Hey there, I’m Julie Naismith.

A behavior science geek, mountain bike enthusiast, lover of rainbows, and globally respected dog trainer.

I know exactly how you feel right now. My dog, Percy, used to have terrible separation anxiety. The effect it had on my life was massive. His anxiety became my own, last-minute plans were a nightmare, and I ached with guilt every time I had to leave him at home even just to run to the store. Worst of all, I couldn’t find a real, reliable way to help Percy. I wasn’t sure how much longer I could live like this, so I became determined to find a solution.

The truth is that, like us, dogs come with their own quirks, phobias, and genetic predispositions. So I’m happy to tell you that, no, you did not cause your dog’s separation anxiety, nor do you need to let them just “cry it out.” Whoever tells you otherwise is just plain wrong.

But there is a way to help your dog be more comfortable while you’re away and better yet, it’s rooted in the science behind dog behavior. I use real evidence to inform my methods and implement them in kind, humane ways.

After reading this easy-to-digest free guide, you’ll breathe a sigh of relief because you’ll understand, finally, that you didn't cause your dog’s separation anxiety – but more important, you’ll know what to stop doing and what to start doing.
