Will dogs grow out of separation anxiety?
Puppies will not just miraculously grow out of separation anxiety as they get older because it has little to do with their age.
Many rescue dogs have extreme separation anxiety, due to the abandonment they have previously experienced.
How to treat minor separation anxiety
