Separation anxiety – hyper attachment

Person A: The person that the dog is hyper attached to (your pup gets upset when they leave)

Person B: Another member of the household


Person A: Put down the rug next to person B and say “Settle”. Person B gives a treat to the pup.

Person A walks out of the room. Person B says “Good” and gives your pup treats.

Person A re-enters the room and calmly walks back with no fuss or attention given to your pup.

Slowly increase the time that Person A leaves the room. If at any point your pup whines, barks or gets upset when Person A leaves the room, reduce how long Person A is leaving for for a few more repeats before starting to build up again.
