Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Purchase a whistle to train your dog with (this is optional if you can whistle loudly easily). Do not hit or harm your dog in any way if it does get out or does not understand its training right away. If you do not want to purchase treats, a small piece of cheese or cooked chicken breast will work just as well. If you brought your dog home as a puppy before 12 weeks of age then you probably experienced the joy of your puppy sticking close and following you no matter where you went. Cookie Or Toy Toss: Using a treat or toy your dog dearly loves, toss it out a couple of feet in front of you. Call Between Friends And Family Members: Have toys and treats available and take turns calling your dog between you. Your dog may think he was born to run away, but your patience, consistency, training and management can help your dog learn to stick around.
This same sentiment was echoed by Kevin Duggan, CPDT-KA, owner of All Dogs go to Kevin LLC in Kent, Ohio.

Teaching Stay At The Door: After teaching your puppy to sit, you can now start teaching your puppy to stay. With patience, consistency and fun, you will have a puppy who is far more interested in being with you than running off to explore on his own.
Believe it or not, this life stage can be just as exhausting when it comes to raising dogs.
Then, one morning, your puppy was no longer following you but running off in the opposite direction. This is when strange things, noises and people who they have not yet been exposed to can be very scary. This foundation work with your puppy is the ounce of prevention you need to set the stage for an adult dog who would rather stay with you than run away. The adolescent period of dog development starts between 12 to 16 weeks and encompasses the next couple of years, depending on the breed.
He was right by my side, and then, all of a sudden, he took off running out of the driveway and down the street.

A great way to engage with your puppy is to toss a toy away from you and then, as soon as he gets it, run away from him. Do not leave him off leash or unattended in a yard where, if he gets scared, he can run away.
No matter the cause, running away is a preventable behavior if you use patience, consistency and proper training. If he gets distracted, I do not repeat the cue but instead clap my hands or pat my leg and coax the puppy back to me.

    Clear "No!" if he nips on you can inflict damaging bites as well; do not.
