These are some of the symptoms exhibited in dogs with separation anxiety. There could be other factors causing these issues when your dog is alone, that do not necessarily mean your dog has separation anxiety.

In order to determine if your dog is suffering from separation anxiety or if another factor may be causing these problems with your dog, an Initial Assessment would need to take place to determine the best course of action and training program for you and your dog.

Your three step approach to end your dog's stress and suffering with our dog separation anxiety training program.

"Using Zoom technology, Rocco provided clear directions and guided me through the exact steps I needed to take when leaving and entering my apartment to provide the most reassurance to my dog. Between sessions, I completed exercises on my own and recorded data that Rocco provided and reviewed, and he was always available to answer questions and provide feedback. I can't recommend Rocco highly enough!"

“Rocco helped me with the technology setup prior to the first session. During the training, he was always there to answer any questions I had as well as help me cope with the stressful situation of owning a dog with separation anxiety. I highly recommend his separation anxiety training program"
