Our SEPARATION ANXIETY Program

Are you afraid to leave your dog alone for fear he’ll hurt himself, damage your home or disturb the neighbors?  These concerns are more common than you think and may be rooted in Separation Anxiety.  Separation Anxiety is a debilitating panic disorder – a welfare issue which affects an estimated 15% of dogs in the US (Nicholas Dodman , DVM, Tufts Cummins School for Veterinary Medicine).  Unfortunately, most dogs with separation anxiety tend to get worse if left alone repeatedly while experiencing anxiety.  And if you live with a dog who can not be left be alone, you know that it affects the well-being of your entire family.  No one wants to give up on a loving pet and no one should have to do that. Yet, separation anxiety has long been considered one of the more difficult canine behaviors to resolve. We can help.   

How It Works

  • Compassionate, customized approach for your dog and your family
  • Work through daily exercises with ongoing support by a credentialed, certified separation anxiety specialist (CSAT)
  • Address the underlying cause of your dog’s behavior, not just the symptoms
  • Work 100% remotely while your dog learns to relax when home alone
  • Your dog’s behavior is observed in real-time to assure that your dog and your home remain safe during training
  • Relief begins immediately
  • Get help regardless of where you live (Know someone who can benefit from this Program?  Please pass it on using one of the share buttons at the bottom of the page!)

Separation Anxiety 4-Week Program

Druffy had developed anxiety issues to the point we no longer felt safe leaving him home alone.  His excessive vocalizations were disturbing neighbors and he was destroying our carpet.  Our local vet suggested we reach out to Leslie at “It’s Your Dog School for Dogs” for help.  Leslie designed a remote program tailored specifically for Druffy which now enables us to leave him alone longer than we ever thought possible.  The sessions were conducted in real time under direct observation so we always knew Druffy and our home were not in harm’s way.  It’s been a marathon, not a sprint, and there’s plenty more work to be done.  But we now know how to support our baby while he continues to learn.  ~ Rachael & CJ G.
