Effective help for home alone dogs that have behavior problems can be hard to come by. From clichés about a tired dog being a happy/good dog to being “dominant” is the answer, both pet owners and pet pros can easily be confused about what causes home alone problems and what dogs need to learn to comfortably tolerate being left home alone. And because home alone problems often cause dogs to lose their homes, your behavior and training plans need to be as efficient as possible, and not waste precious time on exercises that won’t help the problem. In this three session webinar course on Help for Home Alone Dogs we’ll review the science on attachment and separation in dogs, and whether the evidence shows “over-attachment” is really the reason for some home alone problems. From there we’ll move on to how to discriminate among the variety of motivations for home alone problems, and how to recognize those that “masquerade” as them.
