Technically, Separation Anxiety is a clinical condition that is quite rare and can only be diagnosed by a veterinarian.
In every day speech, dog owners use Separation Anxiety to describe a high level of stress their dog is expressing when he/she is left alone (most of the time technically isolation distress).

What does it look like?
Hi, I’m Jack, I just loove life and my humans!
I love walks, and play time, and just chilling on the couch at night in front of the TV getting cuddles.
If it were up to me, I’d stay with my humans 24/7, but sometimes they leave me behind, and then I just panic…
I get so scared when they disappear that I shake, my heart is pounding, I pace back and forth and look through the window in hope to see them come back, but they don’t… so I bark, I howl, sometimes I get soo scared I actually wet myself :'( . The other day I tried to follow them at all cost, but the door just wouldn’t give…
We love our Jack, we really do, he’s our lovebug and our bouncy energy ball.
He is such an awesome dog and a perfect match for us, but we don’t know what to do anymore.
Every time we go out, be it to go to work or even just to run to the store and back, he totally looses it.
We don’t even dare going out to a restaurant, for fear of coming back to angry neighbors complaining about the noise and threatening to call the landlord or the SPA, and that’s all on top of the cost of repairing or replacing the things he destroys in the process.
How can we make him understand that we will be back?
Why does he react like this, when we’ve never abandoned him?
How can we get our life back?
Does this sound familiar?
You are not alone!
An estimated 15% of dogs experience a high level of stress when their owner are absent which is expressed by barking, howling, urinating or defecating, destructions, but also more subtle signs like hypervigilance, pacing, panting, or refusing to eat.
It makes life miserable for both the dog and the owner, who can even get to the point of wondering whether they need to relinquish their beloved companion !
