Pitbull Separation Anxiety

Does your best friend suffer from pitbull separation anxiety?

If you answered yes, the good news is that you are not alone!! This wonderful breed is very emotional and therefore suffers when the owner is away.

However there are some things that you can do to lessen the psychological burden of your best friend.

First of all you should not make a huge deal when you leave the house, in other words don´t be too dramatic about leaving. Say "Bye" to your pitbull and just leave.

If the action always looks like real word drama then your pit will perceive it as so and will suffer more.

Also you should remember that dogs pick up on energy like crazy in other words try not to think too much about leaving him alone and getting into a "worried state of mind". If you can keep your state as neutral as possible it will be much better for your pit.

Dogs are very energy sensitive and will naturally "read" your state of mind.

Same thing when you come back home, say "hi" to your friend and then go on with whatever you have to do witout exaggerating.

With time your pitbull will understand that it is normal for him to be left alone once in a while. Of course if you don´t dedicate a lot of your time to your pit then you should not have gotten him in the first place.

Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer talks about this in his first book (not sure if it´s his first but anyways).

His advice, which I agree, is to go for a long walk first thing in the morning and then feed your dog. He will be tired and fed which takes his mind off the fact that he´s alone.

So go for a walk with your pit right NOW
