Treating Separation Anxiety In Dogs

By Malena DeMartini-Price

I strongly recommend getting a copy of this book if you are trying to work through separation anxiety on your own or with a trainer.

It goes through a step by step process on how to cure your dog of separation anxiety.  While it is written for trainers, anyone will be able to understand the simple step by step process.

Available in print or digital on Amazon.ca.

Web cams are an important component to making sure your dog doesn’t go over their threshold when beginning to desensitize them from being away from you. The following cams have been highly rated and come with apps you can download on your phone making them easy to use, and always accessible no matter where you are.

This camera is a little more than the Wyze, but it has alerts allowing you to get alerts on your phone when loud noises happen (dog barking).

Stuffable Chew Toys

Use any of the toys below to stuff your dogs food to help them begin to associate their crate and you leaving more positively. Making your dog work for their food in their crate helps them begin to release endorphins helps them begin to realize that being in their crate, or you leaving home is not so scary. For instructions on how to stuff your dogs kibble in a stuffable food toy watch the video below.

Kong Classic

Stuff this toy with your dogs food or favourite treat and freeze it to keep them busy.

West Paw Tux

West Paw Tux

This stuffable chew toy can also be used as a great toy for fetch as its shape causes it to bounce erratically so your dog can’t predict where it will land. West Paw also guarantees all of their zogoflex toys with a replacement plan.

West Paw Qwizzl

The qwizl is an all-time favorite, as you can put chew sticks inside, making for a more challenging chew. Bully sticks fit inside like a charm. This toy can also be stuffed with other treats and food.
