Separation Anxiety: Both Sides Now

2-Disk Set.     
Running Time: 
2 hours, 43 minutes

Many owners become frustrated and overwhelmed living with a dog with separation anxiety, and some even give up. While most trainers are aware of standard protocols and approaches, some dogs just haven’t read the game plans, and outside-the-box solutions are needed. Living with Sierra, a shelter dog who came with a deeply entrenched case of separation anxiety, has given Nicole an insider’s perspective on separation issues and has emphasized the fact that a cookie-cutter approach does not work for every dog. Nicole’s twenty years of experience as a canine behavior specialist, along with her newfound empathy for owners, allowed her to develop outside-the-box, creative ways to address separation problems and to support owners.

This presentation includes lecture and video.

Topics include:

  • How to accurately diagnose a separation issue, and how to differentiate separation anxiety from isolation distress
  • Root causes, and how owners can have an influence for better or worse
  • Creative management options, including what to do in an emergency
  • The Alone Zone: Where in (or outside) the house to leave your dog when you’re away; what is not recommended and why
  • The latest, easy-to-use technological advances that allow you to monitor your dog remotely
  • Assessing if and when pharmacological intervention is appropriate, and two natural alternatives to consider
  • Complementary products and therapies that may help
  • Separation anxiety myths (You might be surprised at some of the ”accepted wisdom” that is simply untrue!)
  • Common questions, such as “Could getting a second dog help?”
  • A structure to help you formulate a customized behavior modification plan

This seminar is appropriate for trainers, shelter/rescue workers, owners, and other dog enthusiasts and professionals.
