Separation Anxiety

Broken Hearts Club

Canine Separation Anxiety

Is a very real and prevalent behavioural problem experienced by many dogs and their owners.  It is an unhealthy extension of a dog’s deep rooted need for human companionship.  There is a very fine line between a dog who is socially drawn to human companionship and one who suffers from separation anxiety.

The old expression of too much of a good thing can kill you definitely applies to 

Separation anxiety can show itself through some well know symptoms such as :

  • Barking and whining when left alone
  • Destructive Behaviour
  • Soiling in the house or crate
  • Digging, biting and fighting with the crate
  • Excessive drooling or panting when left alone and after your return
  • Self harm i.e. lick granulomas, compulsively chewing on paws or tail

Our goal for our dogs should be to have an emotionally balanced and well adjusted pet. A dog who enjoys our company, wants to be with its people and at the same time is comfortable on it’s own in the absence of the owner.  Helping dogs with separation anxiety find this balance is truly art. it is a creative process that forces a trainer to examine the dog, it’s many components that come together to build the dog’s personality and equally examine the lifestyle with th owner to understand the dynamic at play.
