Separation Anxiety Modification

We can help your dog be home alone!

If your dog suffers from separation anxiety, then you’re suffering too! It’s simply not possible to be with your dog all the time, but you have leaving him or her alone because you know that misery and destruction will be the result. Separation anxiety can produce a lot of anxiety in dogs due to an increase in in cortisol and other stress chemicals. If your absence happens frequently,  the anxiety can be almost constant, causing a negative reaction you can count on.
