What To Do When Your Pet Goes Crazy In Your Absence?


Visitors: 290

The moments when you are away from home can turn to be scary if you have left your pet alone.

As dogs show a rebelling behavior when they are left alone in the house, they often start chewing your favorite shirt, scratch your chair or tear your sofa cover and sometimes, they start barking continuously.

On the other hand, some dogs show a different behavior. They isolate and abandon themselves. The main reason behind this is separation anxiety in the pets that is the result of unwanted isolation given to them.

So, in most of the cases, pets go punk.

Separation anxiety is very common in some pets that are very young and do not even understand the meaning of a goodbye. If you isolate them, they feel that they are being left forever.

The most common signs they show are continuous barking, chewing etc.

So, when next time you leave, do it in a different way. When you start to leave, be ready and let the pet see you.

Show him you putting keys in pocket and opening the door. But do not just leave. Leave your pet alone only for 5 minutes and see how your pet responds.

Now, when your feel the need, you should increase the time gradually. Once they get accustomed to the situation, they can be left alone.

Another famous trick is, switch on your TV when you leave for some time. The sounds and the pictures will give your pet a feeling of security when you are away.

Do not forget to take your dog for a walk. If he runs for some 30 minutes daily, he can have a good sleep in the home when you are away.

Remember, dogs are your best friends. If they tear things in your absence, it means they are missing you. So, you should start working on it right away.
