How do dogs feel when you leave them?

Dogs form a close bond with their owners and do miss them when they are out. It is important to get your dog used to being left alone as otherwise it can result in destructive behaviour, such as chewing and causes the dog stress, resulting in barking and whining. Leaving your dog for a few minutes at a time when they are young and building up the time you leave them slowly, will help ease their stress and they will soon be happy and fall asleep when you go out.
