Unless you have a job that you can work at from at home, you are retired or you have relatives willing to babysit your pooch every day, chances are there are times it is unavoidable you have to leave your furry friend to fend for themselves in the home. Dogs have an unmatched loyalty and commitment to their owners and whenever there is a separation of any type; your dog could form issues such as anxiety or stress in regards to you leaving.
Separation Anxiety in Dogs
Psychological issues can affect not only humans but also canines at different levels. Separation anxiety is one of the most common complaints dog owners have in regards to their furry friend. This anxiety can range in mild to severe from stress symptoms when you leave the house to stress symptoms when you only leave the room. Dogs will show their anxiety in different ways such as but not limited to:
Urinating or defecating when completely housebroken
Barking or howling excessively
Destructive mannerisms (Digging or chewing on household items)
Pacing or running laps throughout the house
Personality changes towards their owners
Audiobooks and How They Work
Audiobooks are a great way for us to relax while still having the freedom to move around and complete other tasks during your free time. This endeavor geared towards our furry friends either uses human voices or your own pre-recorded voice to narrate your dog a story when you aren't home with them.

Dogs are creatures of habit by nature and whenever an unknown element puts a wrench in their routine, it can create a negative effect. Dogs are also social creatures that thrive when surrounded by familiar faces and sounds. Using an audiobook that is able to be recorded in your own voice creates a sense of security and well-being for your pooch.
