Therefore, communicating with your dog is not only necessary, it is effective. Before going out, you should affectionately tell your owner where to go, wait at home, and tell him that there will be delicious prizes for taking him out when he returns. If you can give him some tasty snacks or put the dog’s favorite things on a toy bone or dog chew, the dog will get a lot of comfort from the communication.

Using progressive separation

Give him some treats, then return after the owner has left for a few minutes. Although this is a brief separation, the dog will still jump for joy as if he has been separated for a long time. After that, the separation is gradually lengthened, leaving the house multiple times a day until the dog is too lazy to ignore the owner’s entrance and exit and is unaffected by the separation.
