Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Puppies tend to learn very quickly, so it will be much easier to train her to greet you in a calm and desirable manner the younger she is. Although it isn't an issue when she is little, you may be encouraging a bad habit that could be difficult to break later when she becomes an adult. As soon as your dog is calm and all four paws are on the ground, tell her she is being a good girl and give her a small treat or loving pat on the head.
Try to talk in a calm voice and use calm petting techniques to avoid your dog becoming too excited again. In the early stages of this training, you may be turning in circles several times, but your dog will soon relate her jumping to your lack of attention and stop. If your dog is too excited to notice that you are asking her to sit, ignore her excited behavior until she calms down, and then repeat the command.
With this simple command, the goal is to redirect your dog's jumping behavior with a task that should be easy to perform and then rewarded well.
Keep a special toy by your front door to throw for your dog or give to her when you come home. Instead of using physical punishment to discourage bad behavior, teach your dog what behaviors get them the most rewards from you.
When the dog jumps, walk into it and say "No." This gets the dog off of you and helps it to understand that is cannot jump on you.

Teaching your German Shepherd not to jump up on you or your guests may seem like an impossible task, especially if you have a dog who loves people (and people who love dogs)! Let’s work on changing that scene with three simple strategies for training your dog not to jump on people.


Jumping up can be a cute greeting when you have a small puppy or dog at home, but as time goes on, it can become quite annoying to you and your guests.
You will be excited to see your puppy as well, but if your puppy has this tendency, you can do this by practicing the no touch, no talk, no eye contact rule when greeting your puppy. This, in turn, will send out calming signals to her and will avoid getting her excited or anxious about your arrival. One way to teach your dog, no matter her age, that jumping up is not an acceptable greeting is to ignore her during this behavior. Again, as soon as she follows your command, give her lots of praise or a special treat to let her know this is the behavior that gets rewarded, not jumping.
Some dogs exude such extreme excitement when greeting someone that it may be difficult and time consuming to wait for them to calm down for a redirecting sit command.
The key to keeping your dog calm, and therefore exhibit calm behavior, is to also participate in only calm behavior when you come home. How many times have your guests been greeted at the door by your overenthusiastic German Shepherd’s nose and front feet, while you haplessly shout “No! You’ll have the most success with your dog if you use these approaches in combination with one another.
Teach everyone in your family these strategies, and soon your German Shepherd will have one more feather in his good manners cap.
Teaching your dog to calmly greet you and your guests, without jumping, will create a much more enjoyable environment to enter into after a long day at work or when receiving guests at home.
This involves turning your back to her and not giving her any type of attention, such as physical, vocal, or eye contact.
Most importantly, it is a great distraction technique for redirecting your dog's attention from an undesirable behavior, such as jumping up.


If this sounds like your dog, she may be more inclined to grab a toy and shake it or hold it instead. Through patience, dedication, and consistency, you will soon be greeted by a happy pup with all four paws on the floor.
Of course, your nose is a bit higher to reach so it is only natural that your dog will jump up to get closer to your face when greeting you.[1] This can be quiet annoying and unnecessary, but fortunately, the habit can be broken. When your dog jumps up on you, turn your back to them while keeping them in your peripheral vision. Then use the leash to keep the dog out of jumping up range, even tethering your dog in a secure location if necessary. When the time comes, have really great treats handy and either you or your guest can ask your dog to sit or down BEFORE the dog jumps. This strategy is a must for adult German Shepherds, or if your guests don’t like dogs, or your German Shepherd mouths and bites when he or she jumps. That's the beauty of this site." To new editors, she advises, "If you've got an interest in almost anything, use the articles to give you some ideas on what can be done, and what else you want to contribute to.
On the street, keep enough distance between your dog and anyone unlikely to follow your rules so the jumping isn’t reinforced (and follow Idea Number Three).
