Ease Your Puppy’s Separation Anxiety
By the Editors of Exceptional Canine for Exceptional Canine
Maybe it hit you as soon as your parents backed the family car out of the college parking lot at the start of your first year at university, and you realized you were on your own. Or, perhaps you felt it standing at the neighborhood bus stop as your child struggled up the school bus steps on his way to kindergarten for the first time. Separation anxiety can affect us all -- even our puppies.
In all likelihood, your puppy has recently left behind her mom, her siblings and the only home she has ever known. She might be scared and lonely. She clings to what she knows makes her feel safe, warm and happy: you. So when you go off to work in the morning or spend a day at a football game, she misses you.
