    Any tips and tricks that’s you’ve come across that help separation anxiety? Other than the standard info. Mine don’t have it when I’m gone but they do get clingy when I’m there and not interacting with them.

    I think the vast majority of dogs just want to be with their people. Some will be more independent than others, but it’s not usual for dogs to want to follow you everywhere and be part of everything. We call them Velcro dogs!

    When you say they’re clingy when you’re not interacting with them, what do they do? How long do they spend alone and how much time with you? What sorts of things do you do when you are interacting with them?
