Separation Anxiety is a common label used to describe many different separation related problem behaviors. Does your pup whine and bark when you leave the house? Have your neighbors complained while you are at work because your pup won't be quiet? Do you sometimes come home to a destructive mess or accidents?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, your pup might be suffering from separation related problem behaviors (SRPBs). For more information on SRPBs please check out our FAQs page!
