Have you ever looked after a dog who suffered from separation anxiety? Did he seem to be nervous or instable? Did the owners tell you that his/her attitude was unusual?

Some anxiety signs:

  • Barking non-stop
  • The dog keeps doing the same movements

Going for a walk is one of the best activities for your health. Who wouldn’t find a good walk relaxing after a hard day?
