Other Strategies

The second strategy, though somewhat more harsh, is also as effective. This strategy consists of submitting the dog to a 15 minute period of really intense games. The games must continue until the dog is tired. Due to its tiredness, we will have less resistance coming from the dog when trying to take him out. Once done this the person in the family whom the dog thinks is the leader of the pack must carry him, He will hold his paws between his hands and will make him walk as to give him more security, This is done because the dog feels insecure when not in contact with someone he trusts. Without any more delays, you will take him outside, preferable using the stairways. The elevator will be used only if it is already there to avoid unnecessary delays.

If possible walks should be at a fixed hour and should be during daylight. If not done like this, the lack of visibility will make him more insecure and difficult to handle. Besides, this could become a negative experience. The person of the family with whom the dog feels safer, as mentioned before, must lead the dog. As an additional bonus the extensible leash will allow him a greater area to move within. On the other hand, it is not convenient to be far from the dog's influence area which means, to be near the surroundings of its home, where it will feel safer. You will avoid the area in which the unchaining situation of the collar or leash started. That is if you really know where it happened.

A fast evolution in the process may make the dog immerse itself in a clear regressive cycle depending on how much progress has the dog previously evidenced. The companion walkers of the dog will change their strategies, offering the less confident members of the family, a more extent area for going about the insecure areas. They will choose hours in which there are more activities taking place, starting with the afternoon before the sunset and later at night

With time and patience as main allies, you will be able to correct the problem presented by the dog that seemed, at first, there was no solution for. The period of time the sensibility suppression treatment will last depends on several factors, but especially in persevering when applying it. This will also depend on how intense were the experiences suffered by the exemplar, and in the origin of its behavioral change.
