Separation Anxiety in dogs can be a distressing psychological condition whereby dogs become anxious and panicked at being left.
Dogs separation anxiety can present a range of symptoms which can include:
- Destructive Behaviours
- Refusal to eat
- Inappropriate toileting
- Trying to escape
Dogs that have separation anxiety can display these behaviours either when left totally alone, if a dog has been rehomed, you have moved house or if their special person in the family has gone out, despite there being other family members in the house with the dog.

If you own a dog with separation anxiety, you must know what it can feel like and how frustrating and upsetting it can be.
You do not have the freedom to go out and make spontaneous plans as before. You can feel trapped in your own home. Even a quick trip to the supermarket cannot be achieved unless you have someone to be with your dog.
This is where I can help. Dog separation anxiety is treatable, but progress can sometimes seem slow, taking weeks and sometimes months to get your dog to a point where he is calm at being left for your desired period of time. This is because the condition is emotional and we are dealing with your dog's deep rooted fear of being left. This all takes time. I use desensitization techniques to help with the dog anxiety, so everything is done at the dog's pace, without him feeling stressed or panicked.
