Top Tips for Dealing with Pet Anxiety

Are you headed out of the house in Raleigh?  Leaving your pet alone for long periods of time can make them feel lonely and anxious and cause unruly behavior such as urinating or defecating in the house or destroying furniture. Here are some tips on how you can make temporary separation easier for them.

Prepare them

Try initially leaving them alone for short periods of time until they are used to the idea of not being by your side all the time.

Leave them treats

By leaving a special treat for them, you can teach your pet that separation has its upsides as well. It gives them something to do while you are gone, which leads us to our next point.


When your pets are able to entertain themselves, they might not even notice you are gone for a little while. There are plenty of toys around that can provide mental stimulation and help pass the time.


CBD has been shown to soothe anxiety in pets as well as in humans. If your pet is struggling with separation anxiety, you could try these CBD treats or even this CBD filled bone.  

Ultimately, if you find that you are having to leave your pet alone for more than a few hours, consider booking a professional pet care professional or dog walking service from Raleigh Pawz to keep them company while you are gone.  We provide services to many communities in the Raleigh, North Carolina area including downtown Raleigh, North Raleigh, Northwest Raleigh, Brier Creek, and Cary.  Contact us today!
