Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Often it can seem like fun when a puppy is very small but when your dog grows to 35kg and can jump 5 foot high it is not so funny. I have found that many owners with dogs that jump up are unsuccessful as they have been advised to ignore the unwanted behaviour  of jumping up and reward the dog when calm with all four paws on the ground.
To retrain a jumper upper safely and in a fair way you have to communicate effectively what you want so the dog understands.
If the dog makes a mistake at any stage of the training ,don’t worry its not the end of the world simply go back a step and lower any excitement.


As training progresses I like to build in excitement and actions which create excitement in the dog.
View mistakes as learning opportunities, by not being clicked and rewarded your dog is learning what works and what doesn’t. With particularly boisterous dogs who are committed jumpers I start the training with them on lead. Patience, consistency together with lots of repetitions during short training sessions ( 10-15 minutes max)  prove to be most effective.


Clicker training works as it marks an action which is then rewarded so the dog is more likely to perform the action again , you are therefore aiming to click and reward as much as possible so don’t be mean with the clicks!
