Separation Anxiety

We believe that much can be done with young pups to prevent the development of separation anxiety. In particular, our efforts to crate train the puppies at 7 weeks of age helps them to realize that they are individuals and that they can be alone for awhile without having major anxiety. We also send the pups out on field trips where they go away for a couple of hours with a stranger and then return home to mama and the littermates. This helps give them a stable foundation and helps to avoid the onset of separation anxiety.
