Puppy separation anxiety is one of the most common problems dog owners have to deal with every day. Your puppy may start to bark when you leave your home. This is a mild form of anxiety.
If your dog is persistently anxious and you don't do anything about dealing with puppy separation anxiety, it could cause damage to your home, make messes, bark incessantly for hours, or even cause you to leave the house.

Puppies are known to wander in groups. Puppies are social animals and have a strong bond with their owners. They can easily be irritated if you go away from your home. Most of their anxiety is caused by things you do before you leave. Although a dog may hate it when you leave, they have no reason to be upset.
Start by changing the way you get up in the morning. If your puppy does something unusual when your alarm clock rings, it is likely that he already associates that sound with the routine that will result in you vacating the place. You can get up earlier, dress differently, locate your keys and sit down for a while. These small changes can greatly reduce separation anxiety in puppies.
To decrease puppy separation anxiety, the easiest way to do it is to eliminate the relationship between your departure and arrival and their attention. When you return home, don't pay attention to your puppy for more than 5-10 minutes. When you go out, do not pay attention to your puppy. If your puppy starts making sad sounds, don't fold. You can practice this by crate training your dog or by placing him in another area of the house. After that, leave the house and return in regular intervals.
