Most pets have been enjoying extra time with their people since COVID-19 social distancing has kept us at home, but eventually we’ll be back to a more normal rhythm of life, and our animal family members will start spending more time alone.


Pets may suffer separation anxiety once their humans around less. Separation anxiety causes pets emotional stress, and can lead to unwanted behaviors, such as barking, howling, destructive behaviors, chewing, digging, trying to escape, and indoor pottying.
