The signs of separation anxiety in your dog, such as excessive barking, whining, and destructive behavior when left alone.
Practice short departures and gradually increase the time you're away. This helps your dog adjust to being alone for longer periods.
Engage in regular exercise and play with your dog to release excess energy. A tired dog is less likely to exhibit anxiety behaviors.
Work on desensitizing your dog to departure cues, like picking up keys or putting on shoes, so they don't trigger anxiety.
Consider consulting a professional dog trainer or behaviorist if your dog's separation anxiety persists despite your efforts.
