If you’ve ever had a pet that just couldn’t cope with you leaving him alone, this short book may help you. I currently have a pup who is suffering from separation anxiety and I like to look back on some of the tips in this book from time-to-time to help me refresh what I should be working on.
The booklet doesn’t have all the answers. My dog isn’t food motivated, and this guide doesn’t address that, but it’s a good place to start if you are looking for information on how to begin addressing your pups anxiety. Just understand that it’s more of an introduction to the problem you are experiencing and not an all encompassing guide.
Additionally, I have employed an animal behaviorist in the past. Books are a great beginning, but when you don’t do this for a living it can be hard for you to see the triggers you are activating in your pup. I recommend you see someone who specializes in anxiety in dogs, in addition to doing your own research.
I recommend this instruction guide for those just in the beginning stages of their education regarding combating separation anxiety.
You can find it on Amazon in multiple formats.
