Seperation Anxiety

Can any one help my friend, she wrote...............

''hi just wondering if anyone can give me any advice.I am really at the end of my tether with kai,he is destroying the house.Kia is never left on his own for more than a couple of hours at a time,probably 3 days a week.Not every time i leave him but id say most of the time he destroys something,today it was 2 of the seats on my new leather settee,i just dont no what to do with him.Ive tried leaving him and driving round the block and coming back,then building the time up etc...kai has 2hrs a day exercise a day,and a toy box,hide treats when i leave him,i no its not boredom,its a seperation thing.I have a kennel and run outside,which i put him in sometimes but he gets very stressed in there,but it looks like thats where he will be going in future when i go out.Kai is not desructive at all when someone is at home with him,can anyone help,i just feel that im banging my head against a brick wall at the minute'' Kai is a 15 month old gsd, and a hooligan, he live with 2 elderly mongrels, he has a grade 5 heart murmur so Debbie does not want to do anything to stress him too much.
I feel so sorry for her, Kai is wearing her down

dogs are for life, not just for christmas. rats are like chips, you just can't have one

Re: Seperation Anxiety

Please tell her to buy Patricia McConnell's little booklet, "I'll Be Coming Home Soon" and follow it VERY CAREFULLY for as long as it takes to get him through this. I did it with Rafi. It took 7 weeks but he has absolutely no problems now. I leave him loose and he is perfect.

Re: Seperation Anxiety

How about some of that DAP stuff, in addition (dog appeasing pheromones).

Re: Seperation Anxiety

The DAP stuff works for some dogs and not for others. It seemed to work for Kai and not at all for Rafi.

Re: Seperation Anxiety

I have used Dap for my dogs fear of fireworks and it worked a treat.
I have also found the Pat McConnel book on E-bay and will reccomend it to her, thank you!
