Ask Alecia: Separation Anxiety

Today we’re bringing you the fourth part in the Hot Spot Tele-Training Series by Alecia Evans of Walk In Sync. Filled with tips from this holistic dog trainer, the series has included housetrainingloose leash walking, and teaching your dog to come when called.

This week, we discussed a topic that, regardless of whether you work at home or leave home for a daily job, can be a big worry: separation anxiety. Whether it takes the form of barking, destructive behavior, or other undesirable behaviors, separation anxiety is a big concern for many pet parents. Although Alecia had to travel out of town, we pre-recorded this week’s call so you can hear all of Alecia’s tips on separation anxiety. In this week’s call, we discuss:

  • What is the root cause of separation anxiety?
  • What is the single biggest mistake that humans make that fosters separation anxiety in dog?
  • Are there any herbal or natural remedies you can give to dogs or pups with separation anxiety?
  • How do you best work with your dog to assist in ending the anxiety?

If you’ve missed any of the previous calls, you’ll find recordings at the above links.
