Learn about ‘Separation Anxiety’ at the Humane Society
If your dog paces and pants when you start getting ready to leave the house, or has caused trouble while you were gone, he/she may be suffering from separation anxiety. Separation anxiety is a common phrase used to describe dog behavior when left alone, but it might surprise you to learn that not all destructive behavior falls into this category. Maybe your dog is displaying symptoms of separation anxiety, or maybe it is simply boredom. Knowing the difference is critical, because fixing the problem depends on understanding the cause.
The Humane Society of Jefferson County, in partnership with the Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic is offering a “Separation Anxiety” workshop on Monday, September 18 at 6:00 p.m. in the shelter’s Community Education Room. At this workshop, participants will learn about what separation anxiety is...and is not. Those in attendance will learn ways to help dogs who are having trouble being left alone, whatever the cause.
As with all HSJC workshops, there is no cost to attend, but cash donations are greatly appreciated. Please call the Humane Society at 920-674-2048 for more information and to register.
