Dog Home Alone

Don't leave me all alone: Dogs have a very big need for social contact and they prefer to be with their family as much as they can. There are even some dogs that are not able to take being left home alone and that can actually suffer from real panic when their owners leave the dog home alone. If you have ever heard about or had a dog that destroys and tears up the house, this may have been the problem. Usually this type of behavior occurs when humans are unable to understand the reactions of their dogs. Because of this fact, dogs need to learn to be left alone for periods of time starting at a very young age and even more so if our intention is to get them to adapt well to the type of situation we live in. Unfortunately, some breeders and dogowners do not always appreciate these circumstances, and they try to ensure there is always someone around them or that they are always in company of other dogs or puppies so that they do not feel alone. Teaching a dog or a puppy to be left alone during brief times which will gradually extend to longer periods of time, is something that will help a puppy accept and tolerate the fact that he will have to be left alone at times and this will help the dog owner to not have any conflicts or cause the dog to become depressed.

Please don't leave me: There are dogs that get stressed and feel depressed when being left alone. When a dog has this problem, being left all to his lonesome – even when the dog is in the safety of his own home – is not something the dog enjoys at all as it just makes him feel vulnerable. There are dogs that are in this situation that bite at the door frame or even dig at the floor trying to get out. Some dogs bite at different things in the house desperately and howl and some even get panic attacks – the problem with this is that it causes some dogs to feel the need to evacuate and when this occurs, the owner is obviously left with a nasty mess to clean up in his or herhouse.There are dogs that for some reason are under the impression that the outside world is a safer place and are not worried about the possible occurrence of getting attacked by another dog or animal, however, for others the outside of the house is a place where many dangers roam.
