A Hard Truth: Why Not Leaving Your Dog Is Ridiculously Tough, But Absolutely Necessary

One of the hardest things I ever have to tell anyone is that to get their dog over separation anxiety, they need to find ways not to leave their dog in the meantime.

It never goes down well.

And I get that. I mean, when you get a dog the last thing you sign up for is not even being able to go out to get a pint of milk without your dog howling down the house.

But the thing is, in order for the gold standard separation anxiety treatment (gradual exposure) to work, we have to stop dogs having exposure to scary alone time.

I do get how impossibly hard this can be, though. I wouldn't suggest it if there were any other way.

That's why, in this latest episode, I explain why we need to do this. And I dive into what you might do if you're struggling to get your head round this crazy concept.

Tune in to find out more.
