Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Dogs descended from wolves, and deep within the psyche of your dog lies instincts it has retained from its wild ancestors. Of all the animals that we have domesticated, only the dog has willingly allowed itself to accept the authority of man without constraint. An example of fear aggression could be a dog that sits in its owner's lap and growls at people or other animals.
If you have a problem with your dog growling at you or another family member, you may want to try having the person your dog growls at the most be the only one to feed him.
When a dog is constantly leaning on you, putting his paw on you, or touching you in some way, this is not your dog loving you, it is your dog displaying dominant behaviors.
The Material contained herein may not be reproduced without the prior written approval of the author. This is a threat and it means your dog sees you as a subordinate meant to be dominated by him.

I cannot stress enough the importance of introducing your dog to different places and people.
A dog that is constantly nudging you and leaning on you is not only disrespecting you, it is being the alpha dog. That is how we ended up with groups such as herding, hunting, shepherding, guarding, and of course, companion and lap dogs. When a child reaches to pet the dog or hug Grandma it could bite them if it is allowed to get away with this antisocial behavior. Affection should only be given when the dog is being calm and submissive, never when the dog is excited, anxious, scared, nervous, etc., or you will be reinforcing that state in the dog. A pet that is well-behaved and obedient can sleep next to you or your child, so long as it was the humans that invited the dog up.
When he acts afraid of something that he should not be afraid of, do not pick him up and ooh and ahh over him.

If you just can't be without your dog in the bed, at the very least you need to make sure he sleeps at the foot of the bed and not on your pillow. Volunteer with disability groups so children and adults with special needs can enjoy the non-judgmental love a dog or puppy can provide. You will often hear people say "Now, you know Granny's dog doesn't like you to go near her.
Sometimes we have to use tough love, but in the long run, you and your dog will be happier if you maintain the alpha role.
