You suspect your dog may be suffering from separation anxiety. What now?
There are a some easy things you can do as pet parents if you suspect or believe your dog is suffering from separation anxiety….
- Get a clean bill of health from your veterinarian. Ensure that there aren’t any co-existing medical concerns that are affecting your dog’s behavior.
- Video your dog in your absence to get a baseline of your dog’s behaviors when you are gone. Send the video to our dropbox link (email) us for the link). This will help us determine next steps and determine how severe the problem is.
- Gather supports including family/friends and join our virtual and in person support groups to help you work through what you are going through. These groups are safe places to know you are not alone. Everyone needs some help now and then.
- Consider journaling in your Komtrak notebook your progress or lack there of. This will help you see trends as well as help you see progress in your journey as well as help us know how to help if things get stuck.
