WHAT IS SEPARATION ANXIETY?
Separation Anxiety is an umbrella term used to describe a variety of alone-time challenges in dogs. Guardians dealing with this panic disorder report that:
Their neighbours are starting to complain about the incessant barking the whole time their dog is left alone.
They return from absences to find their homes destroyed, particularly around exit points.
Their dogs won't eat (even their favorite treats) when left alone.
Their dogs are having potty accidents, but only when left alone.
WHAT IS A
Behaviour consultations are appropriate for dogs who are upset. Together, we work to change the way they feel. These challenges include:
Fear/anxiety toward strangers/visitors
Fear of thunderstorms and other noises
Complex behaviour issues
Fear of new situations
HOW WE CAN HELP
We offer a variety of programs to help you achieve your behaviour and training goals. Together, we will take your dog from afraid to brave!
Loving a dog with fear and/or anxiety is hard. You may have romanticized about all the wonderful things that you would do with your dog that just aren't possible. Or, if you're dealing with separation anxiety, simple things like having a night out are out of reach.
Together, we will get clear on your goals and implement a systematic, step-by-step plan that will get you there. The Learned Dog team will be your expert guide and biggest cheerleader as we coach you through the plan.
Are you working on a case that you can’t seem to resolve? Is your client stuck on a plateau or regressing back?
Sometimes it takes an outside eye or a new approach to identify and resolve challenges that stand in your way. At The Learned Dog, we help you understand how to strengthen your training methods and work with you to create customized training plans to give you the most efficient path to resolving behaviour problems and teaching new skills.

Separation anxiety is a complex problem to deal with, but Claudine's careful reading and the strategies put in place have been successful in our dog's rehabilitation.

Claudine not only saved Robi and taught her not to panic when I was away, but she also taught me to regain confidence in my dog and to believe that one day Robi's separation anxiety would be a thing of the past.
