Separation anxiety is a common disorder which occurs when the individual experiences drastic changes from a situation they were comfortable in. It is common in domestically owned dogs with 20%-40% of household dogs suffer from separation anxiety every day and 8 out of 10 dogs experiencing it once in their life. This number would have risen due to COVID, with owners returning to work, the separation/loneliness would have struck many dogs.
