All training is one-on-one and customized to your dog’s individual temperament and circumstances. Good training is disciplined play and through these proven training methods, we will teach you exactly HOW to build a reliable and trusting bond between you and your dog companion. Problem Solved Dog Training provides full-service, comprehensive, professional, in-home Puppy and Dog Training. More than half of my clients bring dogs into their lives from shelters or other situations in which the dog’s history is unclear.  And a fairly large percentage of those have some sort of behavioral issue, such as fear-based aggression, barrier frustration (on leash or behind doors or gates) or, the subject of today’s post, separation anxiety. However, just because after you leave for work your dog tears up furniture, soils the carpet, or barks all day, it does not automatically mean he’s suffering from separation anxiety; he could just be bored out of his mind or under-exercised. Other components of the program might include increasing exercise levels, expansion of obedience training, pressure wraps (such as the Thundershirt), and in some cases, medication.
Having owned well-trained dogs all my life, I started Better Nature Dog Training to exploit decades of experience teaching across a number of fields.
I teach people how to effectively train their dogs by clearly demonstrating that every interaction counts when training a dog to come when called, for example, or instructing a puppy how to best get along in life. Training a puppy or dog can be a most rewarding life experience; it can also be stressful and perplexing.

Another good idea is to give your dog a Kong or other fun toy filled with a treat or tasty Kong gel. To ease this separation anxiety, the exit from your home must be calm, just like the entrance when you return home to your dog.

The scientific aspect comes from understanding dog psychology from an evolutionary perspective, knowing how dogs are both similar to and distinct from their ancestors, including the grey wolf.
One of the best services I provide is taking the guesswork out while lending a sure, guiding hand in successful dog behavior development and modification.
We have three dogs, so when Watson is home alone, we put him in a room with Daisy, one of our three, and he enjoys laying with her. This keeps your dog entertained with something other than tearing up your couch or bed, and also lets the dog associate your leaving with a positive reward. Left untreated, it causes damage to your house and belongings — and serious psychological suffering for your dog. We take pride in constantly going to seminars, shadowing other trainers and being part of a network of trainers that support each other on a daily basis. The holistic component derives from taking into account all facets of any particular dog’s situation, including upbringing, prior training, traumatic events and—most importantly—the characteristics of his home and family life. Separation anxiety can result from suffering a traumatic experience, such as a major earthquake or becoming lost in unfamiliar surroundings.
If you come home to find your dog chewing on your old house slippers, in all probability he simply finds the activity enjoyable and uses your absence as a chance to gnaw away, uninterrupted. This way, if your dog is misbehaving, you can go home and prevent any real damage to your things or injury to your dog before it happens.


Training begins in your home before progressing to a public setting, such as a park, where we will solidify our dog training around real world distractions.
Unfortunately, sometimes separation anxiety just isn’t preventable, especially with an older dog. For example, your dog knows that when you put on your jacket, you’re about to leave the house. This establishes the calm environment your dog will eventually associate with your comings and goings, making for less stress and tension on both sides. She provides professional Dog Training, consulting in veterinary hospitals and clinics, and behavior modification and intervention. The results — including the destruction of your belongings and the deterioration of your dog’s mental and physical health — can be devastating. This signals to your dog that coming and going are casual, common occurrences — no need for drama or spectacular displays of emotion. In some cases, dogs prefer the sanctuary of a crate to being left alone in a big open house. Make sure that your dog has no allergies before you use a sedative, and it’s also a good idea to check with your trusted veterinarian that it is okay for your dog to have sedatives as well.
In fact, a diagnosis of separation anxiety in no way precludes a healthy and happy existence for your dog.
