As the title suggests, this conference will reveal the not commonly believed fact that resolution of separation anxiety is indeed truly possible.

Separation anxiety wreaks havoc on dog and guardian alike. The suffering the dog endures is apparent in every heart-wrenching howl, yet we cannot forget about the deep worry and frustration that the guardians experience as well. Dogs are destroying their homes which become quite costly to repair, landlords are issuing final warnings concerning the barking problems, and tension runs high when one more vet bill rolls in after the dog has hurt himself in yet another escape attempt. These are all too familiar scenarios and there are many others.

It is estimated that at least 17% of the dogs in the United States suffer from separation anxiety and we are seeing newer figures that indicate this number is likely an underestimation. Separation anxiety is not easy to resolve but it is simple in many ways, and help is at hand for trainers and guardians.

Advances in technology, new ways of thinking about support, and a structured approach to creating separation anxiety plans have turned a nearly impossible task into a doable one with successful resolution of even the most severe separation anxiety cases being attainable.

Malena DeMartini, CTC, CDBC, is renowned in the dog training world for her work on canine separation anxiety (SA) disorder. Her book, Treating Separation Anxiety in Dogs, has helped countless numbers of dogs and her recent online course for guardians called Mission: POSSIBLE is now out and should prove to be an invaluable resource in the industry. In addition to writing and lecturing worldwide, Malena oversees a team of top SA trainers and runs an internationally accessible certification program for accomplished dog professionals looking to hone their skills. Malena is passionate about furthering education in this field through science-based methods and just happens to be in the process of collaborating on an intensive study with a leading University to help further advance SA knowledge in the industry.
