Do you relate with this: “My dog follows me around all day. She even tries to get into the bathroom when I go to take a shower.” 🧖🏽♀️🐶
There is so much information out there that puts shadowing and separation anxiety in the same bag.
The truth is we have found that many dogs shadow their owners (mine does) but don’t suffer necessarily from separation anxiety. Others suffer from this condition but don’t shadow at all.
And even in the cases when both of them occur together, focusing on the home alone issue instead of on “no follow routines” will promote better success.
Some dogs will overcome separation anxiety and still follow their guardians! 🐶
