Why Hire A Certified Trainer for
Separation Anxiety?

Separation anxiety is upsetting and isolating for the humans and down right terrifying for the dog. You may have been told it separation anxiety is "untreatable" or, after reaching out to get help, found that many trainers are not comfortable taking such cases. You may have tried "all the things" suggested and still find yourself frustrated and unsupported; a prisoner in your own home.

Fortunately, there is HOPE! With the help of a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer (CSAT), it is possible to reduce or resolve the panic your dog feels when left alone.

Separation Anxiety

What is it?

Generally speaking, if you dog has separation anxiety they become stressed and anxious when they do not have access to you. Most frequently described as being in a state of panic, your dog behaves in ways that are unusual for them and cause distress, worry and frustration for you and present welfare risks for your beloved pup.

Some common signs of separation anxiety are:

  • Constant vocalization (barking, whining, howling, baying)

  • Panting/Drooling

  • Pacing

  • Property damage, especially at exit points

  • Loss of bladder/bowel control

  • Self harm/mutilation
