Separation Anxiety in dogs

Kira, a German Shepherd Mix, needed help with separation anxiety.
This German Shepherd mix is finding out through “marker training” that it is more valuable for her to sit on her bed than jumping and scratching at the gate. The clicker communicates to her which behavior exactly it was that triggered the reward to come. In addition, the direction of the reward being obtained is away from the gate. Our Trainers at Zauberberg were able to help changing her thinking / feelings during separation. She learned an alternate / replacement behavior “sit”.
in most cases, the right training approach is much more effective and preferred in comparison to be medical treatment. In fact medication is not a treatment for these cases, it is a chemical approach to just manage the situation. Medication will not change the behavior itself.
