Separation Anxiety Support
This is a minimum 4 week commitment beginning with an initial behaviour consult (90 mins) followed by weekly progress check-ins by phone or zoom.
Your dogs can be alone at home without stress, let us show you how!
We understand that having a dog with separation related disorders can be incredibly overwhelming and isolating. We’ve put together an amazing support program to help you help your best friend. We’ve gathered the most up-to-date information and research from experts around the globe to create a community of well informed, supported pet parents!
After this session you'll understand why separation anxiety is so rampant in our pet dogs, why some out-dated training information is making the problem worse, the vital role nutrition, sleep and exercise play in anxiety expression. Our goal is to provide the knowledge, practical tools and support to set your dog up for success.
Together we’ll create a step-by-step, individualized plan to build independence, confidence and coping skills while being alone.
Topics covered include:
- Genetics, attachment theory; early life experience
- Stress and the effects on body and brain
- Role of nutrition and sleep on behaviour
- Exercise physiology and the effects on brain and body
