How To Help Your Dog Deal with Separation Anxiety

March 20th, 2012 Pets

If you've recently brought a new dog home, you may find yourself dealing with a very excited pooch every time you return home from work. Unfortunately, your pup may be dealing with separation anxiety, which means he could also be chewing on things and making a lot of noise while you're away. According to Cesar's Way, separation anxiety manifests itself because, in the wild, canines are almost never separated from their pack. Fortunately, separation anxiety can be dealt with very effectively. Here are some tips to help ensure your dog can keep his cool while you're away.

One of the best things you can do is take your dog for a nice, brisk walk before you leave for work. This can help tire him out and place him in "rest mode" when you leave. Another idea is to avoid making eye contact or being overly affectionate right before you leave and immediately after you return. The goal is to teach your dog that the time spent apart is no big deal. If you absolutely must tell your dog how much you're going to miss him, do so a little while before you go. He won't mind that you didn't say goodbye, but it makes it easier for you to leave him alone.

According to the Humane Society, you can also create a "safe room" for your dog while you're gone. Make sure it's relatively open so that he isn't in total isolation. Having a window with a view that changes frequently (such as a street) is a great idea. Leaving him with an article of clothing that smells like you can also calm his doggy fears.
