Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Every time your dog looks away, say his name excitedly, shake the toy or treat, and say "Let's go!" (excitedly), treat him, and he will keep walking.
If the dog gets ahead of you and starts to pull, take a few steps backwards (look behind you, first!) until the dog is moving back towards you again and is at your side. If your dog is consistently pulling, you may want to try using a head halter; these work very well also if your dog is comfortable wearing it (it may need to be desensitized first).
Remember that you need to give your dog enough slack in the leash that is loose when the dog is walking close to you.
Remember, do not use any harsh discipline like hitting, jerking on the leash or yelling when your dog doesn't follow. If choke chains are used correctly, they can be effective (though positive punishment and negative reinforcement) at teaching a dog to walk without pulling.


This will lure your dog into following you around and, it will teach him to hold his head high, since he will be looking at you and the treats.
At that time start walking forward again - the dog should be at your side and you should immediately praise and reward your dog. If you hold the dog close to your side with a tight leash, it will be very difficult for the dog to learn to walk without pulling.
Walking on a loose leash is challenging to teach but can be accomplished with the correct method. They are only effective if the dog is walking on one side of you (traditionally, on the left) and the chain must be placed on the dog's neck specifically for that side. If your dog doesn't follow, do step three again, and if he does, but then starts pulling again say a soft yet stern "No Max", and continue.


The best idea is to take your dog to the pet supply store and try on several harnesses until you find one that you are happy with, that fits your dog well, and that will serve the purpose well. Choke chains should never be used on puppies, and there is evidence to show that they can cause lasting, long-term damage to a dog's neck and trachea. There are also front-clip harnesses where the leash attaches at the middle of the dog's chest that can greatly reduce pulling.
