Separation Anxiety Program

Does your dog vocalize when left alone or separated from you? Are you receiving complaints from the neighbours or are you coming home to a new disaster every day? Tired of being told to exercise your dog and leave a stuffed Kong? We hear you. You’ve probably tried everything.  

Caryn Liles was the first Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer (CSAT) in Canada and co-taught the internship program for other Certified Trainers to receive their certification in Separation Anxiety training. Meg D'Arcy is a recent graduate of the program (as well as a Jean Donaldson Academy for Dog Trainers graduate!) and is working with many of our separation anxiety cases.

Separation Anxiety and Isolation Distress are resolvable behaviour challenges – in fact our CSATs boast a 73% success rate thanks to the intensive protocol with frequent support. We work with cases all over North America.  

We know exactly how it feels to have a dog who experiences anxiety when left alone - the guilt, frustration, anguish, and helplessness. Get in touch with us and let us relieve YOUR symptoms too!

Virtual Separation Anxiety Consultations

Our virtual Separation Anxiety consultations take place over video conferencing such as Facetime / Skype / Google+Hangout / Zoom. 

Once your completed Prospective Client Questionnaire is received, We will contact you to set up a FREE, no obligation phone call to discuss your case and determine the best way to proceed.  This consultation is done over the phone and takes approximately 20-30 minutes.

The next step is to set up a time to meet where your Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer can observe your dog (remotely) during an absence. During this absence, we will be able to assess your dog’s pattern of behaviours and determine their individual threshold. Based on this information we will create a roadmap that will lead you down the path to having a dog that is more comfortable when left at home alone! 

After over a decade of working in-home with dogs experiencing separation anxiety and isolation distress, we have found that working virtually with regular support each week has shown to be significantly more successful with upwards of a 73% success rate.
