Description

Many owners leave the house without considering their dogs emotional needs when left alone. Some dogs are fine, some suffer in silence some become agitated, vocal and destructive. This book gives you the tools you need to teach your dog how to enjoy his own company, before behavioural problems arise, so you can both spend quality time apart.

Synopsis

Why do owners wait until their dog becomes anxious when alone at home, before investing time in teaching him how to become comfortable alone? Owners often assume that their dog will sleep, yet many dogs suffer from anxiety and stress when left alone  and some owners only discover this when their dog becomes destructive, or a neighbour complains about his barking.
Home alone and happy! was born out of the need to educate pet owners before the problems of separation anxiety arise. Written for those who wish to maintain their dogs emotional wellbeing, and those who want to take action before a very mild issue grows into something more serious.
Kate Mallatratt shows you the problem through your dogs eyes when he is alone at home, and offers you valuable insight and advice to help make his time alone pleasant and stress-free. Beautifully illustrated, with worksheets to evaluate your dogs level of contentment and chart his progress, youll learn how you can both spend quality time alone, despite being apart.
