The Canine Separation Anxiety Workbook is written to get dog owners to train their dogs to tolerate being left alone. It helps guide owners in defining the specific problem behaviors they face and then design and implement a contingency management plan to resolve it. The methods described are solidly scientific but written in an accessible language, providing dog owners with alternative approaches and the information to apply the approaches to their specific problem.
