Are you unable to leave your dog home alone for fear of them destroying the house or their crate?
Are you getting complaints from the neighbors or landlord about excessive barking or howling while you are at work?
What is Separation Anxiety?
Separation anxiety is a panic disorder that is very similar to phobias in humans. It is estimated that about 17% of dogs suffer from the disorder. It is a common reason dogs are surrendered to shelters or euthanized.
Much like phobias in people such as a fear of spiders or flying, fear of being alone is not rational — you always come home to your dog! Many alone-time problem behaviors like destruction and barking are possible expressions of your dog’s discomfort or panic with being left alone. Your dog is not in control of their feelings of fear or the resulting problem behaviors.
Unfortunately, separation anxiety is not something that will resolve itself and in fact, can worsen over time. The good news is we can help! No more worries about destruction, neighbor complaints or Fido being stressed out while you’re away.
How is it treated?
Separation anxiety is treated systematically by breaking absences down into steps that your dog can handle. CSAT trainer Jane Wolff will provide the tools and support you need to help your dog recover from separation anxiety. Because separation anxiety is triggered by you leaving your house, it is most efficient and effective to treat it remotely. This means you do not have to be within our normal service area! As long as you are in the US and have an internet connection, we can work with you!
