One-on-One Separation Anxiety Training

Designed for any dog struggling to be left alone, a certified Separation Anxiety Professional with in-depth knowledge on separation anxiety will lead you through gradual, daily exercises to help your dog feel better about being left alone.

How Does Separation Anxiety Training Work?

The Initial Consult

During our 60-90 minute Zoom meeting, we’ll discuss your dog’s separation anxiety, your specific goals, and perform an initial alone time assessment to establish our starting point. By the end of our meeting, you’ll have a firm understanding of the process, and we’ll discuss next steps for your tailored plan.

Getting to Work

After the initial consultation, we’ll get you started with regular training activities designed to help your dog relax when it comes to your departure. Tailored to your dog’s needs and the specifics of your home & departure, you’ll be supported every step of the way.

Regular Check-ins

For the duration of your program, we’ll meet at regular intervals to discuss your dog’s progress, perform a reassessment of your dog’s phobias, and set you up for the following week.

Community Support

Join a community of supportive dog guardians who have been in your shoes.

Misconceptions Around Separation Anxiety

Myth

s

You caused your dog’s separation anxiety

s

You should just let your dog cry it out

s

Your dog is being difficult, stubborn, or spiteful.

Your dog’s separation anxiety will resolve on its own

Truth

Z

A multitude of factors contribute to separation anxiety including genetics, health, and environment.

Z

Letting a dog who suffers with alone time issues “cry it out” will often only lead to further issues, prolonging your dog’s recovery.

Z

Much like humans suffering with anxiety disorders, dog’s suffering from separation anxiety can’t control their outward display of anxiety.

If left untreated, separation anxiety can become worse, and take longer to resolve.
