Separation Success Level 1 - A Free Mini-Guide


COVID 19:        THIS MINI-COURSE IS NOW FREE

PLEASE DON'T WAIT UNTIL YOU GO BACK TO WORK TO FIND OUT IF YOUR DOG IS GOING TO STRUGGLE (EVEN IF THEY WERE PREVIOUSLY FINE)


There are few things more fulfilling and pleasurable than sharing your life with a dog who loves to join in with the activities you enjoy together and then settles quietly in between when you need to crack on with your own things and they need to catch up on some rest.

There are some really simple things you can do to achieve this and enable your dog to settle at home! These will help prevent separation issues from developing in the first place (especially during periods of change, for example if your working hours alter) and may help resolve separation issues which are starting to creep in at their earliest stages. 

We cover when separation issues might arise, the main factors behind separation issues; three easy areas where you can make a difference straight away, how to recognise if you have a separation problem and get some extra help.
