What are the signs of separation anxiety in dogs and how can I treat it?

Asked a year ago

I fear that my 2 year old dog has separation anxiety because whenever I come home she pants like crazy, and when I leave she barks A LOT. My neighbour also mentions that she would yelp sometimes when I am not home. Are these indicators of seperation anxiety?

Unfortunately, yes, these are common signs of separation anxiety. Try installing a camera at home so you can monitor your dog’s behavior while you’re gone. You can then try leaving your dog with a special toy and see if that helps. For severe cases, you might need to consider getting a petsitter or taking your dog to doggie daycare.
