A Brief Guide on Dealing with Separation Anxiety in Dogs

 05/07/2018

Y

Separation anxiety in dogs is one of the most common phrases used by dog owners. A dog that appears stressed when the owner leaves home or just leaves the room is prone to have separation anxiety. Separation anxiety can be seen through a variety of symptoms such as attempting to escape from the crate or room, whining, barking, excessive salvation, destroying items in the home, scratching at walls, and doors.

Let’s have a look at the causes for this anxiety and treatment that is necessary to treat this condition in dogs.

Causes of Anxiety in Dogs

  • Any illness or painful physical condition can increase anxiety and contribute to the development of fears and phobias among dogs.
  • As dogs age there are certain changes in their nervous system as well. Infectious disease and toxic conditions, such as lead poisoning, may lead to behavioral problems, including fears, phobias and anxiety.
  • Fear from a terrible experience.
  • Dogs may become habitually fearful if they are deprived of social and environmental exposure until 14 weeks of age.

Cure for Anxiety in Dogs

It really starts the moment you get your puppy. All too often a puppy taken from the litter begins to cry when left alone. This is a big change for the pet; they no longer have the pack they were born with. When he cries, we go and pick him up and show sympathy and so his crying is rewarded. Later, if he is crying in a crate and if you let him out, he is being rewarded for his crying again. Remember! You must only reward him for desired behavior.

From the beginning, we should teach our pet to be quiet and settle down for increasing periods of time. We need to teach patience and calmness and reward that accordingly. We should not attempt constantly interact him, when he is out with us. We should let him learn to entertain himself with his toys.

Conclusion

In any case, the most important thing to consider here is that a restless dog at night is a condition that’s symptomatic of something more serious. It suggests that your canine buddy is having some issues and they need to be addressed as quickly as possible.
