I have over ten years’ experience providing dog training and behavior modification solutions for clients and students. In addition to separation anxiety, I have experience with fearful dogs, anxiety in dogs, basic foundation behaviors, and more. I know how dogs learn and how the combination of anxiety, history, and environment impacts that learning. I love providing individualized training plans and solutions that work for dogs and for their families. I’m based in the Washington, DC area but I can work online with people in any location.

Hi! I am Caroline, a dog behaviourist from Belgium. Since I struggled myself with solving the SA of my puppy, I know how hard it is to live with a dog struggling to be left alone. I decided to become a SA pro trainer to be able to help other people overcome seperation anxiety of their dogs. Besides separation anxiety, I also help with other behavioural issues such as anxiety related problems, aggression, reactivity and problems between dogs and small children.
