The COVID-19 lockdown and your dog: Tips to help you get ahead of separation anxiety issues before they start

Not being alone for substantial amounts of time is believed to be a trigger of separation related problems in dogs. While we can’t predict with certainty if your or your clients’s dogs will struggle after the lock down ends, it is certainly a wise move to keep up their alone-time skills and make sure they do not become hyper-dependent on us now.

In this webinar we will discuss how to:

  • Create a safe haven
  • Use food toys for both enrichment and independence training
  • Work on impulse control and lowering frustration levels as needed
  • Do daily alone-time exercises
  • Cater the management and training approaches for fosters, dogs newly adopted, dogs with previously known separation related problems, and dogs who did not have problems prior to the lock down.
