Separation anxiety is one of the most common issues we see in dogs and it is one that will rarely solve itself. As pack animals by nature, when a member of the pack goes “missing” a dog feels extreme anxiety. In order to cope with this anxiety, a dog turns to often destructive or high-stress habits. Separation Anxiety Programs are done in our care. These are typically three-week programs however this may vary with the level of your dog’s anxiety.
