What is Separation Anxiety?

Separation Anxiety is an anxiety disorder which causes your dog to experience panic when alone or separated from their guardian.. 


Your dog may be suffering from Separation Anxiety if they display any or all of the following:


  • Continuous barking, howling, or whining during any period of alone time

  • Destructive behaviours such as chewing of furniture, shoes, or other forbidden items when left home alone or away from you

  • Toilet accidents despite being housetrained

  • Shaking, pacing, or signs of stress before you leave home

  • Frantic attempts to escape from the crate, or house, when a guardian leaves


It is possible for your dog to be suffering with separation anxiety and not exhibit the behaviours identified above.

Benefits of Remote Training

Remote training is simple and stress-free, and eliminates the distraction of trainer presence.


I work with you and your dog remotely to maximise on improving the separation behaviours present without distraction.
