Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
And, I forget that something that seems so simple and usually don’t last for long can really devastate the owner of a new puppy or a small dog (big dogs don’t seem to suffer from this particular problem very often). The puppy, who has lived his whole life being able to basically go wherever he wants do whatever he desires then suddenly restraint. We as humans think puppies are born with collars and leashes on, and come from the womb knowing how to act and behave on one.
Puppies don’t have the mental facilities to know WHAT and WHY you would put such things on them!
For most people, the puppy is pretty new and fairly small… so there is not any time constraint for getting this done. Parvo virus (which is a disease that can kill puppies and non-vaccinated adults for more click here can live in the soil for 7 months.  SEVEN MONTHS!!
I get started clicker training my puppies right away for more on that click here   and why I use a clicker click here. So I would click and treat as I put the collar on and then click and jackpot as my puppy acclimated to it with no scratching or fit throwing!
Leash training but acclimating to the leash and the beginning of eye contact and focus  and heel  should start INSIDE where distractions are less and the environment is most familiar. I recommend starting in a safe environment (not near stairs or sharp objects) in case he bucks or tries to run from the leash. Let him drag it around for a few days, which means click it on and then watch him as he drags it for several minutes, and do this at least 5 times a day.


Let him wander (basically) wherever he wants provided it is not dangerous and let him know that the leash is nothing to fear. Do this a half dozen or more times per day until he is excitedly awaiting his leash and wandering around normally outside. Before you know it, your puppy will be pulling you like wildfire around your yard, and you’ll be back here looking up articles on leash manners  and heel! Hi Minette, I never had a problem with my puppy he took to the lead straight away day I got him. I start with the collars and harnesses, add in the leashes, leash train inside the house (attached to my belt, with lots of treats) and it all seems to work out. The lighter it is, the easier it will be to get used to.Choose a wide, flat collar and not a thin round one. Thin and round will be lighter but the wider it is, the less pressure and the easier it is on your puppy’s neck and throat. So get a wide flat collar, but one that is as light as you can find.Choose a collar with quick and easy to use clips and not a buckle fastening. Do not rise to anger or make any fuss if your puppy doesn’t accept them for many days. So be patient and eventually they will get it.Try to act as though wearing a leash and collar is no big deal and is completely normal. How To Get Your Puppy Used To A CollarOf course before we can train our puppy to get used to wearing a leash, we have to first get them used to wearing a collar.


Repeat this every half hour or 45 minutes for the first couple of days.Then leave it on for 10 minutes in each hour for the next day. Then 20 minutes in each hour the next day, and so on until you can leave it permanently on.By day 6 or 7 most puppies are used to their collar and comfortable wearing it for hours at a time. Any looser than this and they may be able to slip it off.Putting The Collar On Your Puppy For The First TimeYou want to put the collar on calmly, gently and as quickly as possible.
To help combat this, you can use the power of distraction.Put the collar on before you feed your puppy one of their meals.
Call them over to you, ask for some obedience commands or offer them food or a toy and it will redirect their focus and attention away from the leash.Help! So they learn your pulling is only temporary anyway and their pulling gets them where they want to go. But when used incorrectly and too often, your puppy pulls, feels the leash go slack and then gets yanked back.
A puppy can think a loose leash leads to a snap and then try’s to avoid it by keeping the leash tight.
