What is Separation Anxiety?

Separation anxiety is a complicated and devastating disorder that affects approximately 15 percent of all dogs. Not only does it cause extreme panic in the dogs that are left alone, it creates extreme levels of stress for the humans who love them. Left untreated, separation anxiety only worsens with time.

Separation anxiety can be caused by a number of things, from a traumatic experience to changes in the home to genetic disposition. Often it’s not clear why your dog feels so panicked when you leave. But it’s important to remember that it’s not your fault and your dog isn’t mad at you or trying to get back at you. Help is available, and by using online consultations, you and your dog will work with methods that have already helped hundreds of dogs over come this condition.

Expert help. How does it work?

As the first Australian dog trainer to become a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer (CSAT), Jenny has completed intensive study with international Separation Anxiety Training expert Malena DeMartini.  By using technology to work in real time, we introduce your dog to gradual absences at the rate that’s right for them.  Which means your dog has the best opportunity to make progress! If the word “technology” makes you stressed, don’t be.  Jenny can take you through that as well – it’s easy! So no matter your location, help is at hand.

Best of all, you won’t have to go it alone. Jenny will be with you every step of the way, giving you all the support and guidance you need to bring relief to your dog, and peace and harmony to your home.

We had a young puppy with separation anxiety who could not cope at being alone for even a few minutes. We were at our wits end until we found Jenny who was a life saver! She was so caring and understanding and helped us to work with our puppy to learn his signals of anxiety, and how to help him to overcome them. She was so patient and attentive and within four weeks there was such an enormous difference in Freddie. We could not be more thrilled with the results and can’t recommend Jenny highly enough!
