How do I deal with separation anxiety in dogs where it occurs naturally? My family wishes to get a dog that works well with kids, but all of these dogs have issues with separation. This is a problem because the dog will have to be by itself for 7 hours a day when everyone is out of the house. Any solutions?

Have you already gotten the dog..?
Cuz if you haven’t I don’t think it would be wise to get one.
7 hours a day home alone will be very lonely for a dog.
Some dogs when left alone can be very destructive in which case most people put them in a cage for the day.
If you don’t have the time to devote to the dog, don’t get one. It’s not fair to the animal.
