Seperation Anxiety and Chewing
So I have a roughly 16 month old German Shepherd and I've begun to notice that when my fiance and me leave for any amount of time he barks, whines, and chews anything he can get his teeth on. He doesn't ever chew any other time. It's only when we leave. He does not have a crate and never has. He's always been very well behaved up until this point. Is there any way to correct this behavior?
Im new to this site and hope this is the appropriate place to post this. Also I hope its okay that I add a picture of Gus, my shepherd.
Thank you for any help or advice you offer.
