Are you Making Your Dogs Separation Anxiety Worse?


Learn About The 3 Biggest Mistakes Even Smart Dog Owners Make That Keep Them Struggling With Difficult Dog Behavior (and how to prevent making these simple mistakes yourself)

DorisRecognising the signs and symptoms of Dog Separation Anxiety is essential to your dog’s wellbeing. Some dog owners don’t even realise their dog is suffering from separation anxiety, instead assuming their pooch is badly behaved.

Dog separation anxiety is a real condition, which causes your dog immense distress. If you have identified the signs and symptoms in your dog and believe he has separation anxiety, here are the three biggest mistakes owners make without even realising it!

Believe it or not, we actually contribute to our dog’s separation anxiety. Of course we don’t want to leave them alone. In fact, we hate seeing them distressed or seeing ‘sad face’ before we leave the house. We want to do the best for our beloved pooches yet all our care and concern can actually make our dogs separation anxiety symptoms worse.



  Getting Mad at Your Dog and Punishing Him

This mistake is usually out of frustration because your dog has ruined your new thEXCTJJZZshoes, or ripped those beautiful new cushions you just spent a fortune on, or you’ve come home from a stressful day at work to a big mess for you to clean up.

Then there is that big happy cute face to greet you when you come home. After all he’s been waiting a long time for you to come home to him. He doesn’t understand why his mum or dad is mad at him, he’s just happy to see you!

There is no lesson to be learned by punishing your dog. He does not know what he has done and doesn’t do anything destructive on purpose. You need to catch them in the act before you can correct the behaviour. So unless you see him chewing your new shoes or ripping your new cushions to pieces, you cannot go mad at him or punish him. He doesn’t understand and it will only confuse him and heighten his anxieties. Do you really want to add to your dog’s already anxious state? No of course you don’t!

Remember dog separation anxiety behaviours are NOT the result of disobedience or spite. Your dog is genuinely distressed. He is upset by being left alone, and is trying to cope with his stress. Anger and punishing him will only increase the problem and it will get worse.



Making a Fuss When Leaving or Coming Home

Dogs pick up on cues when we’re getting ready to leave, such as putting on shoes or picking up your car keys. This is when their anxiety starts.


We don’t want to leave our dogs when we know they’re going to be stressed and dogs can sense our own anxiety about leaving them. This increases their fears. We don’t like leaving them at home, and often make the mistake of over compensating for it, by making a fuss before we leave. This is usually by way of saying long farewells and telling them we won’t be long, lots of pats, stroking, or belly rubs. Whichever it is, we’re only exacerbating their anxieties and fears of being left alone.

Dogs think they are our protectors; they need to watch over us and keep us safe. This is extremely comforting when we’re out walking at night or alert us to strange noises when we’re at home. So, when we leave the house, they can’t protect us when we’re gone and then they worry until we return safely.

They are super excited to see us and act as though they haven’t seen us in years. This is a huge sense of relief for them that we have returned to them safely.   This leads to another common mistake we make which is making a huge fuss when we get home. It’s easy to mirror their excitement, as we too are as excited to see them.  Afterall who doesn’t love coming home to a big smiley face and a waggly bum?



Getting Another Dog

This is another common mistake made by owners of dogs suffering separation anxiety. It seems logical to think that another dog will keep himth3MHFT0CC company and less anxious when you’re not home.

The problem is, your dog only wants you. Yes, adopting a second dog will definitely be company for your dog, but it will not alleviate your dog’s separation anxiety for you!

In fact, it could actually have the opposite effect and give you double trouble! In some cases, both dogs could have separation anxiety, feeding off each others anxieties.

There is a lot to consider when looking at this option as a mate for your dog. It is not a decision to be made lightly. Do you adopt an adult dog from a shelter or get a puppy? Adult dogs and puppies bring a different set of potential problems.

Adult Dog vs Puppy

Depending on his background and history, an adult dog will have his own personality with his own antics, behaviours and possible fears and anxieties. Was he abused or neglected in his former home? If the answer is yes, then he will probably have his own set of fears and anxieties.


