Tess worked with dogs in rescue environments and veterinary clinics before earning her Certificate in Training & Counseling through the Academy for Dog Trainers, where she graduated with honours. She enjoys helping dogs with reactivity, fear and aggression and became particularly interested in separation anxiety after adopting a dog named Alvin with this very challenge. She owns Treat Yourself Dog Training in Vancouver, British Columbia and looks forward to supporting families through the challenges and successes that come with having a dog with separation anxiety.

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.
Sarah had already been training dogs for 14 years when her SA pup Ernie came along, because of him she quickly realised that help was extremely difficult to find. Traditional trainers and behaviourists simply didn’t have the setup or time to help. Separation Anxiety Solutions was born from a need for specialist care for owners like me of dogs with Separation Anxiety. Based in the UK, Sarah’s business is now 100% geared to treating separation and isolation distress by providing the guidance, training and support needed for owners of these very, very special dogs.
Dog aggression and behavior specialist, Sara Scott has been training dogs professionally in the San Francisco Bay Area and worldwide since 2000 and comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience that can only be gained through time and dedication to the art and science of dog behavior and training. She is deeply educated in the dog training and behaviour field and brings her knowledge to application with great insight, grace and compassion for both species, human and dog. Sara had been seeing and treating separation anxiety cases for 20 years, way back when and before we even had access to modern technology such as webcams. Her robust history of treating and resolving separation anxiety cases means you’ll get the results you’re after with minimal headache for both you and your dog. As an advocate for humane dog training techniques, Sara strives to help educate her clients and the greater community on evidence-based dog training practices and has published her writings in both Bay Woof and APDT’s Chronicle of the Dog. “Reach out – I’d love to help you reach your training goals! 🐶”
