Hi there! I had a dog with separation anxiety myself and know how hard it can be. Because of her, I wanted to know more about this so I could help other people to help their dog overcome their separation anxiety. It’s important to me that you feel safe with me to share all your doubts and questions. I want you to understand what’s going on so you can help your dog the best way and be on the same team. Aside from SA cases, I help all kinds of people, dogs and cats with a wide variety of struggles. I work a lot with dogs that were adopted from abroad and expecting families. Working force-free and fear-free training is a no-brainer for me. I want you and your pet to understand each other and have the happiest life together. Tackling separation anxiety can be overwhelming and you have to do it yourself, but with me by your side, you don’t have to do it alone. Feel free to contact me for a non-binding introductory meeting.

Sabine Pawlig

My journey as a dog trainer & canine behaviourist started in 2005 with starting my own dog walking, pet, and horse care company, ‘Pawlig’s Pet Care’. Over the past 7 years, I have seen so many dogs struggle in day-to-day life with behavioural issues such as reactivity, fear, and anxiety. It really inspired me to help them and their pet parents using kind, positive, and effective training methods and I now specialise in offering 121 bespoke training programmes for puppies and dogs. We have two dogs, three cats, and a horse. One of our own dogs suffers from separation anxiety, so I can relate to the emotional drain and restrictions this means for dog and pet parents alike. As an SA Pro Trainer, I am now able to help more dogs who struggle to cope when left alone and pet parents to get their lives and freedom back. Although I am based in the UK, I am a native German. I offer consultations in English and German and am able to work with clients anywhere in the world as all our sessions take place via video link in the comfort of your own home.
