Separation anxiety is an extremely prevalent problem in dogs these days. Dogs are pack animals and prefer to be in the company of their humans though they can learn to enjoy spending periods of time on their own.
Separation anxiety can manifest in many different ways including: barking or howling while alone, toileting in the house, destroying, chewing or scratching of household items/doors/door frames/shoes etc.
Less obvious signs that your dog may be suffering from anxiety while left alone include panting, pacing or drooling before you leave the house, following you around constantly within the home, nipping you as you try to leave or boisterous exuberant behaviour when you return home.
Complaints from neighbours about barking while you are out should be taken seriously as many councils reserve the right to issue large fines of up to £5000
