Separation anxiety in dogs

Separation Anxiety in dogs;  the anxiety the dog experiences when left alone and the anxiety the owner feels worrying about their dog’s emotional health when they have to leave him.  Can dogs with separation anxiety be helped?  The answer is YES!

Case:  Meet Eli, Eli is a 10 year old Pitt Bull who was recently adopted from a local Maryland Shelter.Separation Anxiety Eli crate
Eli has spent the last 6 months at the shelter, where he received lots and lots of attention.

Eli was adopted by the most amazing family here in Silver Spring Md. They brought him home,  immediately they began giving him the attention they felt he deserved. Then Monday morning came when they had to leave him to go to work, not considering any of the challenges Eli would face, the family left for their 9 hr day leaving Eli crated in a room. When they returned home that evening from work, here is what they came home to :
