Have you ever wondered what your dog does when you leave the house? It’s impossible to really know unless you install cameras throughout the house or put one on the dog, which is exactly what this dog owner did. His dog didn’t misbehave or destroy things while he was away, but he suspected he had some separation anxiety.
In this video, which has been viewed a shocking 18+ million times, we see what happened when one man decided to attach a GoPro camera around his dog’s neck to record exactly what he was up to all day. This video is the edited result of all the footage that was recorded on this one day. I have to warn you, the edited result can be a bit upsetting, as the dog kind of aimlessly wanders around the house and cries out for his owner, YouTube user Mike The Intern. He seems to sleep for part of the day, but there is a lot of wandering and crying.
The point here is that most of us have no choice but to leave our pets at home alone for periods of time. That’s exactly why it’s so important to show our pets love in the time we do share with them.
