Separation Anxiety: Both Sides Now by Nicole Wilde

Separation Anxiety: Both Sides Now
Nicole Wilde

Many owners become frustrated and overwhelmed living with a dog with separation anxiety, and some even give up. While most trainers are aware of standard protocols and approaches, some dogs just haven’t read the game plans, and outside-the-box solutions are needed. Living with Sierra, a shelter dog who came with a deeply entrenched case of separation anxiety, has given Nicole an insider’s perspective on separation issues and has emphasized the fact that a cookie-cutter approach does not work for every dog. Nicole’s twenty years of experience as a canine behavior specialist, along with her newfound empathy for owners, allowed her to develop outside-the-box, creative ways to address separation problems and to support owners.

This presentation includes lecture and video.

Topics include:

How to accurately diagnose a separation issue, and how to differentiate separation anxiety from isolation distress
