Hello Dog Lovers! Thanks for tuning in! I’m excited to chat with our guest today, Doug Poynter, who has been helping dogs and training people for over 25 years. In his experience almost all Dog Behavior Problems can be traced back to a human/owner issue. Doug is passionate about teaching people the humane, gentle methods he uses that actually work to change their dogs’ behavior!
Doug, Separation Anxiety is a pretty common issue right?
What are some of the signs of separation anxiety?
Do puppies get separation anxiety the same as dogs that are adopted later in life?
I would have to think that for owners that don’t have the time, money or patience to work with an afflicted dog, that they just give the dog up for adoption or maybe even worse…like euthanizing?
Can you explain why punishment is ineffective, inappropriate, and will only exacerbate the behavior?
What’s the difference btw distress vs anxiety?
And is it true that there is a difference btw isolation and separation?
So, how can you condition a dog to accept being left alone?
Do relaxants such as Rescue Remedy, CBD or aromatherapy help?
What’s the time limit that a dog can be left alone?
