Doggie Boot Camp and Dog Separation Anxiety

Unfortunately, it has been our professional dog training experience that a doggie boot camp program to resolve separation anxiety in puppies or dogs is not the route to go. Many pet owners believe that separation anxiety in dogs is the same as a canine being disobedient or not following commands; they believe that a doggie boot camp program can solve this type of dog training challenge.

There are different degrees of anxiety, here is one of our puppy separation anxiety cases.

The truth is, dog separation anxiety in most cases begin with a canine’s genetics and is usually augmented by environmental factors. Many puppies have what Dedicated Dog Training refers to as “dormant” separation anxiety which is activated by how your puppy or dog is residing with you.



Dog Separation Anxiety Workshop

Our Nassau County dog training school believes the most optimal training course of action to help make things better with your dog’s separation anxiety is NOT a doggie boot camp program, but an in-home training workshop.

In summary, canine separation anxiety is when your dog is addicted to YOU. Most dogs, with separation anxiety are fearful, non-confident and overly dependent on you. And, if the dog has the temperament, he or she can even become very aggressive to other dogs or people when they are around you; after all, they need to protect the resource (you) that they are addicted to and overly depend on.


Train the Dog, Teach the Dog Owners

Many dog problems pet owners face are a direct result of the way they are managing and residing with them. And a doggie boot camp program will not change how the dog owner responds to their dog or how they manage their dog – we need to teach you how to properly manage & respond to your canine.

If you’re experiencing dog separation anxiety with your furry family member, you may want to consider a more inexpensive and effective approach to managing and making things better for you, your family and your dog – Feel free to get in touch with Dedicated Dog Training of Nassau County for your canines’ separation anxiety.

Hi Ruby,

Thanks so much for taking the time to read our post on dog boot camps and separation anxiety. Please feel free to send us an email at [email protected] or give us a call at (516) 512-9111 so we can discuss how we can help you.

A quick note: the separation anxiety is not with the crate, but with you. So, your dog apparently does not mind the crate as long as she is near you (not minding the crate already places you in a better position than many!). We can help with these issues. Look forward to hearing form you.
