What is Separation Anxiety?
It's the fear of being alone
The Dog has a panic attack
The problem arises as soon as the owner out the door.
The Dog can no longer think and has out of control / he can have the panic attack don't stop anymore.
The panic attack will not stop until the owner returns
Your Dog's panic is similar to?
Imagine : You are afraid of spiders and you are locked in a small room with a lot of spiders.
How would you feel?
Adrenaline is released into your body, sweating, palpitations, shivering, etc.
You want it to end.
How do you deal with this?
Kick the door?
Or scared and stiff?
Our dog is doing the same

The difference between Separation Anxiety and other problems:
PANIC is the best indication!
It is Not:
The difference between these dogs and dogs with SA is that these dogs do NOT have PANIC
Dogs that have real separation anxiety continue to bark and howl.
They do not stop until the owner returns.
When a dog panics, he can no longer think.
He can no longer stop what he is doing and this can sometimes only get worse
