Barking when home alone can become a serious problem. This kind of barking occurs when a dog barks nonstop, whines, urinate and chews furniture, etc. Some dogs become distressed or have a panic attack when separated from their human OR when home alone. This kind of barking is very sad and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Using spray collars or shock collars to stop barking will only make the panic attack worse in the long run. The best way to solve this problem is to get professional help. Working with a positive reinforcement dog trainer with specific training in separation anxiety or related issues is best. Some dogs with separation-related issues may show other symptoms besides barking. These symptoms can include urinating in the house, chewing through a door and even jump through windows.
