Separation Anxiety--could you be making it worse?

Here's an excerpt from an excellent article from Animal Wellness Magazine on separation anxiety.  Click here to read the full article.

You may be contributing to your dog's fear without even realizing it.

Wendy adopted a collie mix recently. He soon developed separation anxiety, and she didn’t know why. Then a trainer told her it was because of the way she acted whenever she left the house. “I hated leaving him alone and always made a big fuss of him, telling him over and over that I’d be home soon,” Wendy says. “I was as worried about leaving him as he was to be left, and it was making him anxious.”

As this example shows, separation anxiety isn’t always just about the dog. I have found over the years, when working to solve this issue, that there are several ways people can unintentionally trigger separation anxiety in their dogs. By watching out for these relationship errors, you can avoid or more quickly stop separation anxiety before it becomes a severe problem.

Piggy is a very special soul.  He came from a home that did not socialize him with the outside world.  He is afraid of everything but he is NEVER sassy.  He just needs a special home that has time and patience to acclimate him to the “good life”.   If you have lots of love to give to a creature that is so in need please consider Piggy.

What My Dog Taught Me...

Amber Carlton and her dog, Ranger. Photo courtesy of dogster.com.

Little white hairs have taken over Ranger's head, like mine. Unlike me, he doesn't seem to worry. "Who cares? It is what it is," he seems to say with the doggie equivalent of a shrug. As I've paid more attention to how Ranger has handled getting older, I realize that I've got a remarkable guide to help me navigate this tangled and complicated path.

Tulip and Tonta are a pair of yellow bellied sliders that can be adopted together if you can provide them with a very large tank to live in with a large warm basking area to come out of the water. They will need at least an 80 gallon, but larger would be preferred, so they have lots of room to swim about without bumping into each other. Space should be in width not height. Tulip is a big girl, about 9 inches across. Tonto is much smaller but he is a very frisky fellow who pesters Tulip a lot and she can get very annoyed at him so a small tank does not work for them. To learn about Yellow Bellied Sliders go to Austin's Turtle Page.  Then come in and visit them!

Jake and Jackie came in from the same house along with their brother, Piggy. Their owner could no longer keep them and so now they find themselves looking for a new home.

They both agreed they would prefer a family all to themselves, so HAWS is not looking for a single home to take them both. 

They are very calm, and even a little shy, so a nice low-key house would suit them both.  They would definitely benefit from some obedience classes to help them bond to their new owner and learn to trust again. 

If you have a quiet home and would like a companion to walk with, stop by HAWS to meet Jake or Jackie today!

When Lily became a home-alone dog, she didn't like it much!  Her mom went back to work, and Lily decided she missed being around people a little too much. So, now Lily is looking for a home with a few criteria: she'd like some kids (activity, yay!), and she'd probably be okay with a cat sibling.  Lily will also need to learn, sloooooooowly, that being home alone can be a good thing.  But no worries! Our trainers can help you and Lily develop a plan.

Mercola's Probiotics and Enzymes! 

DrMercProbiotics.jpg

New to our stores is Dr. Mercola's Healthy Pets Probiotics and also Digestive Enzymes!  Why do you need to supplement if you are feeding a good food?  

Dr. Karen Becker says:

DrMercEnzymes.jpg

Whether you feed your pet a healthy homemade or frozen species-specific diet, a canned or a dried kibble diet, she will likely benefit greatly from supplemental enzymes.

Supplementing with enzymes helps ensures she can completely digest her food without dipping into that fragile bank of metabolic enzymes.

When you feed your pet enzymes with her meals, they aid in digestion. When you feed the exact same enzymes at other times, they work systemically for metabolic purposes.

Yappity-Yap! (Don't talk back!)

This article by Dr. Sophia Yin, veterinarian and animal behaviorist, sheds much light on why (and how!?) dogs excessively bark.  

This excerpt is just the tip of the iceberg of helping you truly understand your misunderstood pet.  Click here to read the full article at Dr. Yin's website, The Art & Science of Animal Behavior.

So how do you break a horrific barking habit before your pooch is up to epic nighttime arias? The simplest solution is to keep dogs inside if they bark only when they're out, and to increase their exercise if they're bored. Instead, many people reach for a behavioral band-aid such as citronella or an electronic anti-bark collar. Both can work wonders initially, but often the great response is short-lived. Furthermore they will do nothing for a serious underlying problem such as separation anxiety. Additionally, many savvy barkers learn to outsmart the devices. 


Meet Veterinarian and Animal Behaviorist Dr. Sophia Yin Dr. Sophia Yin knows what it’s like to have a problem pet and nowhere to turn for professional help. And she has witnessed countless fractured relationships between misunderstood pets and their frustrated humans companions. As a result, her mission in life is to improve our understanding of animals and their behavior so that we can care for, appreciate and enjoy our time with them better.

Kitty Home Alone?  Not a Good Idea

You never know what they might get into while you're away...

You never know what they might get into while you're away...

Dr. Becker writes, "Over half of U.S. cat owners feel it’s fine to leave their feline companions alone at home while they’re away. And while it’s true most kitties don’t require the same level of attention dogs do, leaving a cat home for days with no one to check on her can backfire."

Why Socialization is so Important

Dog 015.jpg

"A well-socialized puppy is one that has been handled from birth and accepts touching of all body parts; has been exposed to a wide range of people, other animals, places and situations; has been encouraged to explore and investigate his environment; and has been allowed to experience a variety of toys and games, surfaces and other stimuli."

If you have, or are considering, a new puppy, please read this article from Dr. Becker on how to give him or her the best chance at becoming a well-behaved adult!

Figgins is a 1-year-old who came to HAWS as a stray. He really  wasn't into street life - the good life is more his thing - and he is ready to live that life with YOU!  Our volunteers describe Figgins as an "all-around GREAT cat!"  He loves people, would do well with another feline friend, and may even put up with the resident dog...as long as the dog respects the formalwear.  (No drooling please.)
