When children are scared, they like to squeeze their teddy bears. Stuffed teddies don’t offer much protection from monsters in the dark, but the comfort they provide goes a long way in helping a kid feel safe. Similarly, dogs can get comfort from their owner’s scent, which is why a lot of them like to hide in their owner’s closets during thunderstorms! If your dog is showing signs of separation anxiety, it might be a good idea to leave behind some recently worn clothes for them to smell and cuddle. This can help your overly-attached dog feel comforted and stay calm during a stressful event, such as your departure.
