How to Ease Dogs with Separation Anxiety

This can manifest in a number of symptoms including barking, whining, crying, chewing furniture, urinating inside (when they are 100% potty trained), escape attempts, and being in general destructive. Separation anxiety is triggered when dogs become upset when they are separated from their guardians. Some dogs are easily agitated when they see their humans simply getting ready to leave and others only become anxious when their guardians depart through the front door. Others try to even prevent their people from leaving altogether. And then when their guardians return home the dogs act as if it has been years since they have seen their people.

In general socialization means learning to be a part of society and that goes for humans and dogs alike. This means that socializing your puppy means taking the time to carefully introduce your new family member to different types of environments, buildings, sights, sounds, smells, animals, handling, grooming, in addition to other dogs and people.
