Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
The only thing I could do to squeeze a smile and sense of calm from my daughter was to talk about how if I were a princess with a magic wand I would turn all of her friends into slugs and pigs and boogers…I kept going until I could no longer think of anything repulsive enough to make her laugh. The rescue group is aware of what happened and will not be placing him in a home with small children.
Yeah, I wasn’t about to lose my home and the shirts off our back over a lawsuit because of this dog. Will Pat go all pidgin-talkin’-smack-down-island-hood on me if I say I feel a tiny bit bad for the dog.
It is not acceptable for puppies to bite people, or other animals, unless they are in true physical danger and need to defend themselves. There are many techniques available for managing biting because not all dogs or people respond to the same method.
If you notice real aggression in your pup, consult your veterinarian, who will check if there is a medical reason for your pup's behavior.

Not only did he bite Maile on Pat’s watch, but when Pat threw him in the backyard Victor E. He was two and everyone told us we were crazy for taking in a big dog when we knew nothing of his past.


We had a bad experience with an adopted dog too, I always tell myself now that there is probably a reason they are up for adoption! If you allow puppy biting, it may get out of control and your puppy will not learn to control his bite. If you're starting a training program with the help of a qualified trainer, consider muzzling your puppy with a basket muzzle. Do not ignore puppy biting when you have a small breed dog by thinking that it does not matter because they are small. If you or other members of your family are in physical danger or fearful of the puppy, seek the help of an experienced Certified Dog Trainer or Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist (a veterinary specialist) immediately.[15][16]The longer the behavior continues unchecked, the greater the chance of escalation and injury.
This must have been tragic for your family, after you were being so open in letting this dog in to your lives. I would not have kept the dog, but I still feel bad knowing that he may not get a home again.
Get a puppy, yes they are a lot of work but at least you can teach it not to bite your babies faces off!
If we do a dog again it will definitely be a puppy…though there are no guarantees going that route either. Usually, they learn about not biting from other members of their pack, including adult dogs.
Your puppy will quickly learn to stop nipping or biting with the help of the muzzle, but muzzling is not recommended if you don't have a clear understanding of the training approach and goals.
Introduce him to all sorts of new experiences while he is still very young.[13] Enroll the puppy obedience training classes early on and reinforce his place within the family structure.

I could train him, read books, muzzle him, teach the kids (mainly Kainoa) how to respect his space and to never bother him when he’s sleeping or eating. There’s no way you could subject your kids and the daycare kids to the threat of a dog who has some anger issues. Once you train your puppy not to bite, you can move on to more fun things, like teaching him tricks. Social isolation and time outs can be an effective form of punishment for a pack animal.[1] You can also yelp when your puppy bites too hard. It might seem silly but puppies in a litter will cry out if a sibling accidentally bites too hard. You just want to startle the puppy, not harm him.[9] Be aware that the puppy will associate the water spray with you, and this could make him wary of you at other times. I bought him a muzzle and started training him to stay on a bed blocked out of the daycare area of the house.
