Separation anxiety pointers needed

/ by

sourced from:

Here`s another great article:


We adopted a puppy which had been returned twice due to her separation anxiety and for allegedly playing rough with a cat. We got her when she was 5 months and now she is 6 months. When we adopted her we were told she had severe separation anxiety but she didn't show it for the first week.

After that she became a little monster…As soon as we left the living room she would start pawing at the door and barking. After 1 month we have made some progress and she doesn't follow us to the door (most of the time) and we can leave her 1minute and a bit by herself without her getting anxious. We could probably do 2 minutes but I really don't want to stress her out.

I just don't know how often we should be doing separation anxiety training and don't know if we are moving too slowly? Are we progressing too slowly?

We do it like for 5-10 minutes at a time a couple times a day. Should we practice like 4 times a day? Or for longer? Is it enough to leave her alone in one room? Or should we be actually leaving the house? I don't know how she would react to hearing the actual front door closing.

Thank you in advance for any pointers/advice 🙂
