Persistent Dog Anxiety And Fear

Cesar, I have a two-year-old Pomeranian who is afraid of everything; and so worried about things falling on him.  Although since I’ve had him (about one year), nothing has fallen on him.  He even approaches his food dish as if a snake will attack at any minute. Drinking water is the same, he is always prepared to run away. I have tried to show calm and assertive direction and a matter-of-fact attitude. Is there anything more I can do?

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,

Is Your Dog Addicted To You?

Like dogs, humans can experience separation anxiety, although usually for rational reasons. People generally don’t feel anxiety because their spouse went to work or their kid went to school. But it’s normal to feel it if your spouse works as a firefighter, or it’s your kid’s first day at a new school; worse if your kid is a teen who just got their license. The Power Of Love There is one irrational reason humans will have separation anxiety, though. That happens when we fall in love. When the object of our affections isn’t around, nothing feels right in the world.

Aggressive Dog With Separation Anxiety

Dog with separation anxiety growls at owner Hi Cesar! My little Frankie is three years old. I have had him since he was born. I have never had a problem with his behavior until the past few months. It seems every time that I leave the house to go to work or go out on the weekends to run errands he gets upset. He does not destroy anything in the house, but when I go over to him to say to goodbye and pet him right before I leave the house he growls at me. The first time it happened

Mourning Your Dog

Dear Cesar, Just a few days ago we had to put our 10-year-old dog down. She left behind her 8-year-old “sister.” Nikki seems to be moping around the house and seems like she’s in search of her sister, the only thing she’s ever known. It’s heartbreaking. Please let us know what we should or should not be doing. This is hard for us as well and even heartbreaking just to watch her go through this. We don’t want to give her attention when she’s in this state. Thank you, Alicia Hirtzel London, Ontario Canada Hi Alicia, First, I offer you

Scared Of Sounds Inaudible To Humans

Do You Have Issues With Your Dog When it Comes to Sounds We Humans Cannot Hear? Below you will find a letter from one of our fans and my answer in how to deal with this issue. _____ Hi there, My dilemma is my nine-year-old Border/Queensland mix Scarlet has trouble with noises.I do my best to redirect and distract. It seems to do her some good to put on the leash and ‘work her’ while she is troubled. This is something that I am still working on, providing that I can hear what she hears. Sometime there are ‘noises’ that I can’t hear

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. What is Your Dog Addicted To? 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
