Can you remember how it felt when you used to be left alone in the house as a child?
It is both thrilling and scary to find yourself in a big house where no one can monitor you; you want to enjoy the experience to the fullest as much as you want, but you are equally scared that something can go wrong and you will be left alone forever.
Same as you, your furry friend tends to fall in one of the 2 camps: They may grab this freedom by its horns and start chewing up the couch, digging in the trash cans, and burying their bodies in our dirty clothes.
Or, they would become extremely anxious and start being destructive the second you leave!
In both cases, you can change your dog’s behavior and get him to be a lot more secure and confident when you are absent. He has to learn that you need to leave sometimes and that you will always come back!
