Dog Separation anxiety is a serious problem. This website is dedicated to helping you solve your dog separation anxiety issues.
My first dog is a border collie cross named Scout that I got from a shelter. She developed separation anxiety when she was just six months old. She was abandoned in a school yard at 4 weeks, and spent the next 5 weeks of her life at a shelter. I got her when he was 9 weeks old and he was a handful for the first couple weeks, but quickly became an excellent companion except I COULDN’T leave her alone!!!
I was living in an apartment at the time. If she didn’t stop barking, I was going to have to give her back to the shelter. This was NOT an option for me. I took another option. I learned every single thing I could about dog behavior and separation anxiety…..There is some very good advice out there, but a lot just doesn’t work. Scout was my test dog, poor girl! It took us about 2 months to completely cure her anxiety, but I did some follow up with her as part of normal training to make sure it stayed away. I was so excited to see the improvement in my dog, I had to take it to the next level and worked with friends and family to help out with their dogs.
I have nearly a 100% success rate with the dogs I have taken in. Some of them have improved almost immediately, others have taken a little longer. Every dog is different, and every case is different. You have just as much work to do as your dog!
