This presentation encourages trainers to think ahead and work with owners to teach them the skills their dog or puppy needs to enjoy their own company before separation problems develop. It considers what separation anxiety is and how it affects our dogs as emotional beings. It explains how to teach our dogs to be independent in the home while we are around in order to build foundation skills for being left, and looks at how the home environment can be managed to encourage relaxation. A number of tools are explored that support our dogs when alone and help them to relax, giving owners the freedom to leave the house knowing their dog is happy. This is an intermediate level webinar based on Learning Theory. Webinar Objectives To explain about a number of tools to enrich a dog's home-alone environment, whether or not they have separation issues To consider the merits of problem prevention, successful first learning and the advantages of early home-alone training in puppies - not leaving it to chance! To encourage clients to empathise with loneliness and fear by putting themselves in their dog's 'paws', and to motivate clients to put training strategies in place even without problem behaviour to 'fix' To help improve the overall well-being of dogs and puppies by teaching them to enjoy their own company To ultimately reduce the number of severe separation anxiety cases we see as trainers and behaviourists
