New Jersey Dog Separation Anxiety Training
Jersey Shore Dogs' separation anxiety treatment program helps alleviate your dog’s anxiety & the bad behaviors that come with it, when left alone or without its owner.
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, dog separation anxiety is one of the most common canine behavior problems and is diagnosed in 20-40% in North America. With recurrent distress ranging in severity from mild anxiety to uncontrollable panic, it is one of the most difficult problem behaviors to overcome and is emotionally distressing for both dog and owner.
When left alone, dogs with separation anxiety will typically display a variety of behaviors or physiological signs showing that they are in distress. This may include:
- Puddles of drool
- Urination or defecation immediately after owner leaves (even with a housetrained dog)
- Excessive vocalization (barking, whining, howling)
- Extreme destruction of property (chewing/digging at doors or windows)
- Excessive licking (to the point where the fur is gone and skin is raw)
- Excessive pacing and/or panting
- Sweaty paws
- Constantly tries to escape from crate or penned area
When you ARE home, the dog may follow you from room to room and/or start getting anxious or depressed when you prepare to leave the house. At times, they may also showcase inappropriate behaviors.
Jersey Shore Dogs offers a simple, step-by-step treatment plan for dog or puppy separation anxiety based on the severity of your dog’s distress that will greatly reduce, and sometimes completely resolve, this issue. It is important to remember that you are not alone and with the right help and appropriate measures in place, your dog CAN get better.
