What is Separation Anxiety?
Separation Anxiety is a disorder that affects the lives of millions of dogs and the people who love them.
The suffering of a dog with Separtation Anxiety is like that of a panic attack in humans.
It CAN be successfully treated
There are a wide range of symptoms with SA:
Urination or defecation
Damage to furniture, carpeting or other flooring
Damage to clothing, eyeglasses, or other items (usually heavily scented by owner)
Destruction around the entry and exit points of the home
Bent crate wires or doors from attempts to escape
Shredded crate bedding or mats
What if you could go from this....
- Destruction of doors, windows, furniture or other items
- Complaints from neighbors about barking
- Bent crate wires or doors
- Vet visits for wounds from anxious licking, chewing or escape attempts
- Potty accidents
- Stress and guilt from knowing your dog is anxious when left home alone
Being able to go out to dinner, run errands or travel without worrying about your dog
Coming home to a dog that has been happily sleeping all day on the couch instead of tearing up your house in a panic attack
What causes Separation Anxiety?
Separation Anxiety can be triggered by numerous underlying issues such as re-homing, changes in the household, the death of another dog in the home, moving to a new home, or traumatic experiences.
You did not cause this behavior! Your dog can recover!
Separation Anxiety worsens over time without treatment. Treating Separation Anxiety requires time and patience. But the results are well worth it. Just imagine being able to go out to dinner without worrying what you will find whe you get home.
How the Separation Anxiety Program Works
When working with Separation Anxiety, we need to address the underlying anxiety (the emotion), not the symptoms we may see. To do this, the behavior modification protocol we use is desensitization, which exposes the dog to something that is scary-the human leaves-in very small absences that increase over time, your dog learns to be home alone and happy.
And you get your life back!
Every dog is unique. This is the reason we offer each client an individualized training program that is
designed to their dog's specific training needs.
The 1st Step
A 90 minute initial assessment so we can review your dog's history and your training goals, and observe and evaluate your dog's behavior when they are left home alone. This assessment is conducted via Zoom to ensure that my presence does not change the dynamics of the situation and your dog's behavior.

20 customized daily training plans (five plans per week, with 2 rest days)
