Many of my customers lately are asking about their dog having some social anxiety. If this sounds like you I have a few little tips for you.
Does your dog go crazy as soon as you leave the house? Do they wait until you've been gone for a while? Do they have a lot of toys or things to keep them busy?
If you don't know for sure then you can leave a recorder or some kind of device and find out. If they are going crazy as soon as you leave then you will have to work on their anxiety.
If your dog waits until you have been gone for a while then they may just not have enough to do!
The last question is does your dog piddle in the kennel? it may be time to restrict water before bed. Place some scraps of paper under or in the kennel and see if they have been wet. Next time I will talk about helping your dog cope with anxiety.
