We are midway through August, hard to believe! School is right around the corner, bringing back nostalgic memories of when I used to teach music in my house. One of the yearly rituals I had in preparing for the new school year was getting the dogs and cats ready to receive new and previous students coming into their household.
The new schedule of returning to school, going to school for the first time in your life, or leaving for college can be demanding. Not only are the kids getting back to a full fall schedule, there are many unknowns that need to be met and triumphed over those first few weeks. This can be a stressful time for parents and kids alike…….AND for your animal family. Because dogs are pack animals, they are more likely to experience anxiety when the 2-legged kids in their pack return to school.
Here are some common symptoms dogs may exhibit when showing separation anxiety:
- Inappropriate Urinating/Defecating
- Reduced Activity/Hiding
And who wants their beloved animal pal to experience that?
