A sudden, abrupt change to a dog's schedule can cause behavioral problems as your pup doesn't understand why the changes have occurred. Separation anxiety is likely to occur when a dog who is now used to receiving attention 24/7 is left home alone for hours on end. So, while you and your family are eager to get back into the swing of things, it's important to remember that your dog may not understand what is going on (and why you are no longer petting him 8 hours a day). Make sure you take the time to help your dog adjust so that separation anxiety behaviors do not occur.
