The behaviorist told us to ignore our foster dog, not to pet her at all or play with her to help her with her separation anxiety … He said that leaving the apartment for small intervals and then increasing the time we leave her alone does not. does’ It doesn’t work at all. I do not agree!

Hello, A bit of history: we have a rescue dog from an organization. She was neglected and used exclusively as a breeding dog. I have always been very fond of dogs, but I have never felt a connection to any of them. With this dog it is different. She is an amazing bitch … incredibly smart, very obedient and very loving and sweet. She looks at me for clues and waits for me to guide her. She was in 2 foster families before and I feel like she was ignored and not trained at all. She didn’t know of any commands other than sitting. I have been observing many American trainers and reading expert books on the subject and following their advice on dog training. I’ve been working hard with her this week. Teach him how to do tricks, follow orders, play with his toys, and teach him to drop and let go. It seems a lot more focused now than it did last week. Seriously, it has improved so much in such a short time that I am very impressed. She used to jump on people and ignore her at first, but I found that redirecting her with snacks works best and making her sit down to bring her pets is more efficient. She is less nervous, but still needs to work. She also stopped barking at the door! I am also teaching him to walk on a leash, because he used to pull. He doesn’t do it that much anymore, except when he sees a dog and I see him get reactive (aggression frustration). We are still working on that. I’m also training her so she doesn’t bother us when we eat. Work in progress, but much better than before. Because of her separation anxiety we gave her a kong and toys. We still have a friend or pet sitter when we leave, but she no longer cries or barks when we leave or when her pet sitters leave. So I feel like we are making progress. I think it will take a long time, but it is much better, because before I was very anxious. We do not say goodbye to her and we do not greet her when we enter the apartment, but we do caress her during the day, we play with her and we give her affection. Things you never had before. She seems happier and more confident in general. I don’t know if it’s because we don’t live in states that we see animals as part of the family and we live in a country where people are colder in general, but it made me very sad that she could get adopted by someone who agrees with the behaviorist and just ignore a dog that WAS IGNORED ALL LIFE. It goes without saying that we are planning to adopt her, but now I am scared because the behaviorist thinks that we are doing everything wrong and maybe she is going to talk bad about us and say that we are too attached and that she needs to be rehoused. people who will actually ignore it. I sent them a couple of pictures of her doing it right and doing tricks, but it was a bad idea. We also live in a small apartment so our chances are also diminished regardless of whether I take her for long walks and I started jogging with her yesterday to make sure she gets rid of that pent up energy. dog in person! He even talked about medicating her! She’s not even a vet! Anyway my girlfriend and I are so scared that she will be relocated, we even have a chance to adopt her and we don’t know what to do 🙁 EDIT: Thanks guys for all the amazing advice and support. They are really amazing! Ignore the behavioral advice , since I have no way to verify her credentials and what we are doing is working perfectly. Only today the dog was alone 30 minutes! She did not bark when we left or when we returned and she didn´t touch a single object in the apartment. I will definitely follow the advice given here, in training books and videos. I will also call the people in the organization and see if we can move forward with the adoption. If we are deemed “unfit” I will be sad but with the hope i can find an even more loving home
