    Hi fellow dog lovers, So I thought I'd share my little story here, especially after reading the article “prevent separation anxiety in dogs” from Insider. If it just helps 1 dog family out there, I'd be happy :) So I have a Pitbull that I adopted from a rescue shelter 2 years ago, and...

    Hello! I adopted a pit 3 months ago (M, neutered, 2yo, 75lbs). He's just perfect, minus separation anxiety. It's been a challenge, but with training and patience things are moving along. He's now able to stay home for a full day alone (AM + PM walk, plus noon dogwalker). He doesn't love it but...

    We have a 5-6 year old female pit rescue, Mia, who demonstrates extremely destructive behavior during thunderstorms. She begins her behavior at the first sign of bad weather, before the first raindrop even falls, and the sound of thunder sends her behavior into full blown destruction. To date...

    Has anybody experienced a senior dog developing separation anxiety? My mutt is 12 and a half now and he's always been really attached to me. In the last couple of months it's gotten worse. He's rarely left home alone so it's JUST me. My boyfriend says once it hits 2pm when I usually get home...

    I have a year and 4 month old female Pit Bull that I rescued. She suffers with anxiety, especially separation, but all around is an extremely sweet and friendly girl. The only issue I've always had with her, is when unfamiliar people come to the door and inside our home. She barks and growls and...

    I took the dogs for a quick walk today. It's actually raining here in California. :) A dog came running out of someone's garage just as we were rounding the corner at the start of our walk. Super annoying. Seems to always be a dog off leash somewhere. The dog, a big Standard Poodle ran straight...
