Separation anxiety affects approximately 50% of pet dogs in the US. We understand that it’s not only extremely challenging for the dog, but also a tremendous reason for worry and frustration to the pet parent. There is good news though – separation anxiety is indeed fixable. You’ll learn what separation anxiety is, the myths that surround it, and information with which to base your training. The process is a slow and systematic one, but if treated correctly, the prognosis for separation anxiety is excellent.

While the prevalence of separation anxiety has always been high, we’re starting to see increases of epidemic proportions as the world starts to reopen post-pandemic. The good news is that this is a fixable issue. While there is no one-size-fits-all training plan for separation anxiety, there are many standard operating procedures that we’ll review, including how to create a systematic training protocol and how many common treatment options are not actually helpful. Dog professionals will leave with an in-depth direction on how to proceed with their separation anxiety clients.
