Dogs can be disruptive or destructive when left alone & most of the dog owners complain about this common issue. Dogs suffering from this disease show a sign by excessive barking and salivation, whining, destroying items in the home, and floors, and attempting to escape from the room.
These problems often show that dogs need to be taught polite manners. When your dog is upset because of the separation from you, he feels bad since he is attached to you, & that’s the time when the separation anxiety triggers him. Your dog can cause household destruction or self-injury by the attempts of escaping.
Many dogs who suffer from this can become agitated when the owner prepares to leave & some other dogs may try to prevent their owner from leaving.
Dog Separation Anxiety Solution
If you take your dog to the vet, he may recommend & prescribe drugs, which can calm a dog’s senses, but the drugs are not a cure. Drugs can only provide a support mechanism to help you in rehabilitating your dog, but it is only a temporary solution.
If you consider taking medication for your dog, then you should follow the guidelines from the vet.
It’s better if you can take your dog to work with you, if possible. You can arrange for a family member or dog sitter to come to your home and stay with the dog while you’re working. This way you can overcome this problem naturally.
But the best way to solve this problem is by training your dog since the puppyhood. From the beginning, you should teach your pretty little puppy to be quiet and settle down for increasing periods of time. You have to teach calmness & patience to your puppy. This way your puppy will become less likely to suffer from separation anxiety & also a well-disciplined dog that you desire.
