Few readers will disagree. Dogs today have birthday parties, wardrobes, health foods and spa services. Such pathos may explain why many dog lovers take pains to consider what dogs need from us rather than focusing solely on what we want from them. Experts stress the importance of socializing a dog during her puppy years.
Many of the symptoms of separation are obvious and painful for dog owners who need to go out and earn a living. While some owners will try independence training, exercise and drug therapy, many experts say early and frequent socialization with other animals or living in a multi-animal home may produce a healthier dog. Experts agree that dogs get lonely when they spend much of their time alone because they are pack animals. Descended from wolves, who live and work in groups, dogs are social beings, and we have become their pack members. If they are deprived of companions—both canine and human—they suffer.
Animal behaviorists agree that dogs need environmental stimulation, just as humans do. Dogs will work to see other dogs by pushing a panel with their muzzles. They find activity rewarding. To remove a dog from her own pack without providing a substitute pack can cause great distress to the animal. Those who suffer from separation anxiety demonstrate despair by tearing up furniture or other household items, urinating or defecating, vocalizing, digging, running away or even self-mutilation, which is behavior that provides some sort of distraction.
Of all the behaviors that demonstrate despair, incessant barking tops the list. Dogs may suffer silently and without symptoms, as well. Many slept outdoors. More and more, both adults worked, and children spent elongated days at schools and day-care centers. And with stricter health laws and the sprawl of suburbia, dogs were no longer welcome at the food mart or drug store.
Behaviors that tell you this is not a game
Consequently, dogs were not only spending weekdays home alone, but on weekends they were left again as we ran around town doing our chores. Becker points to the trend in modern zoos to keep animals in groups and offer them more stimulation and challenge.

Sporn says there were more than independent centers nationwide in Sporn agrees that dogs thrive in a pack environment. Sporn conducts an interview before admitting a dog.
Two Bad Dogs
There have been a couple of bites over the years but no fatalities. Dogs who have not been spayed or neutered are ineligible, as are those with a history of aggression. Sporn says that most dogs are good candidates for doggy day care, even the shy, reclusive ones. At some centers, day care means more than just food, companionship and a walk.
Not everyone who has a dog can afford doggy day care, nor is every dog a good candidate. Three weekends a month at the country house and one weekend with the dog sitter. For some dogs, being thrust into a social situation is as painful as it is for the wallflower to go to the prom. Such dogs might be happier to have another dog—or cat—at home. Throughout the ages dogs have bonded with all kinds of creatures including lions, horses, even birds.
According to the AAHA study in , 44 percent of participating pet guardians acquired an animal simply to keep another animal company. In its survey, AAHA found that 31 percent of pet owners plan visits with others who have pets just to allow their pet to socialize. Becker believes that dogs share a bond and give each other things that humans cannot duplicate.
Introducing a second dog, or even a cat, takes special consideration.
For dogs who have trouble being alone, it could even be a mistake because a new dog might learn to mimic the same undesirable behavior. Like others, Tripp believes that bringing a second dog or even a cat into the home can be productive if the original dog is well-adjusted and if the dog owner takes strategic steps in bringing the animals together. In the case of dogs, Tripp recommends that the two animals first meet on neutral territory. They should be held with leashes slightly slackened and given a chance to do nose-to-nose sniffing.
