Separation Anxiety In Your Dog

You have managed to get a wonderful Tibetan Spaniel after a long time waiting. The dog is everything you dreamed of and it seems to be the perfect dog, well behaved and now house-trained. Then, you go off to work and leave the dog alone and all of a sudden the problems start. The dog forgets its house-training or refuses to use newspaper while you are out. The furniture is chewed to pieces and your neighbors are complaining that it barks all the time when you are gone. You are starting to get visits from the animal control office. What went wrong? Simply put, the Tibetan Spaniel cannot be left alone for long periods of time without suffering separation anxiety. While it can appear to be the model dog as long as you are around, the minute you leave the clock starts ticking. [...]

What To Do About Separation Anxiety

Dog breeds vary in their tendency towards separation anxiety. The Sussex Spaniel is a breed that is predisposed to suffer separation anxiety more than other breeds. This may be due to its role as being part of the hunt and a pack of dogs. When it is separated from this pack, it tends to bond with its owner. If the owner doesn't understand the dog's needs, it can lead to the dog displaying negative behavior like destructive chewing and barking. It will even howl when it is distressed. Some dogs with soil the house, if left alone too long. This might be because they missed their outing or because they are angry or upset. Don't discipline the dog for these mistakes as it is acting out of distress that you were gone. Instead, try to develop a routine that is comforting to the dog while allowing you some time away from the home for short periods. The best type of environment for a Sussex Spaniel is one where there is someone home all day long. [...]

The Kerry Blue Terrier and Sparring

Many times when people get a Kerry Blue Terrier for the first time, they are not aware of all the different things that go on while they are in a competition for show. In fact, many times they do not know what is going to happen until it happens. One of the main events that many people are not in favor of is sparring. In fact, many people think that having two Kerry Blue Terriers sparring with one another is down right mean. However, that is one way for the judges to determine which is the best dog overall. Many times when people are asked to spar their dogs, they are not sure of what it even is. Sparring is when the judges put two or possibly three different dogs into the center of the show ring so that they have to "look at each other". It is the judges as well as the handlers that assure that it is safe. In fact, if the dogs are in the show ring a lot they can differentiate between a competitive challenge and something that is for real. Either way, in most cases, it is best for the handlers to keep themselves at a safe distant just in case. [...]

The Italian Greyhound and Favorite Pastimes

The Italian Greyhound is a lovable and very playful dog. They love romping around with the family and the kids. They participate in many events for shows and competitions, doing well in lure coursing, conformation, obedience and agility. They particularly enjoy competing in agility events. When they are not working, they love relaxing in as many ways as they can. The Italian Greyhound loves lounging on the couch or in bed with their master. If bed is where they choose to be, you will most likely find them under the covers cuddling next to you. They will wait patiently for you to pick the covers up so they can crawl underneath them, but if you don't, they will figure out how to sneak under by themselves. If it's not yet bedtime, you'll probably find them lying on the couch wherever their people are. As much as they love lying in bed under the covers, they are not the type of dog to go there on their own if you are on the couch. They love being where you are. [...]
