Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
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. My dog has separation anxiety and only shows this behavior when I am the person leaving her.
My husband and I have a pup, who shows real signs of separation anxiety and appears to be a clingy puppy.
I ended up using a bark collar on my dog in a crate to teach her to be quiet, I have found that vocalizing seems to build the stressed behavior that goes along with separation anxiety.
I have found that the sensitive dogs are the most likely to have this problem, but you have to be firm about it or it can escalate into a real neuroses. More than half of my clients bring dogs into their lives from shelters or other situations in which the dog’s history is unclear.  And a fairly large percentage of those have some sort of behavioral issue, such as fear-based aggression, barrier frustration (on leash or behind doors or gates) or, the subject of today’s post, separation anxiety.


However, just because after you leave for work your dog tears up furniture, soils the carpet, or barks all day, it does not automatically mean he’s suffering from separation anxiety; he could just be bored out of his mind or under-exercised. Having owned well-trained dogs all my life, I started Better Nature Dog Training to exploit decades of experience teaching across a number of fields. I teach people how to effectively train their dogs by clearly demonstrating that every interaction counts when training a dog to come when called, for example, or instructing a puppy how to best get along in life. This entry was posted in Dog Training and tagged dog behavior, dog separation anxiety, dog training, separation anxiety. Dogs who’ve been properly introduced to their crate tend to feel safe and secure in this private den. The problem I have been having with him is I think he may have a bit of a separation anxiety issue. Dog training is not rocket science its simple common sense ideas on how to handle and train a dog,  The DVD has over 3 hours of training information.


The scientific aspect comes from understanding dog psychology from an evolutionary perspective, knowing how dogs are both similar to and distinct from their ancestors, including the grey wolf. In some cases, dogs prefer the sanctuary of a crate to being left alone in a big open house. We give this video to all of our puppy customers and we never get questions on how to raise a pup. In fact, a diagnosis of separation anxiety in no way precludes a healthy and happy existence for your dog.
