Does your dog constantly whine, dig, and destroy items around the house when you’re not home? That could be because your dog is experiencing anxiety from fear of abandonment, separation and aging. Sometimes the source of anxiety comes from external environmental shocks such as loud noises, strangers, and car rides. Sometimes it can be caused by a change of guardian, change in schedule, change in residence, or change in household membership.
Sometimes dogs, especially puppies, misbehave because they have more energy than they know what to do with. If a puppy chews the leg of a chair, it doesn’t necessarily mean they have separation anxiety — but it may mean they need a good teething toy.
As a dog lover, it is difficult not to adore all types of dogs, big or small. However, we all have our preferences for various reasons. For example, it might be hard to raise a Great Dane in a studio apartment. Nevertheless, no matter what type of dog your furbaby is, we understand the power they have to capture your heart.
