If not treated properly, dog separation anxiety can become a serious problem for pet owners. Your dog may start to bark incessantly if it feels you are leaving the house. In a worst case scenario, your dog may start to kick and back simultaneously. You may find it destroying your home and ripping up everything you own.
Changing your routine is the first step in changing your obnoxious behavior. Change the time you wake up. If your dog senses that the alarm clock sounds like it is about leaving the house, then they will start to feel anxious.
You might try waking up before your alarm sounds. If you are really stressed, don't rush to the bathroom. Instead, walk around the house. Variegate your routine so your dog doesn't know what you are doing next. This will confuse your dog and reduce anxiety.
You should also reduce, if not completely eliminate, the amount of attention your dog receives when you leave home and return. Do not try to pet or pamper them. Give your dog a break for a few minutes, and then give your attention to their whining.
It takes practice and time to change a dog's behavior that has become accustomed to a certain attitude. Although it may seem like you are treating your dog cruelly, it is not. You may be accused of being cruel to your dog. Your goal is to teach your pet to obey you. You are actually helping your pet friend relax. Your pet may become anxious and start to behave badly if it is in distress.
