Separation Anxiety in dogs used to be thought of as an unfixable behavior issue. In fact, even today, many trainers shy away from taking Separation Anxiety cases. For far too long the success rate with these cases as been too low and the problem too daunting for most trainers.
All of that is changing.
Separation Anxiety is the name veterinarians and veterinary behaviorists assign to a syndrome of behaviors. Dogs who have Separation Anxiety do one of more of these things when left alone.
- Bark, cry, whine, or howl.
- Chew at door frames, walls, and window sills.
- Dig at doors and walls.
- Tear down blinds.
- Lose control of their bladders and bowels.
- Pant and drool.
Starting this month (October) I will be accepting a number of Separation Anxiety clients to lead them through and program of care and training with a proven track record of success. It’s based in solid behavior science with all of the patience, compassion and attention to detail you are used to from me and the Michael’s Dogs Behavior Group.
Look for more details in a few weeks on social media and on MichaelsDogs.com .
