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

Separation related problems in dogs can develop for various reasons, but if you know how to read the dog’s behaviour it can help you understand what type of issues might lie behind it. In the video, Dr Jonathan Bowen from the Royal Veterinary College of the University of London, England, explains more in detail about the different ways how dogs can express their separation distress, but he also discusses the reasons and risk factors that can lead 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 problems, how they express them and what can be done.
