Video - Separation anxiety: What is it and why treat it

Separation related problems in dogs can develop for various reasons. However, if you know how to read your dog’s behaviour, it can help you understand what type of issues might lie behind it. In this video, Dr. Jonathan Bowen from the Royal Veterinary College of the University of London, England, explains in detail the different ways in which dogs can express their separation distress, and the reasons and risk factors that may contribute to these behaviours. Separation related problems can have a big impact on the life of both the owner and the dog, and if not treated they may risk the dog for long-term health issues. Watch the video and learn more about why some dogs might develop separation related problems, how they express them and what can be done.
