    Hi fellow dog lovers, So I thought I'd share my little story here, especially after reading the article “prevent separation anxiety in dogs” from Insider. If it just helps 1 dog family out there, I'd be happy :) So I have a Pitbull that I adopted from a rescue shelter 2 years ago, and...

    We have a 6 year old pittie mix that we got as a rescue dog. He is so loveable but we just moved from Pa to NY where he now has to be on a leash to go pottie. He has adapted but here is my fear he has separation anxiety and he will occassionally show his teeth when annoyed what can I do to stop...

    Hello! I adopted a pit 3 months ago (M, neutered, 2yo, 75lbs). He's just perfect, minus separation anxiety. It's been a challenge, but with training and patience things are moving along. He's now able to stay home for a full day alone (AM + PM walk, plus noon dogwalker). He doesn't love it but...

    Hey there Pitbull forums, This is Molly. She was my brother's dog, but Jered left to join the military years back, got out and went straight to school in southern CA where he couldn't bring her. So she stayed with our mom. At the same time he left (some 8 years ago) I had moved up to WA...

    Ok I'm a complete novice so be kind. Everyone has to learn somewhere ? I have to Pitbulls. Both fixed. Around two plus years old. They have open access to the back yard and have for the most part done their business outside. My family all decided to go on vacation accept for me. This left the...

    I know you guys were waiting for this..hahaha Pup is 9 weeks Crate (Divider) with big play pen attached, two toys (kong, Rope), and wee wee pad (too cold to potty train outside). So this guy doesn't even want to eat alone, and has escalated to temper tamtrums destroying the wee wee pad and...

    well I've had my dog for a while now and he clings to me a lot maybe because he knows I rescued him. I've done a ton of reading and browsing about separation anxiety and I've tried everything I've read. the separation anxiety my dog has is really bad when I leave him in the morning to go to...

    Our 4 y.o. lab/pit rescue dog has been the insecure type since we got her. Seems to be getting worse, she was always S.A. type when we would leave, even tried the "short trip" training, but maybe not enough. Yesterday she had broken down a plywood 4' high barrier we use to keep her in the...

    The other day my husband and I went out with some friends, which meant that Phantom had to be crated for the first time. He didn't do too badly that we could tell. He pulled a few of my husband's shirts in that were in reach, which we've been told could be boredom. But since that, he seems to...

    So I have a 3 month (I believe, he is a rescue pup) pitbull mix. I have been attempting to train him to be on our enclosed deck for when no one is home. It has a cover that shades half the deck all the time. I've been trying to put him out there for like 15 minutes at a time throughout the day...

    Bobby my significant other has a dog he's had for quite some time. I believe he's around 10yrs old. He's never really displayed any behavior problems before. Recently he started jumping out our tiny bedroom window when we leave. He is a large dog I'm not sure how he fit. He's a Rot/Shepard/Chow...

    OK...so my pup APBT (almost 10 weeks) has some of the worst SA I've seen in a dog (only seen a few dogs with it). I can't even keep him in a room with the door shut without him going wild. When I put him in his crate crying/barking ensues along with trying to viciously destroy w/e toy or chew...

    I'm sitting here by myself while the Matrix folk and some of the dogs are out at a show this weekend. Was driving around today looking at apartments and such, really more as a diversion than anything else, and it led to this giant think-fest about what I really want to do with my life now that...

    Our 7-8 mo old rescue Petey has what we assume is separation anxiety. When we leave for work we put him in his kennel with his kong and when we come home for lunch 3-4 hrs later he has completely filled the bottom of the crate with saliva. The front of the wire door, the floor directly outside...

    If your dog whines due to separation, you will begin with teaching your dog to accept short periods of time that he or she will be left alone. Eventually you will work your way up to long periods of time. Start by getting your dog used to the area where he or she will be while you are gone...

    I don't know if it separation anxiety or not but she won't go to sleep unless she's right up against either me or my boyfriend. It's ok if we're on the couch and she takes a nap but it's a pain at night. There's not enough room for her in the bed since she's such a bed hog so we put her in her...

    Ok my pitbull is 1y/o, and we've had her since she was about 6 months. When we leave the house Maggie goes crazy and jumps up in the window and scratches the window, or when she's in her crate and we're going to sleep she whines. If she is in a bedroom and we're in another room and the door is...
