Distressed Dog Stay Home Alone
this seminar you will:
• learn strategies to change your dog's panic
and distress over you leaving;
• or find out how to avoid this common problem in your young dog.
of the most common complaints of pet parents is that their dogs
show signs of distress and panic such as urinating, defecating,
barking, howling, chewing or trying to escape when they are left
alone. Separation anxiety is triggered when dogs experience panic
because of a virtual or actual separation from their guardians.
Does your dog show some of these signs of
• Agitated or follows you around as you prepare to leave;
• Barks or howls persistently when alone;
• Is destructive when you're gone, sometimes around windows and doors;
• Urinates and defecates when alone but is typically housebroken;
• Salivates excessively (bedding may be wet);
• Tries to escape the crate or house.
• Rushes in front of you to try to keep you from leaving.
Some dogs suffering from separation anxiety become agitated when
their guardians prepare to leave. Others seem anxious or depressed
prior to their guardians' departure or when their guardians aren't
present. Some try to prevent their guardians from leaving. Usually,
right after a guardian leaves a dog with separation anxiety,
the dog will begin barking and displaying other distress behaviors
within a short time after being left alone-often within minutes.
When the guardian returns home, the dog acts as though it's been
years since he's seen his pet parents!
This seminar, taught by Dr. Lisa Radosta, noted board-certified veterinary behaviorist, can begin to help heal your dog.
In this seminar you will:
• Learn to recognize if your dog has separation anxiety;
• Be taught steps to begin to change your dog's distressed behavior;
• Be given some tools and exercises to teach your dog coping
• Understand how to help your dog be calmly independent
• Find out ways to prevent this problem from occurring in the first place.
• Realize that every dog is different and some strategies and modalities may need to be adjusted for your particular dog.
