Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
5.There are also indoor dog containment systems available that activate a citronella collar whenever your dog approaches the system’s movable base, and you could place this base near the litter box. Dustin recently realized how deep his love for dogs was when he caught himself whistling while picking up dog poop in the back yard.
Place the litter box(es) in a room that you can gate off in some way so that your cat has access but your dog does not. Use a taste deterrent on your cat’s feces, such as finely ground black pepper, crushed hot pepper, Tabasco® sauce, or Grannick’s Bitter Apple® spray or gel. You can use a cat door or a baby gate that the cat can climb over or under but your dog can’t. Empty soda cans positioned above the box so that your dog knocks them over, a motion-activated alarm and Snappy Trainers all work well.


You must apply the deterrent consistently to the feces for a significant period of time so that he comes to expect that all cat feces taste horrible. Hitting him with a newspaper or spanking him probably won’t stop him from eating feces, and it might cause more serious problems, such as fear or aggression.
You can use an accordion-style gate that has openings large enough for your cat but not your dog. Be aware that you can only implement this procedure for specific periods of time when your dog has access but your cat is confined away from the box. Your dog will get used to wearing the collar, and this will minimize the likelihood that he’ll associate the punishment with wearing it.) Position yourself where you can observe your dog from a distance or without being seen. For this treatment to be most effective, you will need to restrict your dog’s access to water for 10 to 20 minutes after he has tasted the deterrent.


The instant you see your dog place his head in the litter box, blast the air horn or activate the collar. Do NOT use any type of verbal warning or else your dog will learn that the cat litter box is fair game unless you’re watching him. You’ll need to apply this deterrent every time your dog attempts to eat cat feces and persist until he shows clear avoidance of the box for several weeks.
