Does your dog pace when you reach for the car keys, rip a few cushions while you’re out, or jump all over you upon re-entry?
How about your walks? Is it really your dog who takes you for a walk? Does he drag you along or launch into aggressive dramas when something passes by or approaches you?
If you’re embarrassed by your dog’s unsettled and wild behavior, remember, you’re not alone. Separation anxiety and leash aggression are the #1 and #2 problems of the 21st century (according to me). While housebreaking and jumping topped the list for a decade, they’ve taken a backseat. Why?
