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.
