It’s always hard when the yearly vacations arrive and it’s time to say goodbye. We see parents FaceTiming their kids that are staying at Grandma and Grandpa’s house all the time, so why can’t us pet owners do that? They’re our kids, too.
Separation anxiety is one of the biggest complaints amongst pet owners and is most often taken as bad behavior rather than the deeper problem that it is. No, separation anxiety is not simply a pet whining and quivering in the corner. Other more severe characteristics include going to the bathroom in the house (even when they’re house trained), getting into the trash, barking/howling, chewing things other than their toys (goodbye, flip-flops), digging (just about anywhere), and trying to escape.
