Canine Separation Anxiety
What is canine separation anxiety (SA)?
Separation Anxiety is an anxiety disorder among puppies and dogs in which a genuine panic attack occurs when a dog is left alone. It is estimated that over 17% of dogs in the US suffer from home alone anxiety and there are indications that the pandemic may have increased this percentage. There is likely a genetic predisposition and it can be triggered by a move, divorce, marriage, arrival of a new baby or other family member, including a new family pet, death of a person or another family pet, or the normal process of aging.
Without treatment, SA will worsen over time. Treating the condition requires time and patience, but with a success rate of over 73%, there is hope. Our program will show your dog how to relax and enjoy his alone time.
