Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
It's not unusual for a dog to bite or gnaw at her forepaws from time to time, but there's a point at which it can be harmful. If an allergy is the suspected cause of your dog chewing herself, there are a few different ways you can help alleviate the discomfort she is feeling and effectively stop the chewing.
No one likes the thought of their darling pup having fleas, but those annoying parasites can be the cause of a dog chewing, licking and scratching to the point of hair loss and bleeding. If your dog is bored, she might resort to chewing on her feet or other area of her body just out of needing something to do. Whether your dog is chewing her feet or nipping at a spot on her haunches, there is an underlying reason why she's doing it.
Many times an allergy is a reaction to the dog's diet or to something introduced otherwise.

Making sure she is mentally stimulated will keep her busy enough to stop her chewing habit.
It is a serious problem, but if you recognize it and take steps to deal with it, your dog will lead a happy life without resorting to chewing for relief of anxiety.
Assorted dog foods on the market are formulated for dogs with allergies, so switching your dog's food may do the trick. Groom your dog well daily with a flea comb and dip it into soapy water between strokes through your dog's fur.
Having plenty of stimulating toys available -- specifically ones that involve chewing -- helps to discourage chewing by encouraging a positive alternate activity. Putting a few drops of eucalyptus oil in your dog's shampoo when washing her will repel fleas.

Adding brewer's yeast and garlic to a dog's food has been known to discourage the little blood-suckers, too. Interact with her as much as possible when you are home, giving her ample exercise and consider enrolling in a training course for dogs and their owners. If it is possible, consider getting a second pet -- dog or cat -- to keep her from feeling lonely and give her an entity to interact with while you are away from home.
