Double Your Donation!

For the month of April, all donations (up to a total of $500) for the Dog Exercise Area at Mukwonago Park will receive matching funds when given through our registers at either of our Mukwonago and Pewaukee locations! 

This means a total of $1000 toward the dog park if we reach the $500 goal!  Every dollar counts, so double your donation and support this awesome project!  Your dog will love you for it :)

Donations are non-taxable and include a donation receipt for tax purposes.

 

While this LOLdog cartoon may give us a chuckle, many pet owners whose dogs have separation anxiety can relate and it’s no laughing matter. There are many ways to help your dog’s distress and diffuse your frustrations as well.Don’t Leave Me!!!

“A dog with separation anxiety or isolation distress must be treated, lest he destroys your home - or himself.”

The Whole Dog Journal offers some advice on dealing with a dog who gets distressed when you leave.  Separation anxiety behaviors are often misdiagnosed and/or punished unnecessarily.  This article gives you a look inside what your dog may be thinking and what you can do to help him or her if separation anxiety seems to be brewing or is full-blown.

There’s also an excellent list of complementary things you can do in addition to behavioral modification.  Read more of what they advise at Whole Dog Journal’s website and their article, “Canine Separation Anxiety”.

The article ends with this paragraph, which is so important to remember:

Fixing separation anxiety is hard work. It’s all too easy to get frustrated with your dog’s destructive behavior. Remember that he’s not choosing to do it out of spite or malice - he is panicked about his own survival without you, his pack, there to protect him. It’s not fun for him, either; he lives in the moment, and the moments that you are gone are long and terrifying. If you make the commitment to modify his behavior and succeed in helping him be brave about being alone, you’ll not only save your home from destruction, you will enhance the quality of your dog’s life immensely - as well as your own - and perhaps save him from destruction, too.
