Tips to Help a Chow Chow Get Over Separation Anxiety

For this LA dog training session, we share tips to help 1 year-old Chow Chow Suyeong get over her separation anxiety when left alone.

Things started out a bit jumbled as Suyeong’s guardians had recently moved and the movers decided to deliver her furniture the same day and time of this session. I could see Suyeong was a bit stressed so I took her out for a short walk to help her clear her head and relax.

Shortly after returning, the movers completed their delivery and we got to work. I shared a number of tips to help reinforce the dog’s confidence in her humans. Petting with a purpose and passive training will help the dog understand the things the humans do and don’t want from her.

After going over a few exercises with her guardian to develop her focus and reduce any potential stress, I was ready to address the dog’s separation anxiety problem. I handed the guardian my camera so I could share tips to stopping separation anxiety in dogs.

Helping a dog get over separation anxiety involves desensitization, development of confidence and control and practice at being alone in an easier capacity. If the guardians practice this exercise to help a dog get over separation anxiety daily until Sue can stay in a room on her own while calm and relaxed, they should be able to fix this separation anxiety problem for good.

To help the guardian remember all the things we covered in this at home LA dog training session, we shot a roadmap to success video that you can watch below.
