Help!!! I'm here and aloooooone!

We are so grateful to everyone who helps our homeless dog population in the shelter and rescue world. It’s often a thankless task, and sadly, dogs who suffer from separation anxiety within that population present a number of challenges which can be difficult to address.

In this free mini-course, Marlena DeMartini presents two webinars. In the first video, she discusses separation anxiety diagnostics in the shelter environment. She explores strategies to help and methods that don’t, but also looks at how to deploy separation anxiety help within an organization, and addresses the challenges that providing adoption counseling can bring.

In video two, Malena moves on to addressing separation anxiety in newly adopted dogs. The joy of bringing home a new-to-you dog is incredible, but what if they are showing signs of separation anxiety? Malena is here to help!

These videos are on demand now with two additional recordings - an interview to kick off the mini-course and a student Q&A Session with Malena, both hosted by me (Grisha Stewart). Recorded March, 2022.

  • Suitable for all but especially for pet owners, shelter workers, dog trainers, and behaviorists with rescue dogs or puppies.

  • Learn what separation anxiety looks like, and understand its cause.

  • Explore the most efficient and effective ways to work on this behavior, and where to go for help and support.

  • Understand the most common challenges in rescue for separation anxiety dogs.

  • Deep dive into separation anxiety diagnostics in the shelter.

  • Assess strategies that help and methods that don’t.

  • Help newly adopted dogs acclimate to separation.

  • This webinar is specific to separation anxiety for shelter dogs and new-to-you dogs. If you're looking for step-by-step separation anxiety advice, be sure to check out our general Separation Anxiety webinar with Terrie Hayward.

  • The Live Q&A session will be recorded to watch back at a time that suits you.

  • Have you considered a Diamond membership? Diamond All Access Pass gets you into all of our classes. It's a super value!

Malena is here to help you understand what to do about shelter & rescue dogs with separation anxiety.
