Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
The Airedale originated in England as an all-around working dog, hunting small game and guarding homes. A native of Turkey, the Akbash Dog is a striking white flock guard that has made a name for itself on American farms and ranches, where it successfully protects livestock from grizzly and black bears, wolves and coyotes. Honored in its native land as a national treasure, the Akita is the largest of the three Japanese breeds belonging to the spitz family of dogs. An extremely rare breed, the Alaskan Klee Kai is a smaller version of the Alaskan Husky; it was designed to be a companion version of the great sled dogs of the north. Terriers come in a wide range of sizes and shapes, but they all share a feisty, mischievous personality and an energetic nature. Many Terriers have hard, wiry coats that must be plucked or stripped of dead hair to retain the proper texture; using clippers will soften and lighten the coat.


Terriers are known for their sassy personalities and their penchant for picking fights with much larger dogs. Noble ladies discovered the dog was equally capable of decimating mice populations in their closets, so at least some Affenpinschers moved up to fancier social circles.
At one time its ownership was restricted to the nobility, who used the breed to hunt large game such as wild boar and deer. Most of the breeds in this group are small, such as the Norfolk and Cairn, but there are also large terriers in the mix, such as the regal Airedale.
They're protective of their people and property and establish their territory at a young age. Terriers were originally bred to hunt and kill vermin, and their bodies were designed to get into tight places to track down their intended prey.


The terrier's instinctive desire to chase small animals makes them ideal for single-pet homes only. They will terrorize cats or other pets incessantly, and it’s nearly impossible to train the chase out of a terrier. These breeds typically do not enjoy the company of other dogs, unless they are raised together from a young age. When they are properly socialized, Terriers make ideal pets for seniors, empty-nesters, or families whose children are a bit older.
