Expanded Description:

Separation Anxiety (SA) is a serious problem in which your dog panics at your departure and stays panicked until you return. Clear and concise, this easy-to-read booklet is written for anyone who wants to leave the house knowing that their dog is happy and their house is safe.

You’ll learn:
How to distinguish between SA and a dog acting out of boredom
What causes your dog’s SA, and how to determine her specific triggers
A safe and effective treatment plan
What to expect as you work through treatment
How to be proactive and take steps to prevent SA from happening in the first place

Another good value, get them all., October 1, 2009
Reviewer: David B
I have read most, if not all of Patricia McConnell's booklets. These are must-have books for anyone exposed to shelter, or rescue group dogs. Yet, these books are simple enough, that even the serious, regular pet owner can get benefit from as well.



This booklet like the rest, can be appreciated by even those who do NOT have a seperation anxiety(SA)dog. I have not yet had to deal directly with a seperation anxiety dog, but volunteering at the local shelter, it is only a matter of time.



A lot of effort is put into identifing what is, or is not SA. From my viewpoint of a reqular dog owner, I appreciate that! And the how to prevent SA information as well.



I think if you purchased every booklet Patricia ever wrote, you wouldn't be out any more than what a regular obedience class would cost. And SOooo much more information!

Reviewer:
Excellent book. The desensitization exercises are very effective and well worth the time it takes to ensure your dog is calm when you leave the house.
 
Great for mild cases!, May 15, 2007
Reviewer: Jacquelyn England
I liked this book a lot, but I did feel it concentrates quite a bit on milder cases of separation anxiety. The detailed explanations of how to tell your dog suffers from separation anxiety are great, as is the information on helping fix milder cases. The section referring to fixing extreme separation anxiety using gradual desensitization is slightly lacking, but other than that - great book.
