Hello there,

I adopted an adult shi tzu last summer and he was always fine being on his own while i gone to work, never chewed on anything, never did anything wrong, slept the whole time. Last week, he started to shiver when i took my purse to go to work. He did that all week, and then on Friday, when i came back home after work, he had chewed up a HUGE chunk of my carpet! He has many toys that he doesnt seem to touch while i'm gone including a kong full of treats that he only starts eating when i come back home after work. I also take him for a 30 min walk in the morning before leaving and 2 more walks in the evening. I dont know what's happening? Nothing has changed in our every day lives, i dont get it. Why does he shiver like that when i leave, makes me so sad to see him like that but i dont know what to do or why he does it. Any ideas/suggestions? THANKS!!!!

You say nothing has changed in your everyday life (with your dog), but what about when you're not home. Perhaps there are changes you haven't witnessed yet. However, a vet check would be where I'd start - make sure it's not a medical condition.
