Our dogs could be suffering from stress and loneliness when we’re apart from them — even if the couch pillows aren’t torn to pieces when we come home.

That’s what a handy book you might want to puck up says. Dr. John Bradshaw writes about separation distress in Dog Sense: How the New Science of Dog Behavior Can Make You a Better Friend to Your Pet.

Bradshaw has spent his career debunking some of the common bad dog advice we’ve all heard, while researching the understanding of dog behavior.

“Most dogs probably have stronger attachments to people than they do to other dogs,” he says. “Which is pretty unusual for any species, apart from our own.”

One of Bradshaw’s main findings? “Most dogs do not like being left alone.”
