Separation Anxiety/Separation Related Behaviors: Get Started

I look forward to helping you teach your dog that being left alone is safe! Using Systematic Desensitization, we will work together to keep your dog under their panic point so that they are able to realize that your departure is not a traumatic experience. They may not love being alone, after all the ARE social creatures and prefer to be with their family, but you walking out the door will not lead to an immediate meltdown!

Follow the easy steps below to get started.

Step One:

Schedule A Free Phone Consultation

This is a 20-30 minute call to discuss your situation.

Ask me questions, gain more information about separation anxiety, and learn how I can help your family and your dog.

Step Two:

Tell Me About Your Dog

Fill out a brief questionnaire and submit it at least 48 hours in advance of your phone appointment.

As soon as you book your Discovery Call appointment, you will receive an email. Please select the appropriate link in the email and fill out the form. This gives me basic information about your situation and saves time by collecting necessary information ahead of time so we can concentrate on the problem at hand. 

Step Three:

Schedule your Initial Assessment

After we chat on the phone, it is time to schedule our first meeting! This will take about 1.5 hours and include a review of the training protocols, introduction to the technology needed for training, and an Initial Assessment of your dog so I have the information needed to start.

Step Four:

Schedule your Weekly Live Reassessments and start training

Separation Anxiety training requires a minimum four (4) week commitment. While the process is straightforward, even simple, it is not easy and takes time. You need to be thinking about months rather than weeks. You will receive an email with the link to book your Weekly Reassessments. Training must begin within 3 days of your Initial Assessment to ensure that we start at a point where your dog can be successful or a second Initial Assessment will be required.
