Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
I ended up installing a 6-foot metal gate in the doorway of my bathroom to keep her away from the kitty litter. If your dog is not getting the proper nutrition from his food, he may be more likely to ingest feces because he is looking to instinctively replace those nutrients his body is lacking. When a dog gives birth and is raising her puppies, she will lick them around the anal area to encourage them to poop. This is instinctual behavior — not only does it keep the area clean, but removing the feces lessens the likelihood of attack by predators.
Just as stress and poor diet can contribute to a dog eating poop, the availability and high amount of it certainly does not discourage the behavior.


Puppies need puppy food, adult dogs need adult food, senior dogs need senior food, and many dogs have various health conditions or breed requirements that necessitate adding or adjusting types of food. Sure, no wolf or bear is going to come strolling into your house, so she is perfectly safe with her pups. You will want to start her on medication to treat the infestation right away if she does have worms or parasites. Leaving him alone for the better part of the day could be a reason for his sudden fascination with feces. You’ll reduce the smell and have a cleaner backyard, and this also helps keep flies away.


Yelling at or punishing your dog for instinctive behavior is likely going to upset her and the puppies, and she may not be able to overcome the drive to lick.
