When treating a dog for Separation Anxiety, you will need to first understand where the anxiety is coming from and then fix the cause and not the symptoms
What is Separation Anxiety and what signs does your dog exhibit when suffering from this?
Many behaviorists use techniques such as desensitizing your dog or treating them with medications to ease the anxiety - while these techniques may help, they are just band-aids and don't go to the root of the problem.
Separation Anxiety is caused by the relationship between you and your dog. Become a good leader to your dog where you are in charge and your dog will become calmer and much less anxious when you leave.
Create a secure and den-like space for your dog while you are away.
