Does separation anxiety training seem unclear and fuzzy right now?

You keep hearing about separation anxiety work, but you’re confused about what it involves, and maybe even a little wary. You feel curious, but also feel like you have a knowledge gap.

If only you knew what the cases involved, you might see separation anxiety as work you’d like to do.

Instead separation anxiety inquiries are hot potatoes that you immediately need to refer out.

Knowing what goes on with these cases is an itch you’d like to scratch.

Helping a family get their dog over separation anxiety, is the absolute best feeling. I’d love you to get a taste of this too.


Hi there! I'm Julie Naismith – author of the bestselling Be Right Back! series of books, host of top-rated podcast, creator of the unique separation anxiety training app, and director of the SA Pro Training Program.

I’ve taught hundreds of trainers how to resolve separation anxiety cases, even those who thought separation anxiety work would never be for them.

If you feel like you have no idea how a separation anxiety case is structured, you are not alone. It’s one of the most common comments that students applying to become one of my Certified Separation Anxiety Pros makes: “I’m just not sure where to start.”

As I always remind them, while the science of how we change a dog’s emotion is fixed across any fear, the process we apply to dogs with separation anxiety is different, but not so different that you can learn how.

Separation anxiety work, when done right, is rewarding, life-changing, and intellectually stimulating.

But do it wrong, and not only do we risk never helping an owner get their lives back, but we risk making their dog worse (like so much of the advice that’s out there in the internet does).

That’s why I’m so passionate about getting it right.

And so, because I want you to see it the way I do, I’m lifting the curtain and giving you access to a live case, so that you can see why I – and now so many of my certified trainers – are so passionate about this work.

That's why I'd like to invite you to join me for my Live Shadowing Program, stating October 19th, 2022.
