As much as we love our dogs, we are our dog's whole world. So, when we leave them, they miss us. Life stops. And if your dog is has no "siblings," it's even lonelier.
Patricia B. McConnell Ph.D.'s book I'll Be Home Soon explores separation anxiety and provides some tips that will help your dog when you're away.
One tip: " Teach your dog that wonderful things happen when you walk out the door. The easiest way to do that is to toss treats onto the floor or stuff a hollow toy with food when you act as though you are going to leave the house. But don’t start by walking out and leaving for thirty minutes or an hour."
