    “On the other hand the anxious dog will have a hectic bark and when owner is walking away, be it from post or crate, they actually perceive that the owner is focusing on them and beseeching them to be quiet or assuring them that things are okay” I don’t understand why they perceive this. What is it about their physical memory that causes this perception?

    When dogs are given too much attention, the natural rising and falling cycle of emotion is constantly being interrupted and dog is arbitrarily being excited. So dog makes the association that interruption = intense excitement and owner attention. Then when the dog is left behind in a crate which by definition is an interruption, he gets intensely excited about the owner and “sees” its owner right at the cusp of its horizon.
