Dogs are social animals and need human companionship. It is almost impossible for a dog to be left alone. Dogs will do anything to relieve themselves if they are left alone. They can bark, chew, and even dig if they are not supervised.
The problem is that your dog may only respond in this way when you are away. Can separation anxiety be managed in dogs? Yes, there is! Training is the key to treat separation anxiety in dogs in an effective way.
Training can help your dog to be comfortable being alone, just as it is possible to train a dog to go fetch, poo, and pee in the right places. This is a step-by-step guide on how to manage separation anxiety in dog behavior.
1. Do not make a big deal about leaving
Do not make it a big deal about saying goodbye (eg, paying more attention to it the day before). This will only increase the stress of being left alone. Give your dog a treat before you leave and let him go.
2. 2.Keep your dog entertained
It is important to keep your dog entertained while you are out. Give your dog a treat and let it choose its favorite toy.
3. Good dog training techniques are important
Good dog behavior is important. Don't over-exert yourself or give too much attention to your dog. Encourage your dog to play on its own, and praise him/her accordingly
4. Stress relief: Exercise your dog
Regular exercise is important for your dog. Exercise can help dogs relieve stress, just like humans. Regular exercise can help your dog stay healthy, strong, and balanced.
5. Do not punish your dog
No matter what you do, don’t punish your dog if your dog is acting out. Separation anxiety in dogs is not intentional behavior.
6. Do not ignore the problem
Do not ignore a dog suffering from this condition and expect it to go away. Retrain your dog now.
