As the title suggests, this seminar will reveal the not-commonly-believed fact that resolution of separation anxiety is truly possible.
Separation anxiety wreaks havoc on dog and guardian alike. The suffering the dog endures is apparent in every heart-wrenching howl. Guardians experience deep worry and frustration, as well. Dogs are destroying their homes which become quite costly to repair, landlords are issuing final warnings concerning the barking problems and tension runs high when one more vet bill rolls in after the dog has hurt himself in yet another escape attempt. These are all too familiar scenarios and there are many others.
It is estimated that at least 17% of the dogs in the United States suffer from separation anxiety and we are seeing newer figures that indicate this number is likely an underestimation.
Separation anxiety is not easy to resolve but it is simple in many ways and help is at hand for trainers and guardians.
Advances in technology, new ways of thinking about support, and a structured approach to creating separation anxiety plans have turned a nearly impossible task into a doable one with successful resolution of even the most severe separation anxiety cases being attainable.
