A small puppy is not only a fluffy ball of joy and happiness, but also a lot of big and small problems that all new owners will have to face. One such problem is teaching a puppy to stay alone at home.
Dogs are gregarious animals, they can hardly endure loneliness. And the little puppy does not understand at all - how can you be alone, because from birth he is accustomed to being in the company of his mother, brothers and sisters.
The baby should be taught to be alone gradually. Start by leaving it alone for 15 minutes. If, having approached the door, you did not hear screeching and crying, then enter the apartment, praise the baby, you can even treat him to something tasty.
Then you can leave the puppy for a longer period. Each time you return, praise the baby, let him understand that you will definitely come, and your meeting will give him a lot of pleasure.
If, at the slightest attempt to go beyond the threshold, your puppy bursts into crying, then you can try to teach him to be alone as follows: feed the baby before leaving. As a rule, small puppies sleep after eating, so a hearty meal will make separation easier.
Offer your pet your favorite toys before leaving. Your puppy will get over the parting much easier if he is busy playing.
Gradually increase the amount of time you leave your baby alone. Praise your pet violently for correct behavior.
If no methods help and the dog is wailing alone for days, then it is worth considering the option of acquiring a second pet - it is possible that with the appearance of a second dog or cat in the house, your puppy will forever cease to be afraid of loneliness and will enthusiastically play games with a new friend!
