Dog Separation Anxiety? Or is it Us?

Severe cases of dog separation anxiety honestly are not that common. Take it from a professional dog trainer who gets called for “dog problems” every day. Not to say it doesn’t happen but many times this behavior is mind and is being perpetuated without us even realizing why. And the good news is you can change some simple habits and have life be better for you and the dog.

Read this article:
Separation Anxiety: Is it You or The Dog?

In many cases the truth of the matter is as people we don’t understand how dogs think and learn. With a little diligence, research and possibly the help of a professional trainer the concept of pictures becomes very clear to everyone.

Finding a Lost Dog or Pet

Unique Dog Beds

The worst feeling imaginable by dog or pet owners would be not being able to find your beloved best friend, confidant, and loyal partner. Accidents do happen unfortunately and the number of people that can relate with something as awful as losing their dog, cat or other pet is more staggering than one would think.

People tend to go a little crazy in the initial reaction and the search for a lost dog or pet turns to chaos. It is of utmost importance that the search start immediately of course. Just try and be a somewhat organized about it and save yourself from wasted time.

Make sure your dog or pet has tags always. This will help with the search greatly as people do tend to want to help any lost dog or cat. When tags clearly identify your pet the chances of return go way up.

Pets 911 has created a really helpful website to assist with lost animals. With the help of the World Wide Web getting word out is easier than ever. The lost and found link is very easy to use and you can list a lost pet or submit a found stray.

Check out the Pets 911 website and bookmark the list lost and found area.

Keep a list of important contact numbers and emergency website information available always to refer to; In times of distress its hard to think. Have it available for yourself, your family, any one who takes care of your home, and especially anyone taking care of your pet.

Good Things To Have On Your Pet Emergency List

  • Your vets phone number and address

  • A 24 hour pet emergency vet clinic

  • Local Humane Societies

  • You Pets registered id tag/microchip numbers

  • Pet Poison Help Line (24 hour service 800-213-6680

  • Your address (for pet sitters, house sitters, etc.)

Enjoy the unconditional moments of pure acceptance your dog or pet gives you and remember you are training yourself and your pet all the time. It’s just a matter of what you are practicing and encouraging!

The most important decision you'll make in your dog's life.... it's debated but watch the video. Used correctly remote collar dog training is the most gentle, fair method for a dog to get great training.... to really get an understanding of what word goes with what action...

In short you are able to direct your dog into behavior. Unlike you may be thinking... or how someone else has described it... remote collar is NOT about correcting your dog.

At least the way we teach it. Its about being able to tap your dog on the shoulder and direct them into what you have been trying to get them to understand forever!

It's really cool... find out more....
