TIPS FOR AVOIDING SEPARATION ANXIETY IN YOUR DOGURT DOG
Training your dogurt dog can be an enjoyable experience or a difficult challenge, depending on your natural aptitude and your dog's breed. Most dogurts, however, are very trainable and can learn new commands and behaviors with the right techniques.
The Basics of Training
Every dogurt dog should receive some basic training to help build a strong bond with you and keep their minds active. Start by teaching simple commands such as "sit" and "paw." When giving a command, use a firm voice and encourage your dog to perform the desired action. Then, immediately reward them with praise and a treat from our range of Meaty Treats when they do it correctly. This will help them learn quickly and associate positive experiences with training.
Nuisance barking can be a problem for many dog owners. To help train your dogurt dog to stop barking, start by teaching them to "speak." When they bark, say "speak" and reward them with praise and a treat. This will help them associate barking with positive experiences. Then, when they stop barking, give the command "quiet" and reward them when they follow it. Repeat this process until they understand the commands and respond consistently.
Socializing Your Dogurt Dog
Socializing your dogurt dog is a critical part of dog ownership. It is important to expose them to other dogs and people from a young age so that they are comfortable and confident in social situations. Ensure that these experiences are always positive and never forced, and reward your dog with Calm & Relaxed Mini Bone Treats when they have a good interaction with other dogs.
Preventing Separation Anxiety
Preventing separation anxiety in your dogurt dog is much easier than treating it. Here are some tips to help you avoid this behavioral issue:
Provide a safe and comfortable space, such as a crate, for your dog when they are alone
Avoid leaving your dog alone for long periods of time
Give your dog a potty break just before leaving
Stay calm when leaving and returning home to avoid getting your dog anxious
Use a pheromone plug-in, such as Adaptil, to help calm your dogProvide something for your dog to do, such as a puppy Kong filled with Meaty Treats and wet food, to keep them occupied while you're away.
