When a dog is angry with you, they'll let you know by either destroying something in your home, urinating in your home or flat out other destructive bad behavior. Its usually something easy to fix - but not with a dog with a separation anxiety disorder. If left untreated, it can cause this poor animal to hurt themselves and possibly someone else.

Their need for attention, especially as puppies, is pretty demanding; but there are ways to calm them down, to let them know its ok to be left alone by themselves and this is often something they should enjoy.

Making them understand that its ok is one of the first steps but often the hardest. My book includes all the information you'll need to get into your animals head to know what it truly needs to be placated.

What Is Dog Separation Anxiety?
Separation anxiety is a critical behavioral problem, which can cause tremendousemotional distress for both dogs and their owners. It can occur in dogs of any age orbreed, and is one of the most common reasons for pet owners to euthanize or give uptheir dogs.Most dogs with normal behavior characteristically sleep, bark randomly or chew theirtoys when left alone in the house or in a room without access to its owner. In general,they pretty much do what they normally do when you are with them. For dogs withseparation anxiety, they can make leaving the house or even the room an emotionalhitch and a difficult task for its owner. Separation anxiety can cause dogs to:
whine or bark incessantly
pace, chew furniture, destroy blinds, rip up carpeting, eat through drywall, climbbookcases, mutilate plants or scratch at windows and doorsDogs with severe separation anxiety can destroy thousands of dollars in internalfurnishings, go through plate glass windows injuring themselves, bloody their mouthsand paws and defecate and urinate (eliminate) everywhere. Their howling, barking andwhining can also lead to problems with neighbors and landlords.

What Are The Main Causes Of Separation Anxiety? 
It is not fully understood exactly why some dogs suffer from separation anxiety and,
under similar circumstances, others don’t.
Separation anxiety can be seen in animalsfrom multiple or single-pet homes. It may be more likely to occur in animals with ahistory of abuse or of multiple homes. Dogs that have missed out on normal socialinteraction with people or other animals, especially as puppies, may also be atincreased risk.

Separation anxiety typically occurs in the following cases:
A dog has never or rarely been left alone or the ones that were not properlyintegrated into their first home and got relegated to a basement, garage or yard.
Dogs who were removed from their mother and littermates too early (prior to 8weeks of age) or too late (after 14 weeks).
Following a long interval, such as a vacation where the owner and dog wereconstantly together.
 
After a traumatic event (from the dog’s point of view) such as a period of time
spent at a shelter or boarding kennel, or an event that occurred which was asignificantly frightening experience for your dog.

A dog that has never had a prior problem may develop separation anxiety whenthere is a change in the owner's work schedule.
A dog that is getting quite old.
It could be the result of changes
in the family’s routine or structure
, such as:
A child leaving for boarding school or college;
A change in work schedules;
The household has moved to a new home; or
A new pet or person comes into the home.
Dogs that have been abandoned at key points in their psychologicaldevelopment.
Time spent at the veterinary clinic.Experts also agree that separation anxiety is a panic reaction, and definitely not anattempt by the dog to "spite" their ownersIt is important to realize, that the destruction and house soiling that often occurs withseparation anxiety is
not the dog’s attempt to punish or seek revenge on
its owner forbeing left alone, but rather is actually part of a panic response.One has to understand that dogs are pack animals. It is natural that they would wish tobe with people all the time. Most adult dogs (12-16 months and older depending onbreed) can be left alone for 8 hours or even longer if they have access to a yard forelimination. They may be unhappy, or they could be bored but they don't create majordestructive problems for their owners.A dog with separation anxiety is different.
