Dog & Puppy Tips - How to Help Your Dog Learn To Handle Being Alone!

For most of us, we cannot afford to stay home with our dog 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It's just impossible and we can't take them everywhere we go either. All dog breeds can suffer what some call separation anxiety but the bottom line is that most of the time they are just simply bored to tears. You can figure out whether it's boredom or anxiety. For instance, if your dog is the kind of dog that is glued to you from the moment you are with him and even into the night and has to sleep with you and becomes destructive within the first few minutes you are gone, then it probably is separation anxiety. If you have a video camera you can figure this out right away. However; if that's not the case then more than likely your dog is bored.

Signs of separation anxiety could be any or all of these symptoms:

Your dog chews on different things but those things happen to be things that have your smell on them like clothes or a chair you sit in all the time. The dog is found sitting close to those things they chewed that has your smell. Your dog decides to go to the bathroom in many different places in the home. You find out that your dog barks all the time while you are gone, not off and on but constantly. Your dog will show these behaviors every single time you leave for no matter how long or short of a time you are gone.

Other things to look for is if your dog goes absolutely nuts over you when you get home but is still stressed out and won't leave you a lone even after you've been home for a while. If the dog doesn't seem guilty about the things they may have chewed up. Another clue is that your dog begins getting really nervous and upset when he sees you getting ready to go somewhere.

Some things that you can do to help your poor dog would be:

When you are getting ready to go and when you get back keep it boring and really low key. Make sure not to make a huge fuss over saying goodbye or hello to your dog. Simply treat it casually and always be really happy and upbeat.

It is important that all interactions that you have with your dog is always on your terms and not on his terms. Make sure that you give him attention, give him treats or take time out to play with him only when you want to and not when he wants to. He needs to know who is in charge.

Another thing you should consider doing is to give your dog some extra exercise. If you tire your dog out he's not only going to be happy but he's going to be a better dog and more than likely will sleep most of the day if you get him tired enough the night before. This exercise is not just physical, you need to exercise your dogs mind as well to completely tire him out.

Make sure that you don't draw a lot of attention to those forbidden thing before you plan on leaving the house. So this means, don't be going around straightening things up or point out to your dog what items you don't want him to be chewing on. This might be misinterpreted as the things that you want him to pay more attention to.

If nothing seems to work, you may have to consider putting him in a crate while you are gone. Some dogs actually feel safer and are more comfortable when they are confined in a smaller area when they are left alone. If you don't like that idea you can always try keeping your dog in one room and then leave some music on for him and some clothing that has your smell that really isn't that important to you but will be immensely important to him.
