How to Avoid Separation Anxiety
Don't Over-Indulge Them - It is tempting to give your dog whatever they want while you’re home with them, but try to keep up all the normal house rules.
Have Time Apart - You don't always need to be playing with your dog, make sure you both have time to rest on your own.
Spend Quality Time Together - The time that you spend with the dog should be based on building up their confidence. Fun games and positive reinforcement for mental stimulation are good ways to do this. Fetch, learning new tricks, or hiding toys for your dog to find are all fun games.
Encourage Separate Rest - After a few games with you for an afternoon, your dog should be encouraged to sleep in their own space. This should help them get used to sleeping without you around.
