Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
We suggest enrolling in a positive reinforcement, punishment-free Puppy Kindergarten in your area as soon as possible.
Now, you and your puppy are ready to take your first real walk together.Train your puppy to sit, before you put the leash on them. Not only will you learn how to correctly walk your puppy, they will have the added benefit of learning to walk comfortably with other dogs.The simple act of walking in a pack with other puppies helps to desensitize, and teach your puppy how to cope with other dogs while on walks. Many dog owners dread the thought of walking their dog, because of the pandemonium that occurs at the door, as soon their dog sees the leash.
Getting your puppy accustomed to walking properly on a leash will spare you a lot anxiety, and make walking your dog a pleasure.
They will learn to associate the faster they sit, the faster the leash is attached and the faster the walk begins.This is also the time to teach them humans exit first.


With a puppy, you should be able to comfortably fit a finger between the collar and the dog.Until your puppy gets accustomed to their new bling, never have them wear it when unsupervised. Let them learn to cope with these contraptions they will be wearing for the rest of their life.After you see that they are comfortable with their leash dragging behind them, without any fanfare pick up the end and follow them. Make your puppy wait, until you have cleared the threshold, then give them the OK to join you.By tradition, as a rule dogs are on the left side of the handler.
Puppies have choked to death, either by getting snagged on something, or getting their foot or leg caught between the collar and their throat, if it is too loose.For walking, a training collar is preferred. This goes back centuries of hunters routinely holding their rifles in their right hand, and leading their dogs with their left.Call your puppy to your left side. Most dog training classes require a 6-foot leash, and do not allow the use of retractable leashes.


A 6-foot leash offers the dog enough of a radius to explore or take care of business; yet, it still affords you control.
Once they get the hang of the walking thing, their shoulder and your knee should be aligned, and ideally there will be a relaxed U in the leash, between you and your dog.You may need to carry a few items of bribery the first few times you initiate the real walks. These walks with your puppy will form the foundation for the bond of a lifetime.Follow Karen A.
We suggest carrying a squeaky toy or even hanging a plastic bag of treats, where your puppy can see them, from your pocket or belt.
