Separation anxiety is a complex behaviour, and it is vital that it is properly diagnosed, so we will always ask you to video your dog when left alone before we try and tackle the problem. That way we can be sure if it is genuine anxiety, frustration or boredom (or any combination). We recommend that you have your dog checked over by a vet as a first port of call, to rule out any physical issues.
Because behaviour problems can differ so greatly from dog to dog, we offer bespoke behaviour modification programmes designed entirely around you, your dog and your lifestyle. While we offer no ‘magic wand’ or ‘quick fix’ solutions, we do offer a high level of support on your journey to improving your dog’s behaviour, and we use only the kindest, most effective force free behaviour modification techniques. We may suggest that you look into ways of preventing your dog of having to be home alone at all, such as dog walkers, sitters, day care etc.
Please complete the Contact form giving as much information as you can regarding the problem(s) you are having, plus the breed and age of your dog, and we will call you to discuss arranging an appointment.
All behaviour consultations are carried out by our highly experienced & qualified dog behaviourist, Donna McDonnell.
