How To Stop Separation Anxiety In Dogs

Separation anxiety in dogs is a difficult problem to solve, it took me few months and now the problem solve! It all started 1 year ago when I adopt Jimmy- a 3 weeks old beagle puppy I've been with him all day long cause I didn't work then, but after 2 months i started working outside for 9 hours a day, 5 days a week. At the beginning when I came back home every day, Jimmy was chewing a lot of my stuff, I thought that he is a puppy so it is a regular behavior ,but after I worked few weeks my neighbor came to me very angry and said that my dog barking all day long nonstop, and he waking him up at 7:30 am, I was so sad cause I didn't know what to do, I love my dog and I don't want to give him a way but I don't want to upset my neighbor, what can I do?

I started learning about this disorder from the internet, and I discovered that it effects a huge percentage of the dog Population from small dogs to big dogs, a lot of people don't fix this problem and they suffer and also the dog - cause they are trying to fix and stop the symptoms and not the reason for the symptoms.

The answer to how to stop separation anxiety is to teach your dog that you are the pack leader and not him if your dog thinks that he is your leader you need to teach him that it's not true and you are his leader First you need to recognize the following behaviors as symptoms.

My dog becomes terrified and begins to destroy his environment, my shoes, eating walls and more. Sometimes he even urinates; he barks nonstop here are the symptoms for dogs separation anxiety:


Barking, whining

Escaping when you are not there

Digging, destruction



Separation anxiety is a disorder that you must solve, it took me 4 months till it solved it's not easy, but if you love your dog and really want to solve it - it's possible, you need to really want to do it and be patient - cause it's not cure over night the problem that your dog thinks he is the leader so he "tell" you what to do, so how come you live the house without his permission?

I did it, and now Jimmy happy and I'm happy and my neighbor not angry with us anymore...
