Using Pressure to Treat Your Dog’s Separation Anxiety
What Is Dog Separation Anxiety?
Leaving your dog or puppy home alone is never easy, but for many dogs, separation
from their families can cause severe anxiety and real problems. Veterinarians and
trainers call this condition “dog separation anxiety.” Based on our
survey of over
2,000 dog owners in the United States, over 13% of all dogs suffer from separation
anxiety. And the consequences can be severe for your dog, your family and your property.
Symptoms of Separation Anxiety In Dogs
According to our surveys and other sources (such as the ASPCA), separation anxiety
affects older dogs and puppies alike, and can include a wide variety of symptoms
such as indoor urination, defecation, destruction of furniture, barking, howling,
chewing, digging, escape attempts and other anxious behaviors. Some dogs express
it as restlessness, an attempt to keep you from leaving, or the appearance of general
depression. It’s heartbreaking to know that your dog is suffering while you are
away, but separation is an unavoidable reality for most families. Thankfully, there
are solutions to try.
Stories From Dogs With Separation Anxiety
“We found Popeye running down the street in our new neighborhood and took
him in as a foster until he can be adopted out. It became apparent that he suffers
from extreme separation anxiety. He destroyed blinds, doors, baseboards and walls.
He has managed to escape from every crate we tried, hurting himself in the process.
His anxiety quickly transferred to the rest of my family, never knowing what we
were coming home to was taking its toll. We tried herbal remedies, Prozac, sedatives,
diet changes, distractions, kongs, TV’s and training – nothing worked! Then we invested
a measly $40 in the ThunderShirt and our entire lives have changed. The difference
in his demeanor was immediate. We can now leave our house in peace knowing that
it will look the same when we get back. Even more importantly, Popeye is set up
for success when we manage to find him a lucky forever family.”
