How to know that your dog has developed separation anxiety?
The veterinary behaviorist can examine your dog for separation anxiety disorder. But the owner himself can judge with certain gestures or habits of the dog that may indicate the presence of separation anxiety disorder. Common symptoms include abnormally excited behavior upon the return of the owner to home. The dog may circle around or jump. Anxious dogs can keep moving along with the owner even from room to room. When left alone, such dogs howl, bark, urinate in the house, or may even break their teeth or household things in anxiety.
