Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Puppies may cry and bark in a crate out of natural habit, since they are accustomed to whining to get their mother's attention. Always leave the door open to the crate when he is not in it, so he knows he can enter it when he wants to.
Make sure your puppy is getting plenty of exercise so he is tired when he enters the crate. Put a ticking clock in the room with your puppy to simulate the heart beat of another dog; your puppy is used to sleeping with its brothers and sisters. A stuffed animal can be of great comfort to your puppy; a little larger than them is usually a good fit (make sure it does not have any plastic parts for your puppy to chew on).
TOP TIP – tell your neighbours you are expecting to get a puppy but you have a training schedule already worked out to minimize any noise during the night.  You can even organise when you pick your puppy up so that it is at a weekend in order to ensure you are not disturbing any neighbours that are due to have an early start.
Puppies at that age should not be left in a crate with the door shut overnight until atleast 12weeks.
I have two older dogs that I have had since puppies and just got a 8 week old puppy we have just survived the second night. I’ve had a 7 week old maltese for about a week now and he whines when he wakes in the middle of the night because me and my boyfriend are sleep and he wants to play. I have a 17 week old pit ill mix and about a week ago she started whining at night she sleeps in the bed with me and my husband. Hi I have an 8 week old puppy who whines persistently at night she gets tons of cuddle time, play time, training and a couple walks each day.
I just adopted a 14wk old puppy, she is toilet train, this is the third day now, she had accident the first 2day I had her but I think she was just nervous. So i have been reading all of these posts and i have to say i feel a bit better knowing that my fiance and i are not the only ones going through puppy problems. I have a 8 week old puppy I have had her for few days but she will not stop crying and barking at night if u leave her on her own in the kitchen she barks and crys and it keeps u up most of the night but I have school she has start scratching the door. Hi we have a choc Labrador who is now 15 weeks old , we have had him since he was 9 weeks old he cried terribly on the first night home in his crate and woke up the whole house including the kids who are still young .
My puppy after about a week or two was perfect in a crate, at night, in the car, during meals. Just google it if you want to know more but it works so well in cars, if you take them to work, during meals and at night.
You can do this by thinking carefully about his circumstances, observing the exact time he begins barking and then working out how he might be feeling, when you know how that barking Shih Tzu feels you will understand the behavior better. Lack of suitable exercise; if the dog is not walked or mentally stimulated enough during the daytime then he may not have used up his energy.
Needing to toilet; if your dog is getting older he may not be able to hold himself through the night as he used to. Wanting attention; if you have a Shih Tzu puppy and have done everything right, regarding his introduction to the home, but he is still calling you at bedtime then he may have learned to call because you always come. Take a look at each of these reasons for the Shih Tzu that hollers the house down at lights out and ask yourself honestly what your dog is feeling and what you can do to help him cope when left at night. First and foremost, your puppy needs a safe place to call his own when it's time to hunker down for the night. A great way to encourage your puppy to sleep through the night is to tire him out enough during the day so he drops like a rock at bedtime. An empty belly and full bladder are good motivators to wake your puppy from even the deepest sleep. Puppies learn what works, and if whining and making noise at night get you up and interacting with him, he'll keep doing it.
If he is a new puppy that has just arrived at his new home, he is probably used to being with other puppies and his mother.
This puppy training method will pay you back ten fold and being consistent will enable your puppy to cope with being left alone during the day and help prevent other attention seeking behaviours whilst you are busy around the house.


He keeps me up all night crying and once I left him alone at night and he pooed everywhere.
I would suggest leaving the door open and put paper down outside it for the pup to go the toilet.
My family and I have never had a puppy before we usually own older dogs aged 2 plus, but we fancied a change and to experience a puppy. I I got him at 9 weeks and he’s always slept in my bed, I no longer want this so I have moved him into the kitchen in his crate. However during the night, he tries to climb my bed from time to time when he wakes up to take a pee, my bed being high and unreachable for him, he keeps trying and starts whining. She has just been a nightmare with her sleeping and toileting so much so that my partner wants to sell her. I have spent the past few days trying to make her crate a happy place for her by feeding her there giving her treats and toys and she doesn’t mind it during the day but cries for an hour (give or take a bit) each night. Following this advice our beagle pup has gone from needing close physical proximity and howling through the night to being fine left alone. Here are some of the more common reasons for night time barking, take a look and ask yourself whether any of these could apply to your own Shih Tzu. The Shih Tzu dog when separated from his human in the dark hours may feel more insecure and develop barking in order to try and bring the owner back.
