Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
If you have a puppy or an adult who has never been leash trained, begin with short, positive sessions.
If your dog has already formed the habit of pulling on his leash, you must convince him of two things: Pulling will not hasten his arrival at his goal, and walking politely will make you happy enough to reward him.
Punishment and pain can also lead to an escalation of bad behavior and in some cases even aggression toward the owner. This type of training is more effective because it builds a bond of trust and cooperation between animals and human, the animals (and the human) actually look forward to training! Leash training, like most dog obedience training is less problematic if we can break it down into straight forward, manageable steps.
Scheduling multiple training sessions throughout the day will help your dog learn more quickly because dogs like schedules and he will look forward with happy anticipation until you can go out again! I like training right before breakfast, lunch or dinner because my pups are hungry and pay more attention, and I can even use their kibble (food) for reward! I take for granted the knowledge that I have accumulated from over 20 years of dog training. 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.


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!
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.
Hi Minette, I never had a problem with my puppy he took to the lead straight away day I got him. Even if he’s a whirling dervish or major-league puller, there will be times when he stops the craziness enough to let the leash go slack. Give a treat every few steps at first, increasing the distance you walk between treats until he forms the habit of walking at your side without treats. I believe all dog should be trained well enough to be walked on a buckle collar or harness alone, no dog training collar to over-use or rely on! Skinner one of the leading researchers on reinforcement found that positive reinforcement is superior to punishment in altering behavior because positive reinforcement results in lasting behavioral modification and punishment changes behavior only temporarily and presents many detrimental side effects.


Even a pint-sized pooch can take the fun out of a walk if he pulls, spins, and jerks you around, and good leash skills are also important for safety, both your dog’s and your own. When he is properly leash trained, your dog will walk steadily on one side of you with the leash slack. If his weaving or circling is wild enough to pose a risk, shorten your leash so that he has to stay on one side of you, and reward him when he does. 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. Like many other aspects of good training, teaching him to do this will require some time and effort, but the payoff is a dog who is a pleasure to walk. Simply hold your leash firmly, turn around, and walk at a normal speed in the other direction.
