Anxiety Problems Solved

Dogs are as different as people.But the problems they exhibit are often easily identified and relatively easy to treat. In my packages, it will be discussed.

One is Anxiety. Separation anxiety is a psychological disorder in which some dogs suffer if they are left alone. Not all dogs are affected and where some dogs react badly to being left alone while others have no qualms. The effects of separation anxiety usually begin to emerge after 15-45 minutes after the dog is left alone. There are a number of ways your dog can respond – unfortunately one of them destructive and undesirable. The behavior he may show include:

– To scratch the doors and windows in a wild attempt( at his owner to come)

– Continue to cry and bark until someone comes home.

There are several reasons why a dog can be so afraid. He might  not be used to being left alone and if he is left alone,it’strange and scary for him. Maybe you always been home, but you just got a new job, so his whole world is upside down and so the routines. It may even have a change of environment, for example if you have moved and he is left alone in an unfamiliar environment.

Some of the rehabilitation methods that work well are:

– Try to enter your dog while his bowl on your lap. Place your hand near the tank, try not to touch your dog, talk calmly to him.

– Stay cool with him. Sit and talk quietly to him, not closer to him. Try his trust by moving your fingers the same way your leg move.

– If he has specific fears, try to gradually re-acquaint with the object or situation that causes anxiety. For example, if he is afraid of people, leave some to your dog and leash up without trying to touch him. Once his confidence has grown people can start to touch him.

– Using a muzzle is a good idea if you are unsure how your dog reacts in a certain situation and especially when children are involved in that situation. It may take some time pass before your dog is used to make one to wear, make sure you use the muzzle allows him to breathe normally and to drink.

If none of these methods deter your dog to bite, then you should contact a professional dog instructor (behavior specialist). Such a person who is able to go deeper into your dog’s individual psyche and dive to learn new behaviors.