If your dog is left alone at night but never in the day then he may be barking because he is stressed by the isolation. The dog that starts calling for his owner in the night, during his senior years, is usually too well-mannered to toilet indoors despite his desperation. Take him outside for a walk and offer plenty of opportunity to play and expend his energy throughout the day.
Your 2-month-old puppy is probably just getting used to solid food, and following a three meals a day feeding schedule. Crate training and careful food and potty schedules won't mean anything if you keep giving in when he cries at night. I have her in a playpen, with puppy pads, big comfy bed, blankie, food and water bowl and plenty of chew toys. I don’t want him to soil the crate but I also do not want to go down to him and cause. However the first night of having the Puppy (which was 2 nights ago), I decided to sleep downstairs with her for the first night because I could imagine how scary it must be. Most of the night me and hubby were like zombies yesterday but we knew not to go down and see to him. The first night he howled for hours, second night he was quiet as a mouse but the last two nights back to howling and crying.
The main problem is been left alone if I go out she howls and at night, she has a room under the stairs big enough for her with toys water pads etc but doesn’t like it.
My boyfriend too has a great job and we’ve talked about adding a puppy to our lives SINCE college.
Rescued dogs usually bark for the first few nights and then settle down when they know the routine.
It is totally unfair to expect a Shih Tzu to relax all day and then just go off to bed and be quiet all night.
Your job is to work out why then find doggy life enhancements that help your dog to cope in the dark without barking all night long. Train your puppy to head in during nap times or at bedtime and ignore whining or other behavior when he's inside. At 2 months old he probably still takes regular naps, so utilize his awake time as much as you can. If his last meal of the day was too far away from bedtime, his nightly wakings may be hunger related.


Then second day every time he fell asleep during the day I put him in his bed near me then by evening he put himself in there twice. Of a night time I have a ticking clock wrapped up in a shirt I’ve worn in her bed which soothes her for about 30 minutes before she starts crying again loudly. I have an excel sheet with all the up front costs (initial vet costs, cost to purchase pup, crate, food, toys, leash, collar etc etc etc) and potential costs down the road – such as medicines, additional food, behavior classes. When I got my puppy we created a puppy safe area in my house with a doggy door to the back yard for when he’s home alone. For puppies any attention is good attention, so even if you tell them off its something for them.
When you start training, leave him in the crate for short periods, and let him out only when he's calmed down and stopped fussing. If you wrap the clock in a towel, the clock is protected and the pup can lie against the towel as he would his mother.
She is in our utility room with a baby gate stopping her coming through to the kitchen, we have pads on th floor and she has access to her crate in the utility room. You can leave puppies in their crates at night but it’s not recommended during the day. Increase the amount of crate time gradually, and he'll associate the crate with a place of calm and rest.
Teach him that the middle of the night is for sleeping, and ignore any playful behavior he may try to initiate. Happy to leave him in his crate from 11ish til 6 but don’t want him to soil his crate. Last night was much better he cried for a while then went quiet then again at 330 for awhile but no were near as bad as the first night.
Does anyone have any suggestions about putting anything warm hot water bottle or similar in her crate to help her!!
I’m just so exhausted from the sleepless nights and would really appreciate some help ! He weed and pooed and settled back in his crate for another couple of hours, though whined a little before settling. Tonight will be first night of tough love as been sleeping downstairs with her all week only to keep our lovely neighbours happy but it’s the weekend now so it needs doing as cant sleep downstairs forever. Pick up his water dish about two hours before bed so he doesn't have to potty in the wee hours of the morning. We have fiund we have to play with her more before bed because she often likes to sleep and then is up all night. He has his own room with his crate but like I said above I can’t leave the crate open because he scratches the door and will end up lieing on the cold floor. Weekends we will keep feeding schedule and walking schedule relatively the same, but we like to go out of town and hike or take the pup to the dog park near us to let him run around, but also puppy classes to help him socialize during the first few months.
I have tried leaving his food and water in the crate too but he just ends up making a mess. I’m just concerned about my pup not being socialized ENOUGH or having issues being crated 3-4 hours at a time during the day.
I had many tears and sleepless nights over this with the first pup I know how soul destroying it is.
