Does this happen even after a long walk or fetch in the backyard? Your dog is likely getting bored from a lack of stimulation, socialization and movement in their day. They also might be developing a certain level of separation anxiety because they are so used to doing everything with you.
While your dog is happy you are home all the time with them, they want to see other things than just you, your home or your neighborhood. While you are busy working or cleaning up around the house, they are not getting the right levels of exercise, socialization or mental stimulation they need to thrive.
When your dog is experiencing a lack of socialization, they will usually act out by participating in destructive behaviors. This is your dog’s way of letting you know that they need to be more stimulated. Just because you are physically home more often doesn’t mean they will be more active.
You could have noticed these behaviors already, such as increased barking and whining, chewing on household items or increased self-grooming. These are signs that your dog is not getting their needs met regarding exercise and socialization.
