Autistic Spaniel Behavior.

Puppies that are in a new family are very often autistic. Spaniels prone to autistic behavior require special treatment from the owner and household. For example, an autistic spaniel cannot be left alone for a long time, as the pet will become anxious. The most common signs of autism are: the dog does not tolerate even the shortest separation from the owner, everywhere follows his owner, does not show a desire to communicate with dogs on a walk, etc.

Such a problem can occur in dogs that were taken in a shelter. They could be autistic as a result of the mistreatment of their past owners or other people. In addition, this disease can be inherited.

If the spaniel behaves as follows, then we can conclude that he is autistic:

1. Barks, howls and gets nervous in the absence of owners in the house. The dog begins to think that the owners left her alone and did not return. Some dogs start barking as soon as the owner has left and continue to panic until he returns. Constant barking not only interferes with others, but also harms the health of the dog.
It is worth noting that barking is not always a sign of autistic behavior. A short bark may mean that the spaniel has developed watchdog qualities.

2. Digs, scratches walls, doors or furniture. Such a sign of autism not only causes damage to property, but also injures the claws of the spaniel.

3. Gnaws on various objects when left alone. In this situation, the dog must be taken to a separate room, always warm and safe.

4. Becomes very nervous when the owner returns home. Most often, autistic dogs rush around the house, jumping on the owner.

5. Begin to empty the intestines or urinate as a result of a nervous breakdown.
It is impossible to punish a dog for autistic behavior, because this will lead to even greater mental disorders. The basic rule of adjustment: you need to pay more attention to the pet.

Spaniel autistic behavior

Autistic spaniel behavior can only be adjusted in the following ways:
1. Provide the dog with a variety of toys that will not let her miss your absence. Chewing bones are great, which will take the spaniel’s attention for a long time.
2. If the dog is overly active, both physical and mental stress will be beneficial, which will tire the dogs. After such exertion, dogs tend to sleep, even in the absence of the owner.
3. Before you leave the house, take a longer walk and play with the dog. Try to leave home unnoticed by your pet.
4. Change your behavior so that it is unexpected for the spaniel.
5. During training, try to educate the spaniel in such a way that he is more confident and independent. Spend more time learning.
6. Socialize the dog, walking with her in the company of other dogs, changing places of walks, increasing their duration.
7. Do not reciprocate the dog when it rushes at you after your arrival. Do not encourage her insanity, and over time the dog will understand that it is doing wrong.
