Separation Anxiety

Separation Anxiety

One of the most common complaints of pet parents is that their dogs are annoying or destructive when left alone. Your dogs may urinate, defecate, bark, howl, chew, dig, or try to escape. Although these problems often indicate that a dog needs to learn trained manners at home, they can also be symptoms of suffering. When dog problems are accompanied by other painful behaviors, such as drooling and anxiety when parents are preparing to leave the house, there is no evidence that the dog has not been trained or does not know which toys to chew on. Instead, these are indications that the dog has anxiety about separation. Separation anxiety is triggered when dogs are disturbed by separation from guardians and the people to whom they are attached. Attempts to get rid of dogs with separation anxiety are often extreme and can lead to self-harm and destruction of the house, especially around exit points such as windows and doors.

Some dogs who suffer from separation anxiety are upset when their caregivers prepare to leave. Others seem upset or depressed before their guardians leave or when their guardian is not present. Some are trying to prevent teachers from leaving. Usually, as soon as the caregiver leaves the dog with separation anxiety, the dog will begin to bark and show other disturbing behaviors shortly after being left alone – usually within minutes. When the caregiver returns home, the dog behaves as if they were last year since he saw his mother or father!

When treating a dog with separation anxiety, the goal is to address the dog’s basic anxiety by teaching him to love or at least tolerate loneliness. This is achieved by configuring the dog to experience the situation that is causing it, ie. To be alone, without feelings of fear or anxiety.

Common symptoms of separation anxiety
The following is a list of symptoms that may indicate separation anxiety:

Urination

Some dogs urinate or defecate when left alone or separated from the guard. If your dog urinates or urinates in the presence of his guardian, the dirt in your home is probably not caused by separation anxiety.

He barks and screams

A dog suffering from separation anxiety may bark or howl when left alone or when separated from a guardian. This type of bark or howling is persistent and does not seem to be triggered by anything other than being left alone.

Chewing, digging, and destroying

Some dogs chew on objects, doors, or window sills, dig doors and gaiters, or destroy household items when left alone or separated from their parents. This behavior can result in self-mutilation, such as broken teeth, severed and scratched paws, and damaged nails. If a dog’s chewing, digging, and destruction are caused by separation anxiety, they do not usually occur in the presence of his guardian.

Fleeing

A dog with anxiety about separation may try to escape from the area where it is confined when left alone or separated from a guardian. A dog may try to dig and chew through doors or windows, which can lead to self-mutilation, such as broken teeth, severed and shaved front legs, and damaged nails. If the behavior of a running dog is caused by separation anxiety, this does not happen when its guardian is present.

Tempo

Some dogs walk or drag them along a certain path in a fixed pattern when left alone or separated from their parents. Some compassionate dogs move in a circle, while others move back and forth in straight lines. If a dog’s rhythmic behavior is caused by separation anxiety, this usually does not happen when his guardian is present.

Coprophagy

When left alone or separated from a caregiver, some dogs defecate and then consume all or part of their feces. If a dog eats feces out of anxiety about separation, it probably doesn’t do so in the presence of a guardian.

Why do some dogs develop separation anxiety?

There is no conclusive evidence that shows exactly why dogs develop separation anxiety. However, since many more sheltered dogs have this behavioral problem than those maintained by one family since childhood, it is believed that the loss of an important person or group of people in a dog’s life can lead to separation anxiety. Other less dramatic changes can also trigger the disorder. The following is a list of situations associated with the development of separation anxiety.

Change of guardian or family

Leaving, handing over the shelter, or giving to a new caregiver or family can trigger the development of separation anxiety.

Program change

A sudden change in schedule in terms of when or how long a dog is left alone can trigger the development of separation anxiety. For example, if a dog keeper works at home and spends all day with his dog, but then gets a new job that requires him to leave the dog alone for six or more hours in a row, the dog may develop anxiety about separation. because of this change.

Change residence

Moving to a new home can encourage the development of separation anxiety.

Change of family affiliation

The sudden absence of a family member, either due to death or change, can trigger the development of separation anxiety.
