DEALING WITH DOG SEPARATION ANXIETY
Separation anxiety is a heart breaking syndrome of behaviours that causes profound distress to dogs and owners alike. It results in damaged furniture, indoor toileting, barking and howling, and can even lead to dogs hurting themselves in their panic at being left alone. It takes away freedom, and taints the otherwise joyful experience of owning a dog. But it can be fixed, and I would like to show you how.

YOU LOVE YOUR DOG BUT YOU FEEL LIKE THEY ARE RUINING YOUR LIFE
First of all, I would like to say I know where you are at right now. You love your dog but you feel like they are ruining your life: stressing you out, and costing you a small fortune in treatments and care for the times when you just can’t be around.
If they’ve got it really bad, going to the next room or taking a shower in peace have probably become distant memories – something other dog owners can do but not you.
Even pre-lockdown, you’d long since said goodbye to spontaneity, big nights out, and nipping to the shop for that missing ingredient or a pint of milk. And as the world starts to return to “normal” you are dreading leaving your dog more than ever. You know the past few months will have made things worse, not better.
You may even be amongst the large group of dog owners who didn’t see a problem before lockdown, but you know your dog and you know how much they have loved having you home these past weeks. You are desperate to get back to normal life – meeting friends, going to the pub or a café, even seeing work colleagues again. You need to make your dog understand everything is going to be okay – so how are you going to do this? And what if it doesn’t work?
BEFORE you waste any more time or money on quick fixes, books, herbal remedies or pheromone treatments, AND
BEFORE you spend another minute beating yourself up for not being able to solve this problem, I need you to know TWO things:
IT. IS. NOT. YOUR. FAULT.
The reasons why a dog develops separation anxiety can been many, and complex, but despite what your friends and family tell you it is not because you “love them too much” or “spoil them”. And it is definitely not because you are refusing to use a “tough love” approach and let them cry it out.
IT’S A REALLY TOUGH PROBLEM.
It would be dishonest of me to tell you there is an easy way out, BUT I do strongly believe that by being your ally and creating a tailored training experience for you and your dog, we can get you quickly and painlessly on the right track, Then all you need to do is keep going!
You’ve been putting in a great deal of effort to try and make things work so far, and that alone takes strength and courage. Separation anxiety owners tend to be some of the most dedicated owners and by applying that commitment in the right places, I will show you what progress really looks like.
HOW MY 4 WEEKS DOG SEPARATION ANXIETY PACKAGE WORKS
When you’re dealing with destroyed furniture, pee or poop on your carpet, or upset neighbours who are threatening to call the council over your poor pooch’s howling, it can easily seem like there is no possible way out of the situation you are in. But I can promises there are MANY, we just have to find the one that is right for your dog.
It may not seem like it, but all of these behaviours show just how much your dog needs your help. They are suffering just as much as you and research has shown us time and again just how damaging it can be when an animal (or human!) suffers chronic stress. It is very rare for separation anxiety to cure itself, and sadly many dogs not receiving the right treatment deteriorate and start showing cracks in their behaviour outside the home too.
With my help, in the first 4 weeks Cleo achieved enough home alone time for Claire to pop out to the local corner shop. By month two they were well on their way to an hour of stress free, relaxed time apart!
“Cleo had lots of issues when she arrived from Cyprus, including separation anxiety. I started to do some of the training on my own but found I was guessing a little and struggling to keep motivated. I felt a bit hopeless to be honest, and it was hard to see how my little shadow would ever be left alone, given she initially couldn’t cope well even for short periods of time like taking a shower!
The best bit about River’s method for treating separation anxiety is her patience she is very sympathetic and always reminding me of the end goal and giving me lots of confidence it is achievable. River brings the discipline I was lacking without putting me off. She loves Cleo even though she hasn’t met her and she wants to see us succeed as much as I want to be able to get out long enough to go to the shops!” Claire & Cleo, Edinburgh 2020.
Is it possible to “Cure” dog separation anxiety?
The first thing I need you to know about Separation Anxiety:
Separation anxiety, also known as “separation distress” or “separation related behaviours” is an umbrella term, meaning it is used to describe a wide range of symptoms but does not provide a definitive “diagnosis” as to the source of your dog’s problem. Because separation anxiety talks about symptoms and not any one underlying condition, we don’t focus on a “cure” as it were, but rather on measurable improvements in behaviour over time.
If you arrived on this page because you are looking for a quick fix for your dog’s separation anxiety, I am afraid I have to be honest with you and say there really is no rapid cure for this condition. Anyone promising to cure your dog’s separation anxiety immediately is either going to advocate punishing, frightening, or even hurting your dog, or try to sell you an expensive remedy. Possibly both. They also probably don’t understand what canine separation anxiety really is.
I appreciate why you would want to look for a quick fix though, and I am ready to work with you even if you are reading this and thinking time is not on your side. You need your life back, and you need your dog to be okay, and together we can work through the overwhelm and get things back on track.
The “cure” for separation anxiety is not a “cure” at all, but a gradual process of exposing your dog to the thing they fear the most – being left alone. By working in small, careful steps following your tailored separation anxiety training plan, we will teach your dog there is nothing to be afraid of. By addressing the underlying causes of your dog’s problem behaviours, we remove the need for them to engage in them – and voile! No more howling the house down or chewing through the walls and furniture!
TREATING SEPARATION ANXIETY IN DOGS: WHAT
If you have spent any time on the internet, or asking friends and family you will probably have come across many of these treatments for separation anxiety in dogs. You may even have tried some but feel less than confident about the results. THE TRUTH IS: SOME OF THESE ARE GOOD TACTICS, AND SOME ARE GOING TO CAUSE YOU TO FAIL. Some will work for other dogs, but not yours. Some will make the job harder and others easier. By working with a dog separation anxiety specialist like me, you can ensure you are on the best training programme for your dog, and kick start your separation anxiety training with confidence!
