If you have a dog who panics when he or she is left home alone then this is the training for you – an extended 8 week programme to ensure you make effective progress.

The best way to get your dog over separation anxiety is to gradually expose him to being on his own. But in tiny steps that he can handle, keeping him below his anxiety threshold 100% of the time.

Separation anxiety is unique amongst the dog behaviours I work with in that it’s best treated without me physically present because if I am there your dog will behave differently. It’s about teaching your dog that you leaving the house isn’t a scary thing. You don’t need to have me in the room to do that, just my daily support with tailor written daily plans for your dog so we work at the speed he feels comfortable with.

I use only tried and trusted methods supported by research (and I am a total geek and continue to jump on conferences, seminars and new courses to look for new research). I use these methods because they succeed for the good majority of dogs (when you consistently apply them).

How long does it take to fix?

There is no way to predict how long it will take to help a dog with anxiety as we are working with emotions; most notably fear. Fear is the easiest emotion for animals to get and the hardest one to resolve. Every dog is different, and so it wouldn’t be right to give a target date. Plus, the recovery process is also affected by you committing to the training. But there are things you can do to speed the process along including suspending absences.

Dog anxiety is highly treatable and I specialise in dogs with fear and anxiety related behaviours. Yes, progress can sometimes seem slow at the start, but once you get going with the training you’ll see process accelerate.
