Separation anxiety in dogs has been at the forefront of everyone’s minds for a long time, but particularly for the past 18 months. According to several recent polls, about 50% of pet dogs are reported as suffering from some form of separation-related problems. In the US alone, that is equivalent to over 44 million pet dogs which is astounding and certainly implies that there is a welfare issue. So what lies in the future for separation anxiety dogs and their loving guardians? Fortunately, separation anxiety has been the #1 most researched and discuss disorder in published studies in the fields of applied animal behavior and veterinary behavior. This tremendous research combined with huge increases in dog professional’s awareness and education has led to a solid foundation for moving into the future of separation anxiety. Part of this future includes a huge demand for more qualified professionals from all over the globe who can work in an individualized way with daily behavior plans and support. Separation anxiety clients are geographically diverse, and dog-training consumers are more willing to work virtually and with technology, to deliver higher-quality personalized services. This session will review the direction in which this fascinating training issue is headed, including the effective use of technology that aids the training team for successful resolution of separation anxiety.
