Let your dog know that you are willing to go to work and that everything will be fine. If you show confidence, this can help. You can be assertive and lessen separation anxiety.
Take some time to leave the dog
This can be done in a very small way. You can leave the dog for a while, then return and take your time. This should be done regularly until your dog understands that you are not there.
Separation anxiety is a serious problem, but with the help of professionals, you can hopefully resolve the problem.
