Separation Anxiety Training For North County San Diego Community Dogs


Do You Come Home To General Destruction? Or Worse: A Dog Who Has Injured Themselves?

If your pup is always at your heels, panics when you pick up your keys, or is causing self-harm while you’re out, it can feel overwhelming and stressful. While separation anxiety is traumatizing for your dog, it can leave you feeling isolated and hopeless.

With the help of modern technology and a plan for systematic desensitization, we’ll be able to observe your pup’s behavior and give you daily, easy-to-execute exercises designed to help your dog recover from their alone-time issues.
