Did you get a new dog during the coronavirus lockdown? Or has your longtime four-legged companion gotten used to having you home?

“Dogs are highly social, which is why we get along with them so well,” said Patricia McConnell, certified applied animal behaviorist and author of “The Other End of the Leash: Why We Do What We Do Around Dogs.” “If all of a sudden, they go from ‘everybody home all the time’ to ‘nobody home all day long,’ it can lead to some serious behavioral problems.”

This can mean accidents in the house, chewing on furniture when you are away, or worse.
