    As I was walking Trunks this morning, it occurred to me that he is hardly interacting with other dogs these days.

    Similarly, I hardly get to chat with other dog owners and no one comes to our house anymore. Aside from the negative impacts on myself and my family, i started to think of the negative consequences for Trunks. This paper was really interesting:

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to view articles at Researchgate without signing up - is it available anywhere else please?

    Ah, it works, thanks! I'll read it later. I work from home, and we have great walks straight from the house, so very little has changed for Jasper. Though we've hardly left him home alone at all since March, so I'll need to build that up gradually when we're all allowed out again.

    Same here. Trunks has the children and I around all day; he's constantly in the room with one of us.
