Has Your Dog’s Behavior
It could be separation anxiety
You’re getting complaints from the neighbors about his barking. He jumps on you when you walk through the door. You’re cleaning up messes after a long day of work. Your new couch is in shreds. Your front door has been clawed to splinters.
If this sounds like your dog, he or she might be suffering from a medical condition called canine separation anxiety. When dogs become upset by their owners' absence, the stress can lead to abnormal behaviors. In fact, up to 17% of dogs in the U.S. may be affected by separation anxiety — and many of them go undiagnosed.1 But there's hope.

Complete the Separation Anxiety Questionnaire to help you recognize the signs of Canine Separation Anxiety. Visit with your veterinarian to determine if separation anxiety might be the cause of your dog's problematic behavior. The most important thing to remember is that your dog may be suffering from a treatable condition.
