HOW DO YOU PREVENT FEAR IN YOUR DOGS?
The charity says that you should provide your dog with a comfortable bed or den to relax in and give them something fun to keep themselves occupied, such as sitting and sleeping.
Charlotted Huggins of the Dogs Trust in Newton Tony says it’s all about prep:

“Then gradually build up this time that is left alone.
“We would definitely recommend starting now, especially as more and more people are returning to the office.”
