One of the most challenging experiences dog owners face is separation anxiety - a fear of being left alone.
Dogs who suffer from this phobia often vocalize, are destructive in the home, attempt to escape, show food avoidance or may harm themselves when left by themselves.
This in-depth course will help you understand why dogs may be displaying this behaviour, discuss common myths, get an in-depth understanding of triggers, and discuss how to develop an appropriate treatment plan.
We will work together to educate you so you can help your clients and ultimately their dogs become more comfortable being home alone. We will discuss how to overcome triggers and work on creating a detailed training plan to help modify the dog’s behaviour.
