Separation Anxiety - Dog Training in Milton

Below is a good video on some techniques to follow when dealing with separation anxiety. We utilize some of these techniques ourselves and they WORK! As a disclaimer, not all dogs will react the same to a single method, however, this offers a good base to follow with different options.

In our opinion, the best thing you can do for a dog with separation anxiety is add some control in their life, teach them a "Place" command, and DO NOT allow them to trail you around everywhere (of course, that paired with a good obedience foundation). They start to learn that it's ok not to be glued to your hip, it builds their confidence and reduces anxiety when you move away from them. And remember, a crate is for your peace of mind and your dogs safety, so don't be afraid to utilize it in your training.

Thanks to Solid K9 Training for allowing us to share this video.
