Presented by Malena DeMartini-Price




This webinar is about understanding separation anxiety and the various facets of its treatment ‐ from client support to protocols, technology and a bit about medication. Separation Anxiety is a  behavior disorder that for so long has plagued trainers, behaviorists, owners and veterinarians as being truly problematic in treatment and often unfixable.

Through this webinar Malena would like you to become less afraid to take on these cases because they are quite treatable and the owners of these dogs truly need your help. The treatment is not complex; it is simply in the details that we have often failed to get the exact order of things correct to get the results needed.

Learning Objectives

  • To learn how to effectively counsel and motivate separation anxiety clients and keep them committed 
  • To understand how to create an effective separation anxiety protocol for maximum efficiency 
  • To have a view into the very important technology and tools that are so useful in accelerating separation anxiety training 
  • To have a brushstroke look at the holistic supplements and medications that can be useful in separation anxiety treatment
