Dealing With Dog Separation Anxiety

One of the most common phrases used by owners to describe a dog that appears stressed when the owner leaves home—or just leaves the room—is separation anxiety in dogs. We can define separation anxiety as a dog problem behavior that shows itself through symptoms like excessive salivation, barking, whining, destroying items in the home, scratching at walls, doors and floors, and attempting to escape from the crate, or room. Simulated vs. true dog separation anxiety There is true separation anxiety, and there is simulated separation anxiety, in which the dog behavior appears to be separation anxiety but it is, in

Your Dog Has A Secret

I hate to break it to you, but your dog is an addict. She may appear absolutely normal and function perfectly well, probably follows commands (usually), and plays nicely with others at the dog park. But if she doesn’t get her fix regularly, it can make her a little crazy. If this description seems harsh, then it’s because humans tend to associate the word “addict” with the word “drugs,” and you probably have an image in your mind to go with it — some disreputable looking person, dressed shabbily, lying in an alley with a needle in their arm. I’m

Time For The Holiday Hunt!

There’s a tradition in the U.S. called Thanksgiving, which, since 1941, has been celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. Traditionally, families gather together to share big meals, usually centered on a whole turkey, along with all “the fixings’” — mashed potatoes, dressing, cranberry sauce, and yams, with pumpkin pie for dessert. It can be a really big deal, with preparation beginning early in the morning, the feast happening in mid-afternoon, and the festivities dragging on long into the night. And in modern times, it’s not just limited to family events. People living far from home often gather with unrelated

Tricky Treats

It’s Halloween season again, and if you live in America, you’re probably not far from elaborately decorated homes and there may even be a haunted house attraction or two in your town. There’s a reason that it’s one of the most popular holidays, along with Christmas. People like being scared in safe ways. That’s why a lot of us watch horror movies, or go on thrill rides, or visit escape rooms. There’s something about the excitement of facing fake danger that many people enjoy. A big reason for this is that we know that the scares aren’t real, and we

Help The Dogs Of The Northern California Wildfires

First came Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, flooding Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. Then wildfire, fanned by vicious Diablo winds, swept over Santa Rosa and the California wine country, displacing thousands of humans and their pets and destroying complete neighborhoods. Because most emergency shelters for humans are unable to house animals, many beloved pets required temporary placement in animal shelters.  With shelters closest to the fires filled beyond capacity, surrounding agencies sprang into action, taking in hundreds (if not thousands) of displaced pets. There are many ways you can help, but the best gift you can give is cash. It

Letting It Be

When a dog is misbehaving, what’s the one common element, no matter what the problem is? Think about the misbehaviors: jumping on people, pulling on the walk, barking too much, peeing in the house, chewing things up, being aggressive, being fearful… They all sound like a lot of different issues, don’t they? After all, the same thing can’t possibly make one dog aggressive and the other fearful. A dog won’t bark for the same reason that it pulls on the walk. Right? Yes, and no. The behaviors are very different, but they are all signs of one particular thing being
