Your dog is a highly social animal. They feel better and more confident when you are around. However, you can’t take them with you everywhere.
How can you tell if your dog is having issues when home alone?
Since you are not there, how can you know what happens? Use your phone to record what your dog does while you are gone. Ask your neighbours, they might hear some whining or barking. Check your door frames for scratch marks. Also your dog might leave some very obvious signs, like destroying furniture.
Take our short questionnaire to see if you dog has home issues and get personal advice to help solve it:
