Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
The dog whisperer often meets pet owners who have failed to provide their dogs proper exercise. Like a temper tantrum-throwing toddler without structure in its life, a dog without a set schedule is bound to become irritable and act out. You must have unwavering mental strength and confidence to gain the trust and respect of your dog during training sessions. It is easy to let a dog get away with eating off your plate "just this once," but in so doing, you are setting a dangerous precedent. Cesar Millan: All dogs can become aggressive, but the difference between an aggressive chihuahua and an aggressive pit bull is that the pit bull can do more damage.
Cesar Millan: Puppy mills – breeding without consciousness – often result in dogs that are wired wrong, with neurological problems due to the devastating breeding and living conditions they are in.
Your dog can sense if you are uncertain or fear it, so you must control situations by maintaining the role of an authoritative pack leader. We tend to give affection, affection, affection and this creates unstable dogs and bad behavior because then you have trouble earning your dog's trust, respect and loyalty. Most training seeks to teach dogs how to obey commands, while my philosophy is more about rehabilitation through exercise, discipline and affection.

And that's not a walk where the dog is peeing on every tree and barking at every other dog on the street … which will just put him in an excited state. Try a treat ball or a Kong toy, have him wear a backpack on the walk, go for a pack walk with your neighbors and their dogs, or play a game with him, even for 10 minutes before you leave the house, that challenges him to use his nose. In many of the red-zone cases I see, the human is missing the fundamentals and not fulfilling the dog's needs. When these needs are met, the affection you give to your dog will be channeled as a reward.
If a dog's presence in an off-limits room annoys you, focus on this aspect of the dog's behavior instead.
While there only is one pack leader, the other family members still are dominant to the dog, and they must treat their relationship with it as such. The legendary dog-training guru shares his proven techniques for humans to be strong pack leaders and improve their dogs' behavior.
A dog may be very well-trained and still be unbalanced, just as a balanced dog may not be trained. Leadership is about showing the dogs -- through your actions and energy -- what you expect of them.

The reality is that most people have to go to work and leave their dogs alone for several hours a day. They are not loving to the highest degree because this takes putting the dog's needs first -- and doing what you need to in order to earn the dog's trust, respect and loyalty by providing leadership through rules, boundaries and limitations. So you need to get the dog, right from puppyhood, used to that reality so the dog gets used to being alone without exerting frustration. Remember that dogs are a reflection of us, so when we work with them, we are also working on ourselves. You might be surprised at how quickly the dog settles down and looks to you as his pack leader for direction.
