Separation Anxiety

1027 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Good Shepherd
I recently adopted a jug about 2 weeks ago. He has serious separation anxiety. It is a task to leave our house! He barks and jumps at the door to stop us. Today he nipped my fiancee's foot when we left. I know he has been through a lot. He was found by the animal control in May. I've heard it takes adopted dogs 6 weeks to adjust, but I want to work on this ASAP! What can we do to decrease his separation anxiety?

Thank you! Great suggestions! I will definitely use these. We are training him to sit before we fully enter the door. He did it twice! We don't crate him or keep him in the kitchen. He doesn't need it. He is completely house trained and doesn't destroy our stuff. He really is a great dog. He is totally my shadow! He follows me everywhere. I can't even switch the laundry without him following me to the basement! We'll establish "his space".
