How do I deal with separation anxiety in dogs where it occurs naturally? My family wishes to get a dog that works well with kids, but all of these dogs have issues with separation. This is a problem because the dog will have to be by itself for 7 hours a day when everyone is out of the house. Any solutions?
You can’t categorically eliminate entire breeds as having ‘separation anxiety’! Any breed, if raised correctly, exercised as much as the breed requires, socialized, trained, etc., can be left alone for 7 hours a day. People do have to work to live, so if you’ve been told that some breeds can’t be left alone, you’re talking to the wrong breeders.