A puppy, on the other hand, brings along innocence in the form of a big ball of cuteness, but no manners. Puppies require training from an early age to learn accepted behaviours, but will require a lot of patience. Depending on the breed and temperament of the puppy, he may end up copying your dog’s fears and anxieties.

An important consideration is the temperament of your dog and the potential new dog. Not all dogs get along, just like we don’t always like everyone we meet.

On one hand they could be great company for each other and play all day, or on the other hand, they could fight causing injury and stress for not only you, but the dogs as well. You would not want to have to re-home the adopted dog. This is a sad scenario that rescue dogs encounter.

Will a mate be good for your Pooch?

There have been some successful cases where a second dog improved the first dog’s anxieties immensely.

Raffy n Teddy_editedBut remember, this option on its own may not cure your dog’s separation anxiety.   Unless you particularly want a second dog, do your research. It is not recommended getting a second dog just for the purpose of curing separation anxiety.

Leaving your dog home alone is sometimes unavoidable. Using techniques to alleviate their anxieties, and knowing they are happy and relaxed when you are not home, will reduce everyone’s stress levels.

The goal is to resolve your dogs underlying anxieties by teaching him to enjoy, or at least tolerate, being left alone.

If your dog suffers separation anxiety, you will need patience and a good dog separation anxiety training program. Trust between you and your dog is the most important tool you will need before you embark on any training program.

If you have been looking for a way to turn your dog into a well behaved pooch, to stop him chewing everything in sight and to stop crying and barking while you’re not home, then this could be the thQPQMYLWT_editedmost important page that you read all year!

You see, I too used to get really upset when leaving my pooch home alone while I worked. I would look into those big brown eyes and see his sadness. My heart would break as I walked out the door, only to turn and see him run to the window and watch me leave. Crying would be the last thing I heard as I drove out the driveway.

I would worry about him all day long while hoping today would be the day, he would ‘get over it’ and not destroy anything while I was gone. I was frustrated with outdated dog training systems. I was tired of continually replacing things he destroyed while being heartbroken at the obvious distress he was in.

I Used to Stress Over My Dog’s Separation Anxiety But Not Anymore!

Frustrated 800x500Hi, my name is Sharon. My first love, at the tender age of five was my dog, named Lad. He was a “Lassie” dog and was as smart as the famous TV Lassie too! Our house was never a home without a dog, and they’ve taught me a thing or two over the years! I absolutely love coming home to puppy kisses and waggly tails. I know you would agree with me, dogs are the most amazing loving animals, and really are ‘man’s best friend’.

I have been trained in human factors and behavioural sciences, and have used this in my career as an aviation safety specialist for over 20 years. I have also applied this knowledge to animal behaviour from the adored and spoilt family pets, to some of the worse cases of abused and traumatised animals.

I have spent time in the world of animal rescue giving animals a second chance. My role as a volunteer in rescue is that of education and awareness and the importance of love, patience and using positive training techniques in rehabilitation of rescue dogs.

No More Mainstream Training Methods

Fotolia_11866557_Subscription_XXLAfter spending much of my life surrounded by dogs of all sizes, shapes, breeds and temperaments, I was determined to understand why dogs behave the way they do and how our interactions with them affect their behaviour.

I refused to engage in any mainstream training methods that could harm or frighten my dog like shock collars or crate training. I truly believed that behavioural problems could be managed with love in a positive and rewarding way without resorting to old-fashioned domination tactics.

I have spent most of my life looking for the best dog training methods using positive behaviour techniques, while building a trusting relationship that would allow me to finally use methods that would neither hurt my dog or break his spirit.

The Power of Positive Training Techniques

I have therefore dedicated many years to mastering the different behaviours such as, separation anxiety, fears and phobia’s, aggression, barking and chewing by studying the outcomes of positive training techniques. After a lot of research, observation and hands on experience, I have developed the best training techniques that involve rewarding positive behaviour. This has been successfully proven on dogs with behaviour problems, and has helped them overcome their fears and anxieties.

Not only will my dog training techniques transform your dog into a well-behaved pooch, it will improve his wellbeing and the happiness of your entire family.


