Help for your dog’s anxiety issues including Dog Separation Anxiety. Training dogs to feel safer

Dog anxiety can almost always be traced back to the first two years of your dog’s life, a traumatizing event or both.
And while anxiety prevention ideally begins when a new puppy is born, there are several effective positive training techniques to improve or eliminate it in older dogs for each of the three main types:

  • Dog Separation anxiety (fear of being alone)
  • Dog noise anxiety (thunderstorms, fireworks, gun shots)
  • Dog social anxiety (fear of people and other dogs)

Anxiety in dogs has also been well studied and can be traced to the 5 phases of their behavioral development.

1 Neonatal - first and second weeks of life.

2 Transitional - during third week of life.

3 Socialization - extends from 4 to 10 weeks, and during the period between 4 to 8 weeks old it is crucial that primary social relationships are formed. Lack of socialization is the major reason why dogs become fearful of people, other dogs, other animals, or the environment.

4 Juvenile - 10 weeks of age until sexual maturity.

5 Adolescence and Adulthood - once puberty and sexual maturity have occurred, the dog can be considered an adult. Adolescence is between 6 months and 2 years of age.
