What is Dog Separation Anxiety?

Before I answer this, let's take a dive into a dog's mind. Dog is a social creature, they love and feel safe being with the pack. A domesticated dog tends to think that their owner (and family) is their pack. When being left alone, they feel like something is missing and bring unsafe feeling.
