About Julie

Hi there! I'm Julie Naismith – author, trainer, tutor, and all round separation anxiety geek. But more importantly, I'm mum to Percy. 


Training Percy to overcome his separation anxiety was life-changing. The effect was so positive in fact, that I knew it was my purpose to bring this relief to the countless other people and pups who had the same struggles.


These days I help owners and trainers around the world get dogs over separation anxiety. My goal is to give anxious dogs, and their pet parents, a lifetime of freedom and happiness together. 

I'll be sharing my top insider tips including:

Tip #1: What we do if we suspect frustration not fear

Some dogs are scared of being alone. Some are just cross that they've been left. How do you determine which is which and what can you do about either? 

Tip #2: How we make training go as quickly as it can for a learner

Where should you put your effort and what can you do to make sure training is as swift as it can be?

Tip #3: How the science of human behaviour change can help us

Separation anxiety recovery is a mental battle–for us humans! We'll look at how we can make the process something we are more likely to stick with
