Separation Anxiety Training
Does your dog suffer from Separation Anxiety? Do you come home to house soiling, destruction, phone calls from neighbors or notes from animal control because of your dog’s barking? Does your dog lick or chew sores on him-self when you are away? When you return home is your dog extremely aroused, jumping, barking and even biting in his extreme joy and relief to see you?
Separation Anxiety and separation related distress are emotional reactions to being left alone, the unwanted behavior is an outlet for the pent up frustration, fear and anxiety a dog feels when being left alone…in short the dog panics resulting in a variety of reflexive and/or physiological behaviors, as he desperately seeks the return of his human. At A Good Dog Day, we can help you resolve this fear and teach your dog to relax when you need to leave him at home alone and give you the tools you need to help set him up for success!

The cornerstone of our program is to stop the roller coaster and prevent the panic attacks so your dog can get his chemistry and stress levels back to baseline, we set his body up for learning and begin to build trust; trust that it is SAFE to stay home.
We will partner with you and your dog’s veterinarian to ensure that he is supported both physically and emotionally during the training process to help your dog feel safe and secure.
