The reasons behind separation related problems can be many. This concept just means that our dog is doing things such as barking, eliminating, and/or destroying objects, among others when home alone.
There are many things that can be happening though that are triggering those signs. Stimuli outside the house that are making our dog bark (when nobody is there to tell him to stop), boredom, lack of house training, health issues (that’s why it’s so important to make sure our dog is physically healthy), and other anxiety driven conditions such as noise sensitivity, confinement issues, and separation anxiety, among others.
Some of these previously named conditions are highly correlated with separation anxiety, which means that more than one can be happening at the same time.
That’s why a thorough review of the dog’s history, a health check, and an online assessment are needed to find out what is the problem and how to help the dog feel better.
