Frequently Asked Questions

 

How Does Remote Training Work? 

Training for separation anxiety involves having your dog become accustomed to spending time alone, making it a perfect fit for remote training. After all, if the trainer came to your home, then your dog wouldn't actually be alone! We'll use web cameras or your computer, tablet, or phone to keep track of how your dog is feeling during a training session. 

Can I Leave My Dog Alone During the Training Process?

Because the training relies on making sure your dog is never anxious, you can only leave your dog alone during specific training sessions. At the beginning of training, we will work to have your dog get accustomed to your preparations to leave, and may not leave your dog alone at all. There are several different ways to arrange for your dog to not be left alone during training. We'll be happy to discuss those with you and help you brainstorm solutions that work for your household.

 

How Long Does Training Take?

Training is particular to each dog, so there is no way to predict how long it will take for your dog to feel comfortable alone. Separation Anxiety is an anxiety disorder, so it's important to keep your dog's well-being at the heart of training. Your commitment to your dog and your ability to complete homework assignments factor into the amount of time for training to take hold.
