Separation anxiety and home alone training

Separation Anxiety and Home Alone Training

We want to help you and your dog overcome separation anxiety so that you can both get your lives back.

Karen specialises in helping dogs and their owners overcome separation anxiety and has trained with Julie Naismith, the author of the separation anxiety training guide, Be Right Back! on her SA Pro Trainer Programme.

There is so much (incorrect) advice out there about how to 'fix' separation anxiety, often using inhumane and damaging methods.  Let Karen help you help your dog overcome separation anxiety using kind and evidence based methods that work.

If you book a 121 package of support with Karen, you can be sure that you are working with someone who knows how to help you and your dog get over separation anxiety.  

You are also choosing to work with someone who has a lot of experience and who has helped and supported hundreds and hundreds of puppy and dog owners.

So if you are looking for someone who really knows what they are talking about, then choose to work with Karen.  Yes it can be hard to stay the course and there are no quick fixes, but you'll be supported by her on your journey to freedom.  Every step of the way!

The support is delivered virtually as this approach has been proven time and time again to be exceptionally successful in the treatment of separation anxiety.  It is not useful or necessary to have the 'trainer' in your home when you are doing the separation anxiety training exercises.  This creates a totally false situation and can create unnecessary stress for your dog which will inevitably cause the training to fail.

In the separation training, our aim is to keep your dog calm and free from anxiety, and to set you both up to succeed.  Conducting training sessions by video means that Karen can see exactly what is happening during the exercise, can give you feedback and answer questions, without compromising the outcome.
