Preventing Puppy Dog Separation Anxiety - Resources



This is the fifth article in the series Preventing Puppy Dog Separation Anxiety where we will discuss the products to prevent separation anxiety and also to help your dog if he already is suffering from it. It is the Resources section of the series Preventing Puppy Dog Separation Anxiety and was written during the corona virus quarantine but is applicable for any time. It deals with recommended products and books to help your dog overcome separation anxiety. Please read my post on Dog Separation Anxiety for a description and understanding of what separation anxiety is.


The aim of this Separation Anxiety prevention program is to give your dog confidence so that he doesn’t have to be with you 24/7 and that he knows that when you leave, you will return. You will do that by promoting independence while you are home and give him something to do when you are gone.


Because you are home now and have time to do the training, you’re going to get some easy preventative measures in order to lessen the emotional toll on both of you now and the financial toll on you later so you don’t have to pay hundreds of dollars to work with a dog behavior consultant and purchase the supplies they recommend.


It’s gonna be a lot easier if you have some tools to help you. You will want to engage as many of your dog’s senses as you can, so there are listings of audio, olfactory, and tactile products, holistic/homeopathic products as well as products for mental stimulation, both for your dog (puzzles and chew toys) and you (books and other resources).


Before you begin your training, please get at least one of these products in each category since each dog is different and we don’t know which one he will respond to best. When you find the product(s) that are best for him, then get more and different products in those categories.


Please note that I receive a small compensation for the listings on this page. And I apologize for the repetitive nature of the headings – it helps in search engine optimization! Thank you.
