Just a short post today.
It’s very annoying when my dogs relieve themselves when they are alone in the house. They’ll even do it just after being outside for an extended time and then are left alone in the house.
It’s not something they do if anybody is home with them.
Till today, I never thought of it as a possible symptom of separation anxiety. Who knew?
Here’s an informative and helpful article in The Post and Courier.
And as the author points out, “adding another pet to the household generally will not work.” At least it didn’t in my case. I’m going to try out the other suggestions.
Meanwhile, I’m working on two other posts. One about national healthcare and the other about a recent study on comorbid anxiety disorders.
