Bored Dog - What should I do if my dog is bored.

Go to Index

Dogs are sociable animals, gregarious and their senses, mind and body need stimulus.
ADVICE 469
If when you come back you find a panorama of disaster at home, don't think your dog did it as a revenge for leaving it alone.
Dogs are incapable to plan crimes against the property with premeditation. Howling, digging, destroying, jumping and walking rhythmically to the front and back are signs of anxiety.
You can avoid the problems cause by the dog's boredom by letting the dog cover its mental and physical necessities.
ADVICE 470 how to keep a dog from becoming bored

HOWLING TO CALL ATTENTION
ADVICE 471
The baby wolves howl to call their mother's attention. Thus, the bored and little stimulated dog barks or howls to call its master's attention when they leave the animal alone.
DIGGING
While some dogs dig to bury bones and others to make themselves a fresh bed, many of them do it just for frustration.
RHYTHMICAL JUMPS
In a garden, a bored dog can have fun jumping to look over a fence. The anxiety of the separation makes some dogs to walk frontward and backwards, mark their territory with urine, howl and dig.
ANXIOUS DESTRUCTION
Dogs can be spectacularly destructive, tearing the paper from the walk, chewing the tapestry of the car and destroying carpets, clothing and table cloths of the house. Curiously, this behavior is more common in insecure dogs and dogs that don't exercise enough, especially dogs that were picked up from the streets, which excessively depend emotionally from their masters.
HOW TO AVOID PROBLEMS
USING THE SENSES
ADVICE 472
Before leaving the dog alone, make it exercise a lot, both physically and mentally.
It is uncommon for an exhausted dog to bark, dig and destroy like others with an excess of energy.

ENCOUNTERS WITH OTHER DOGS.
You should not isolate your dog, make it get together with other dogs in your presence for you to prove it is relating well.
GAMES
When you leave the dog alone, give it one of the toys it is obsessed about. It you rub the toy with your hands to cover it with your smell; the dog will feel more secure.
GOING TO WORK
The dog shouldn't be left alone all day at home because it loves activity.
ADVICE 473
If you can, take the dog to work with you; it will reduce its boredom and it will minimize a possible destructive behavior.
SOME HELP
ADVICE 474
If you have to leave your dog alone for long periods of time, avoid boredom problems by using a professional dog walker. If not, ask a friend to take the dog out for the animal to exercise often.
PLANNING YOUR ABSENCE
ADVICE 475
Check on the dog's behavior by leaving it alone in a room with a toy. Minutes later, go back to the room and congratulate it for not showing boredom signs such as barking, walking or scratching the door.
ADVICE 476
Repeat this exercise in different rooms, varying the time of your absences each day until you can leave the animal alone without giving signs of anxiety.
QUIET GOODBYE
ADVICE 477
Try to leave in silence. Open the curtains or turning the radio or the television on can distract it from the door noises.
It is important to remember that the dogs that behave better can have separation problems in new homes.
