Separation Anxiety Foundations
A virtual course on treating separation anxiety in dogs.
Do you feel guilty every time you leave your dog alone? Tired of coming home to destroyed furniture or hearing neighbors complain about constant barking? We understand how difficult it can be to watch your dog suffer from separation anxiety — but there is hope!
We Can Help.
Get personalized support from Cathy Madson, a certified canine behavior consultant, in our Separation Anxiety Foundations virtual course.
Our approach is rooted in compassion and positive reinforcement, which means we never use punishment or force to address your dog's anxiety. Instead, you'll learn how to create a safe and supportive environment for your dog and get the tools you need to help them feel confident and relaxed when you're away.

What Students Have to Say...
"I like the ability to have someone as knowledgable as Cathy at my fingertips even though we live across the country from each other. The resources she provides in the way of reading material and videos to watch are so helpful. Cathy is so responsive to emails and texts (when needed) that I don't have to wait long to get feedback and to tweak my next set of homework. I LOVE that the sessions are recorded so I can review it if I need to or share it with my husband who can't participate."
"It's so accessible and easy. And it's truly like having a dog trainer right in my home. If a friend was having dog troubles, I would say just do it. The support and knowledge will change your dog's life!"
"Cathy is wonderful. She listens, ask questions, and then helps find me and my husband find creative solutions that work for us and our pup. I am so encouraged at the progress we have made in just a few sessions. Learning to be a more mindful human within our dog training & daily habits has significantly helped the relationship between us and our pup. A family member recently commented that our dog seems so much happier since we started training. (That’s saying something since she’s already a happy Golden Retriever!)"
