Separation Anxiety

Is your dog panicking when you leave her alone? Are your neighbors beginning to complain about incessant barking? Is your dog destroying your house? Separation Anxiety is a heartbreaking condition, and it can be difficult to navigate. I am a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer (CSAT) and I can help!

Why hire a CSAT trainer? Learn more here: https://malenademartini.com/for-owners/why-hire-csat-trainer/

How does the process work?

  1. Fill out our questionnaire
  2. Follow-up 20 minute phone conversation to discuss the process in more depth
  3. Gather all the supplies necessary, including a doggy camera
  4. Schedule 4 online video sessions with me at your convenience
  5. Receive daily emails with homework and feedback on your progress

Why is this training via online video chat? Training for separation anxiety requires that we teach your dog how to be confident when they spend time alone at home. We will be observing them together, via live video chat, so they can practice being truly alone. Virtual training like this will give us a clear picture of what is going on when you leave the house, without any interference of your dog’s routine. We will talk more about this process during our phone conversation. It’s more simple than you might think!
