Severe cases of dog separation anxiety honestly are not that common. Take it from a professional dog trainer who gets called for “dog problems” every day. Not to say it doesn’t happen but many times this behavior is mind and is being perpetuated without us even realizing why. And the good news is you can change some simple habits and have life be better for you and the dog.
In many cases the truth of the matter is as people we don’t understand how dogs think and learn. With a little diligence, research and possibly the help of a professional trainer the concept of pictures becomes very clear to everyone.
