Committed trainers and owners can solve this problem!
Treating separation anxiety in dogs is not quick or easy but it can be done. The successful ingredients are cooperation, commitment and time on the part of the dog trainer and the owners. In this important new book, author Malena DeMartini-Price shares her 5 Phase Treatment Protocol and related strategies to help dogs overcome the fear of being left alone and addresses the trauma it can inflict on both the dog and their owners. Trainer handouts, detailed step-by-step training tips and a sample initial interview questionnaire are included.

Learn about:
The critical role that suspending absences plays in the early part of the treatment plan and how owners and trainers can make this more manageable.
How dog trainers can make the treatment of separation anxiety in dogs a specialized business.
The role that management techniques and medications can play to help support the recommended behavior modification strategies.
How technology, including remote feeding devices and web cams, can be used to monitor a dog's progress in overcoming his fear of being left alone.

    A must-read

    Posted by Caitlin Hart on 31st Dec 2019

    Having been working with our SA-affected rescue dog for almost 8 months now, I've read everything I could get my hands on. This book has been head and shoulders above the rest. I'm so grateful for DeMartini-Price for writing this. It has given me hope that we can get the rest of the way there. While the book is in theory written for trainers, I found it perfectly accessible as an owner.
