Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
According to the experts at Pet MD, “Separation anxiety in dogs usually results in destructive behavior when an owner leaves the pet. Separation anxiety causes some pets to be extremely destructive while their owners are away. Other behavioral conditions may mimic separation anxiety so it is important to analyze the symptoms and history of the dog. Separation anxiety can result from suffering a traumatic experience, such as a major earthquake or becoming lost in unfamiliar surroundings.
Unfortunately, sometimes separation anxiety just isn’t preventable, especially with an older dog. Anxiety type behaviors can oftentimes be contributed to a lack of leadership skills and confidence in your pet.


Dogs who’ve been properly introduced to their crate tend to feel safe and secure in this private den. Crating is a great special place for some dogs but if your dog doesn’t like it, do not force it upon them. In some cases, dogs prefer the sanctuary of a crate to being left alone in a big open house.
For example, teething kittens may need appropriate things to chew on or not be fully housetrained and may not truly be experiencing separation anxiety.
In fact, a diagnosis of separation anxiety in no way precludes a healthy and happy existence for your dog. These dogs will usually behave in an excessively excited manner when the owner returns home.


Plus as Amber pointed out, it can help as white noise to blur out other scary outside noises such as other dogs barking or the trash truck that might set them off. While your dogs breed or past traumatic history (shelter or rescue dog) may have some influence, it can also me induced by a change in schedule or family structure.
