If your Dog has severe separation anxiety,
here’s how to treat it
Dogs with severe anxiety can’t be distracted even when they are offered the most delicious treats. You will need to gradually get them used to your absence.
When they see signs that you are leaving, such as getting dressed, putting your shoes on, or taking your keys out, they might get anxious. Do this several times daily and do something else like sitting at the table or watch tv but don’t leave.
Slowly, your Dog will feel less anxious about this. Then You can start disappearing for some time. First, close the door of a room while your Dog is outside of it and ask him to stay. After a few seconds, reappear. Slowly increase the time. Get dressed, grab your keys, or put on your shoes. And Ask your Dog to stay while you go to another room.
You can increase the time of your absence as the Dog becomes more comfortable with the “stay game”.then use an outside door instead, but not the one you use every day. Before you leave, make sure your Dog is calm and relaxed.
Only you can decide if your Dog can be left alone for long periods of time. Take it easy, and don’t rush things. When you have built up to 10 seconds, give them a stuffed treat.be always calm When you go away and when you come back
Slowly increase the amount of time until you are able to leave your house for some minutes. You can then stay away for longer and longer periods.
