Barking and Howling

Barking Up The Wrong Tree?

I get questions about barking almost every day, and unlike other common behavior problems, with barking it’s almost always the same problem and solution. What I tell people is this – barking is natural! It’s one of the most important ways dogs communicate. Energy is their main form of communication, but some barking is normal.

  One of the most common phrases used by owners to describe a dog that appears stressed when the owner leaves home—or just leaves the room—is separation anxiety in dogs.

Is Your Dog Addicted To You?

Like dogs, humans can experience separation anxiety, although usually for rational reasons. People generally don’t feel anxiety because their spouse went to work or their kid went to school. But it’s normal to feel it if your spouse works as a firefighter, or it’s your kid’s first day at a new school; worse if your kid is a teen who just got their license.

When the object of our affections isn’t around, nothing feels right in the world.

Deaf Great Dane And Toddler Share An Unbreakable Bond

Being a shelter dog must be a scary experience. There are so many unfamiliar sights, smells, and noises. The kennels are cramped and depressing. Your neighbors leave their kennels and are never seen again. Sometimes shelter dogs get lucky and are rescued by other animal charities and organizations that take them in and foster them until they’re able to find a forever home. And while this is better than a scary shelter, it’s still not the same as knowing that you’ve got a loving family that will never let you go.  As humans, we can’t imagine what must be going
