Separation Anxiety article from The Bark

In my recent article for The Bark magazine (available on newstands now), separation anxiety was the question of the day:

Reader's Question:  Charley, a rescued three year-old Lab who’d spent his entire life in an outdoor kennel, was scared of everything when we first got him. He’s been with us for eight months and now, he panics when we leave him alone. We have two crates,one in our house and one in our car.  He goes into the home crate and stays there for about an hour. I’ve been gradually closing the door and even leaving the house, and when I come back, he’s fine. However, when we leave him in his car crate, he just loses it, so distraught that he’s destroyed a crate bed and a quilt. Is this separation anxiety?  We adore him and want to help him,but what can we do?
