Left alone can become very emotional and stressful. This can be a difficult experience. But this fear of isolation is simply not only felt by humans. Animals is no exception. Even the dogs, which are considered as human's best friend, suffer the same emotional difficulties.

Dogs are naturally social creatures, they are pack animals. Like babies who develop an attachment to their mothers, dogs, too, developed a very strong bond with their dogs female parents. These dogs just want to be with their territory, where the mother or father can take care of them or provide food through the female dog mammary gland. But once the attachment was dissolved family dog, the dog immediately turned his attention to the owners or their caregivers.
