SEPARATION ANXIETY TREATMENT AND CURE FOR DOGS

Healthy Pitbull Puppies with no Anxiety

THERE MAY BE MANY CAUSES OF SEPARATION ANXIETY - BUT ONE CURE

Dogs are Pack Animals. The pack instinct controls every aspect of a dogs life. If his PACK STRUCTURE is a strong one, and is clearly defined, the dog is confident in his environment. Now if you take the dog out of his environment and remove him from his pack, he is likely to experience separation anxiety.

Separation anxiety can manifest itself in many different ways. The key to solving most separation anxiety issues is to establish pack structure. Make sure you read my page on PACK STRUCTURE TRAINING


RESTORE YOUR DOG'S CONFIDENCE WITH PACK STRUCTURE TRAINING!

If his PACK STRUCTURE is a strong one and you are his pack leader and you demonstrate your leadership, most separation anxiety issues with dogs are resolved.



ESTABLISHING PACK STRUCTURE CAN CURE SEPARATION ANXIETY

Now everyone who owns a dog can tell you what pack structure is, but very few understand it. In fact, many are not capable of being pack leaders because of preconceived thinking. Remember, dogs are not people, their thinking is very different from most of us.

What you may think is cruel, is what your dog understands and in many cases desires. (Now of course, I am not talking about beating a dog). The pack instinct is hard wired into them. Before you understand how to solve dog separation anxiety, you have to understand how the pack instinct controls a dog.

EASE YOUR DOG'S ANXIETY BY BECOMING THE PACK LEADER

I could write a book on PACK STRUCTURE, yet something comes to mind, and that is that "a picture is worth a thousand words". For this reason I am going to recommend that if you are serious about solving dog separation anxiety with your pet, that you pick up a copy of Establishing Pack Structure with the Family Pet DVD by Leerburg. The video demonstrates what Pack Structure is and how to establish yourself as the pack leader. Once you begin to apply the techniques, you will notice your dog's confidence grow as he becomes more confident in you and his place in the pack. In my experience, most dog separation anxiety issues can be cured by simply employing effective Pack Structure training with your dog.


Pitbull man's best friend

USE ANOTHER DOG TO RELIEVE ANXIETY

I learned this trick from my Uncle's African Grey. I had him for a month while my Uncle was away, I did everything I could think of to teach him how to say "I thought I saw a Putty Cat"; all to no avail. When my Uncle returned I asked him how to teach it to say something. His answer, I did not expect. He indicated that they are motivated by jealousy. Simply stand someone else in front of the Bird's gage and tell them to say something, when they repeat it, you praise the person. Repeat the process in front of the bird and they want in on the action to receive the praise.


SEEING ANOTHER PRAISED WILL MOTIVATE YOUR DOG

So, if your dog has anxiety while on a leash, place him in a kennel and walk another dog in front of him on a leash, praising him as he obeys commands, giving him treats. Then take out the dog with anxiety issues and place the other dog in the kennel. Then let him try it. You may have to run the exercise a few times before the dog's anxiety is cured. Of course the same thing can be done with many other separation anxiety issues a dog may have. I do have to say again, that your success with such a technique will depend upon the pack structure you have created around the dog. Best wishes.


BEING A PACK LEADER IS TOO HARD- WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?

Of course I am a realist and realize that not every problem of separation anxiety with a dog has an easy solution. I also know that not everyone has what it takes to be a pack leader and therefore will need another solution. Recently, I was at someone house and she had two small dogs. The entire time I was there, the dogs were jumping on me and my companion. The dog owner kept chasing the dogs around, hollering at them to stop. Finally she somehow got the dogs in the house. She forgot however that apparently there was a doggy door, and in seconds they were out jumping on us again. I never mentioned that I was a dog trainer and that I could solve the problem in a matter of just minutes, because I could plainly see she was not up to the task. Any gains made by me would be short lived. She did not know how to be a pack leader. Training dogs is simple. Training people to become pack leaders is another story.
