Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
The first step in obtaining peace and quiet is to realize that lots of barking is caused by the dog being lonely, bored, frustrated or frightened. If your dog lives in the back yard most of the time, she probably needs "social exercise." She needs walks around the neighborhood, so she can investigate all the sounds and smells that tantalize her while she is in the yard. Until you have re-trained your dog about her barking habits, she should be confined to a place where she will cause the least disturbance. Most dogs instantly stop barking because they can't sniff and lick the treat while barking.
If she barks even one little wooflet after you've given the command, scold her immediately.
When your dog stays quiet for the required period of time after you've asked her to please, "Stop Barking," she is rewarded. If your dog's excessive barking has already become a habit, don't expect the barking to get under control overnight. A dog who is left alone all day is likely to take up barking as a hobby because no one is there to control him. During this quiet time praise her continuously - - "Good girl, stop barking, what a good quiet dog you are, good dog .


When she makes a mistake, your unsuspecting poochie's very next wooflet should be met with a cataclysmic, earthshaking 120 decibel "STOP BARKING!!!" Most dogs are so totally shocked and amazed by this horrendous outburst that they will stare at you in disbelief (and silence). If this outburst makes your dog more excited, then you might try an ice-cold I-mean-business tone of voice. However, you, your neighbors and your dog will all be much happier if the barking is under control. And for many dogs, once they start barking, they tend to continue barking for the sheer fun of it. Within a single training session, you can teach your dog to stop barking for up to 1 or 2 minutes. Instead of barking relentlessly at the insignificant, your dog will be barking appropriately and for a reasonable length of time.
You may also want to have disconnect switches on the telephone and doorbell if these set off a barking spree. The next time she barks, require her to stop barking for 5 seconds before she gets the treat. This is major progress, because whatever set off her barking in the first place is history, and she is likely to be quiet until the next disturbance.


It is important that you maintain this new good habit through practice and praise or your dog may revive his old annoying barking habits again. As soon as your dog stops barking, even for just a tenth of a second, you must immediately and instantly reward her. Provide your dog with fun things with which to occupy himself, such as a digging pit or special chew toys.. Then tell her, "Stop Barking." Simultaneously, waggle an especially tasty food treat in front of her nose.
For the same reason, it is easy to forget to praise and reward your dog when she is not barking.
