Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Training your puppy to stay off the furnitureSome puppy owners encourage their puppy to sit beside them on the couch, while others find this behaviour unacceptable.
If you choose not to let your puppy on the couch, or other furniture, it's best to train him to stay off the furniture while he is still a puppy, before he gets too used to getting comfortable on the couch.
Let your puppy know what is allowed, in a clear and gentle manner.Your puppy may like to be on the furniture for many reasons. If the couch is located near a window it may be even more appealing, as it may give your puppy a look outside.ConsistencyFirst, decide right from the beginning if you will allow your puppy to sit on the furniture.


If you allow your puppy to cuddle up beside you on the couch at some times, and not others, he won't be clear about what the rules are. If you decide as he gets bigger that you don't want him on the furniture anymore it may be a hard habit to break.
Do this consistently to encourage the behaviour you want, and eventually you will not have to physically lead your puppy down from the furniture—giving the command in a firm voice will be enough.
You may want to provide your puppy with his own bed so he can get comfortable on the floor and will be less likely to climb up on the furniture.


The bed should be kept in a central area of the house, where your puppy is not lonely and can interact with the family.
