Most people believe that dogs bring us so much joy. When we love them, we received the same love from our four-legged buddies too.
However, we all have jobs to do and we also spend a lot of time outside the house which can be problematic for some breeds.
When your dog is alone for hours, it can be harmful to both their physical and mental health and can even cause your pet to experience separation anxiety.
Separation anxiety in dogs is defined as fear or sorrow caused by separation from their owners for a long period of time.
The common symptoms of it include indoor urination or defecation, howling, barking, chewing and destroying things, or even trying to dig out and escape home.
While these symptoms can also be a sign of improper house training, it is more likely separation anxiety when the dogs are heavy panting or drooling.
