First and foremost, I hope you, your family, and your friends are safe and well during this sad and scary time. My wish is that when life returns to normal sometime soon, our pups are prepared to be left alone again, so that we can all enjoy happy times together (and apart).
While we can't know for sure how our dogs will behave when the lockdown ends, it is important for us to keep up their alone-time skills up and make sure they do not become hyper-dependent on us now. Not being alone for substantial amounts of time is believed to be a trigger for separation related problems, so better to be safe than sorry.
Whether your dog had separation anxiety before the lockdown or not, whether you are fostering a pup or have recently brought a new dog into your home permanently, these webinars are for you! I'll be adding more webinars in the coming days, so check back for additional dates and times.
