Do you worry about your best friend home alone all day - bored and getting into mischief  or feeling guilty leaving them in a lonely small kennel?     

Dogs are social pack animals that need interaction with other dogs and people to remain happy and healthy.  No matter how many hugs and kisses you give them when home – your leaving for the day can major anxiety trigger for your pouch.  Separation Anxiety in canines often leads to pet parents have returned home to stressed out pups.


The common systems of Separation Anxiety include:  

  • Digging and scratching at doors or windows attempting to reunite with their owners

  • Destructive chewing of furniture and personal items

  • Howling, barking and/or whining

  • Urination and defecation (even with otherwise house-trained dogs)

Your dog isn't wild or untrained - they are simply scared and in panic mode unsure what is happening.  The Humane Society of The United States says....   "Doggie Daycare is one of the best ways to soothe separation anxiety in dogs."
