Separation Anxiety in Dogs

This can be a particularly distressing problem for the owner as well as the dog. We are often contacted be people who've become prisoners in their own home. Some dare not leave the house, even to go to the shops, and as for going out and having a 'social life'... they can forget that. They fear the dog will bark and annoy the neighbours, or destroy the house before they return, not to mention the puddles that need mopping-up. This problem isn't confined to a particular breed, age or gender of dog, although it is common in rescue dogs and dogs of a certain personality.

There are many reasons for separation anxiety, and only a thorough investigation of the dogs background in its home environment will pinpoint the exact cause. Some dogs are never taught that it's okay to separate from their owners. They learn from an early age that it's okay to follow you everywhere in the house, even to the bathroom, and some will even insist on accompanying you in the shower. With our unique Bark Busters behaviour modification system, we will identify the underlying causes for the separation anxiety, and put an action plan and appropriate therapy in place to correct and cure the behaviour.
