What is separation anxiety in dogs

Separation anxiety is the feeling of extreme anxiety a dog can experience when separated from its people. If you’ve noticed your dog pacing restlessly, or showing other signs of anxiety when you prepare to leave for work, or if you’ve come home from an errand to find the house a total mess, then your dog may be suffering from separation anxiety. Your dog isn’t trying to behave badly or punish you for going out. This is simply a situation that makes some dogs extremely anxious, and their behaviour is a sign of their distress. To put it simply, it scares them to be separated from you!
