Separation Anxiety

Sadly, more and more dogs are suffering from separation anxiety and it is really important that you get qualified advice on how to deal with this. Essentially a dog that suffers with this will be terrified of being left alone in the same way that a human might be terrified of heights or spiders. Therefore, your dog will need lots of support before they can cope with ever being left alone.

You will need qualified behaviour support and we can also help by recommending supplements and possibly medication.