Here’s What Other’s Have to Say About My Dog Behaviour Training Methods …

After adopting my rescue dog Jezzy, I discovered she had some behavioural problems as a result of her previous experiences. Although Jezzy knew she was Mel 800x500to go to the toilet outside, she began urinating in the house whenever I left the room. For three weeks she would leave me a present to clean every morning. I tried everything I could think of to curb her behaviour but to no avail. I wanted to build trust with her while ensuring she felt loved and secure while correcting her behaviour. Out of desperation, I searched the web for some tips for managing inappropriate behaviour in dogs and found Sharon’s website. Sharon’s positive reward behaviour training techniques have helped overcome some massive hurdles and now Jezzy is settled and has learnt to feel safe with our family and no longer urinates in the house. I was amazed by the results!  Thanks Sharon – Jezzy and I wouldn’t be as happy as we are today, if it wasn’t for your excellent advice. Melinda Martin, Melbourne

Sharon’s positive reward behaviour training has transformed my very timid and frightened Silky IMG_0080Terrier Lucy into a confident and happy dog.   I adopted Lucy from a breeder when she was 9 months old and during this time had been picked on by the other dogs and was frightened of her own shadow. After using Sharon’s training techniques I started to see an immediate improvement in her behaviour. I now have a well behaved, confident dog that I take travelling with me all over the country. Diane Bainbridge, Gold Coast


I met Sharon when she adopted an ex breeding girl from Noah’s Bark Animal Rescue. Sharon has done an incredible job transforming a very fearful and untrusting dog into a confident, socialised and well behaved member of her NB Logofamily. Sharon is passionate about animal rescue and her training techniques demonstrate her commitment to animal rescue and rehabilitation.  Matt Aitken, Noahs Bark Animal Rescue, Melbourne 

How to Have a Happy, Obedient, Well-Behaved Pooch in Four Weeks or Less

Puppy Raffy

I got my dog Raffy as an adorable 10 week old puppy. I was lucky enough to have four months home with him so he had me all to himself, all day, everyday. I spent a lot of time training him and he came everywhere with me.

When he was six months old, it was time for me to go back to work! To my surprise, he did not cope! He didn’t understand why I wasn’t at home with him anymore. I had prepared for the moment, and had started ‘preparing’ him for me being back at work! Clearly, he wasn’t prepared enough!

He got into mischief, chewed everything in sight and wreaked havoc while I was at work. He got into toilet paper, shredding it all over the house. He ripped the stuffing out of cushions, ate the spines of my books in the bookcase, dug up the garden, chewed my shoes, and he even climbed the Christmas tree and ate the glittery decorations!!

My Dog Was Destroying Everything in My House!

The problem was he was destroying everything he could get his little paws on while I was not home. I spent my days worrying about what he was up to, and was always anxious to get home to canstockphoto8933649him. He would look at me with those big brown eyes and that little cute face as if to say “What mum? It wasn’t me!” I could never go mad at him but I just didn’t know what to do!! He was a trained and well behaved dog normally, so I was scratching my head. Why the change in behaviour while I was not home? It was breaking my heart because he was clearly distressed!

I read literally hundreds of articles and researched relentlessly. Then I had my ‘ah ha’ moment. I realised my well adjusted, well trained dog might actually have ‘separation anxiety’.

I then turned my focus on how I was going to cure my pooches separation anxiety. I tried lots of conventional methods, some were harsh which I just couldn’t do, as I didn’t want to hurt my dog or make him fearful of me.

I tried ignoring it.  I tried treats. I tried locking him out of the house. I literally tried dozens of different techniques, but they just didn’t work without putting more stress on both of us.

Finally a Solution!

It was at this point I realised I had to do something for both our sanity! I pawed over countless case studies, hounded animal behaviourists and picked the brains of those trainers that used positive training techniques.

I was passionate about positive reward training techniques, and knew I had to come up with my own program.


Over the course of a few months, I tried a different tactic everyday and documented the results. Some were good, some not so good! I started to see a pattern of the types of techniques that were effective and, more importantly, I could also see a happier more relaxed pooch!

The results were amazing. I had mastered a system that works…Imagine my excitement coming home everyday to a happy waggly tail – nothing chewed and my house not trashed!
