Separation Anxiety

When left alone, does your dog panic or act out? Do they exhibit actions such as excessive vocalization, destructive behavior, potty accidents, or possibly even injuring themselves? If so, your dog could be experiencing Separation Anxiety (SA). Let us help you bring harmony to your home and your dog gain self-confidence when you're away. Our Separation Anxiety Program will help you learn to desensitize your dog to being left alone, giving you more freedom to leave your home...and give your dog the benefit of new-found confidence!
