A lot of people worry about their pet's anxiety while they are away from home and the condition of the lonely dog in the house. When the pet owner is away from home for a whole day, take it as a job or a tour. Dogs usually don’t have many things to do inside the home for a long time without its usual company and become restless while anxiety hits the pet.
While the owner returns home, the dog just finds it as a relief, whining, running around and playing with the owner in an excitement. This shows the situation of the dog when you are away from home and its state of mind that desperately needs a company.
This can be avoided by countering the condition by giving your dog a stuff to forget about loneliness and involve in some work. Giving the dog a toy, filled with food or flavoured treats would help in engaging the pet in a task and keep its mind relaxed throughout.ads
A toy filled with some tasty stuffed meal probably not the one which the dog usually gets for the breakfast or dinner daily. It is good to provide with new treats like low-fat Peanut butter, Cottage Cheese, low-fat cream cheese and other delicious stuff can be added in the toy that will keep dog glued and stay away from anxiety.
Addition of the morning meal or a lunch can also be added to make it as a multitask. This method is not a big deal, but it works only for a pet with an extent of low-medium anxiety while higher anxiety level couldn’t be handled by this easy method.
It is better to hire an Animal behaviourist to guide you with the needed techniques to handle this situation while taking charge by your own in such conditions might lead to serious issues. It is essential to make sure whether the guy is a certified behaviourist.ads
