Free Separation Anxiety Lesson

Here's What Our Separation Anxiety Dog Training Program Offers

Welcome to our Separation Anxiety Dog Training Program, specifically designed to help dogs overcome the distress and anxiety associated with being left alone. Separation anxiety can be a challenging issue for both dogs and their owners, but with the right approach and support, we can help your dog learn to feel more comfortable and secure when left on their own.

Here’s what our Separation Anxiety Dog Training Program offers:

Understanding the Root Cause: We begin with a Free Separation Anxiety lesson where we will be conducting a thorough assessment to understand the underlying causes of your dog’s separation anxiety. This may include exploring past experiences, triggers, and environmental factors that contribute to their anxiety. Based on this evaluation, we develop a personalized training plan tailored to meet your dog’s unique needs.

Gradual Desensitization: Our program utilizes gradual desensitization techniques to help your dog become more accustomed to being alone. We start by introducing short periods of separation and gradually increase the duration over time, building your dog’s confidence and tolerance for being on their own.

Creating a Safe Space: We work with you to create a safe and comfortable environment for your dog when left alone. This may include providing a cozy den-like area with their favorite toys, bedding, and comforting scents to help reduce anxiety and promote relaxation.

Positive Association with Departures: We focus on creating positive associations with departures by incorporating rewards, treats, and calming activities before you leave. This helps your dog associate your departure with positive experiences and reduces their anxiety about being left alone.

Counterconditioning Techniques: We employ counterconditioning techniques to change your dog’s emotional response to being left alone. This involves pairing the experience of being alone with something positive, such as a special treat or toy, to help your dog associate being alone with good things.

Building Independence: Through training exercises and enrichment activities, we help your dog build confidence and independence, teaching them to self-soothe and cope with being alone more effectively.

Guaranteed Results, Continuous Support and Guidance: With our Results Guarantee we promise to reach the goals that you set forth at the start of the private obedience lessons and we will provide unlimited lessons until those goals are reached. Our commitment to your success doesn’t end with the lessons. We also provide unlimited ongoing phone and email support, to address any challenges or refine skills over the lifetime of your dog.

With our Separation Anxiety Dog Training Program, you’ll not only help your dog overcome their anxiety but also strengthen the bond between you and your furry companion. By providing the right support and training, we can help your dog feel more secure and confident when left alone, allowing both you and your pet to enjoy greater peace of mind and well-being.

Brice is simply the best. His goal is to be every customer’s last trainer and he is definitely ours. My pup momo is very smart but also very independent (read: stubborn) and in just two weeks she was an obedient little working dog. Regardless of the challenges you have have with your dog, I’m confident Brice can help you solve them.

Brice helped teach my dog and me several life-changing walking skills in our first 1-hour training session. I went from having extreme anxiety about walking my dog, to feeling much more in control and able to handle him.

I am very grateful to have had Montreal spend time with my dog who I was beginning to think I had no control over. He has thoroughly explained the behavior and how to change it and given me all I need to keep the work going so that I can feel more confident walking my dog!! Totally recommend Montreal.

Great experience with Total Dog. I have a stubborn as hell Bull Terrier and Montreal, one of the behaviorist trainers did an outstanding job with him. From obedience commands to walking on a leash (which he outright wouldn’t do before). Very impressed and very grateful. Montreal is one of the best.

Montreal trained my mom’s dog Elvis who was at the time showing aggressive/reactive behavior. We thought we had no hope. We were going to re-home him or put him down. Montreal taught us that patience and leadership is the key to success. In two weeks we had a changed dog. We knew that we had a lot more work to be done also by us as pet parents it has now been four months and Elvis is doing great thanks to Montreal for showing us how to have patience with our fur baby I would definitely recommend him as one of total dogs best trainers

We offer a Total Dog! dog training package that includes unlimited lessons until your dog reaches the goals identified at the start of the program. Following the program’s completion, you’ll have the opportunity to extend your dog’s training to help them reach new goals.
