Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
First, if your dog has repeatedly defecated in the house, then your dog should not be allowed to run amok enabling him to continue his inappropriate behavior.
When you’re home, instead of allowing your dog to run free throughout the house, we recommend that you tether your dog to you with a thin, nylon, 6-foot leash.
Tethering passively prevents accidents while allowing you to actively teach him appropriate housebreaking rules.
However, inappropriate defecation can have several underlying causes that make the problem more complex. So, the crate will passively prevent him from having accidents while teaching him superior voluntary control of fecal behavior.
In such cases, for the best resolution to the problem, you may need to treat all the causes at once. Therefore, you shouldn’t allow an irresponsible dog to teach himself proper housebreaking behavior. If after reading the long version you are still uncertain of the cause of your dog’s inappropriate behavior, or remain unable to effectively treat the behavior, you may wish to consult a competent local trainer or behaviorist who schedules in-home private consultations and specializes in resolving complex housebreaking problems.
If she can't get out she uses the piddle pad to pee, but only once has she used the pad to poop. Recently she has been pooping all over the house mostly right in front of us and sometimes with guests around.


Of course, she chased it all over and ran it out of her territory, like every other instance a cat was in the yard. But, this time the cat who was guarding kittens, fought back, and they ended up in quite the tangle before I got them to stop it.
Since then, every time I let her out, she goes straight to the shed instead of doing her business. Even now, fostering this stray dog who was living outside, she immediately started pooping on my floor at night.
We got a new dog about 3 years ago, everything was fine until he hit puberty and that's when the problems started. The Boxers had been potty trained for 4 years, they started marking territory and fighting so badly that we eventually decided to give the new dog to a different family. They were left for 30 minutes with the back door open and they peed right next to the open back door.
I was thinking about going back to kennel training like when they were puppies, but I'm not sure if that is the right thing to do. She has somewhat learned to move around the house again independently and has gained a lot of activeness back, but she has also started doing her business in the house when we are at work or during nighttime.
We take her out in the morning before work and right after getting back and she eats one meal a day around 6pm.


I'm out of ideas what to do with her and my husband is starting to get fed up with this and wants to get rid of the dog. We have a doggie door for our dogs that is open night and day, and she uses it all the time.
She'll be half squatting with her tail up and just start going as she's walking around the house.
She's a happy, loving dog and isn't in pain other than a bit stiff when getting up (so am I, but you're not putting me down either.) She still plays and trots around a lot. I mentioned it to the vet the last couple of times she was there and they just said "she's old and is starting to lose her ability to know when she needs to go". I made the pen with 4 large pieces of wooden garden lattice from the hardware store which are hinged together on 3 sides - leaving a gate effect.
I then lined the lattice with plywood - stapled it on with housing staple gun to prevent the dogs climbing the lattice.
