Coton Connection, Issue #083 - Can your neighbors help with separation anxiety?
October 09, 2018
|Welcome Coton Lovers:
Can your neighbors help with separation anxiety?
Separation Anxiety has come up time and again from concerned Coton parents who have to leave their dogs at home while they work. It's a legitimate concern since this breed doesn't usually do well left alone for long periods of time.
But I thought I'd share an easy solution that I recently stumbled on when I moved to a new community. My new home is in a very dog friendly neighborhood; there's a dog park and dog walkers everywhere. Since I'm constantly meeting my neighbors while out walking Luc, I found that there's a support system in place where people take turns walking their neighbor's dogs or checking in with them during the day.
I love that idea. It can be stressful hiring a dog walker you don't know to come into your home when you're not there. So having someone who lives in your own neighborhood check in on your dog can be a great option if you live in a community with lots of pet owners. And if something like this doesn't exist, you can create your own little support network quite easily.
