You arrive home from work to a crazy, spinning, whirlwind of energy. Your dog follows you to your bedroom, where you find that she has chewed up your very expensive pair of shoes.
Your next door neighbor comes to complain to you that your dog has once again been driving the neighborhood crazy by howling all day long.
If this scenario is familiar, then your dog is probably suffering from separation anxiety.
Here are 5 tips to help you deal with the separation anxiety:
Taking your dog for a walk before leaving the house
You should try starting your day by taking the dog for brisk walk. Use a dog pack with additional weight in it to make the walk even more rigorous.
Afterwards, reward the dog with food and water for it’s calm-submissive energy. Even though some dogs need their rest before eating, all dogs can use some hydration.
The idea here is leaving the dog in a calm and relaxing mode while you are not around.
No talk, no touch, no eye contact
Do not make a great deal when leaving the house and when coming back. In so doing, you are communication to the dog that being apart isn’t a great deal.
Depending on the level of anxiety in your dog, you may have to practice the rule for 5 minutes up one hour before leaving and once you get back.
