Separation Anxiety can be quite distressing for both you and your dog. Symptoms of separation anxiety may include excessive barking or whining, scratching, chewing, digging and other destructive behaviours.
Many of these symptoms are learned behaviours. Your dog sees they get attention for barking or whining, so continue to do this. It is important to only acknowledge and reward good behaviour, so your dog understands exactly what is expected of them. Obedience training is a great way to help your dog understand what it is you want from them, so they feel safe and comfortable at home.
At Bark Busters, we will help you understand why your dog is feeling anxious. By getting to the root cause, we can put an appropriate training plan in place to help your dog learn that it is ok to be separate from you.
