Alleviating Dog Separation Anxiety

Well Done Charlie is a private dog training company based on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. We specialize in dog separation anxiety. As folks return to work in offices and businesses following the pandemic, many of our dogs are struggling to adapt. Some may develop separation anxiety. Others may already have had separation anxiety or other alone-time related behaviors that are unrelated to the pandemic.

With patient, skilled training your dog can learn to be comfortable and relaxed being alone, and you can regain your life, free from the distress, guilt and worry associated with leaving your dog alone. Dogs with separation anxiety require specialized training and we can help. There is a path forward!


Our Services

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety is a heartbreaking condition that causes distress to dogs and owners alike. Our trainer is a certified separation anxiety trainer and can help.


We teach your dog the obedience skills they need to become well-mannered, safe citizens of your household while strengthening your bond and having fun.

Remote Training

Your pup needs training but the Covid-19 outbreak makes in-home training tricky. Not to worry. We work with you remotely no matter where you are via video platforms.

Puppy Training

We offer puppy training and socialization to ensure your ball of fluff grows up to become a happy adult who enjoys new situations. The clock is ticking so let’s get started.

Fear & Aggression

Fear and aggression are frequently two sides of the same coin. We work to change your dog’s emotional response to the thing that he finds scary and thus modify his behavior.

Behavior Solutions

Dogs come into our lives pre-programmed to bark, dig, chew, bark and chase critters. We can help give your dog fun outlets for his unwanted behavior so it works for everyone.

What People Say About Us

Toni has been a real godsend helping me with my dog’s separation anxiety. She has been so supportive and reassuring, and with her wonderful, kind nature and expertise, along with her dedication we achieved some really great results, and more importantly she made me feel much calmer to be able to cope with this and a few other challenges I am facing with my dog. She went the extra mile to help me so I cannot thank her enough!

B. Maria
We rescued a dog from Korea with a very difficult personality, including severe resource-guarding.  He had bitten a number of people including myself and had been relinquished twice to our organization.  Under Toni’s guidance he’s completely turned himself around. I recommend her to our adopters who need help with their dogs and they have all told me they are extremely happy.
Regina Paik, Band For Animals Rescue

After a horrific experience with an uncertified trainer we engaged Toni and are over the moon with the growth we have seen in Habibi, our 3-year-old maltipoo. Toni is compassionate, loving, reliable, punctual, professional, patient, and seemingly a miracle worker. Words can not adequately express how happy we are that Habibi is now expressing his calm, playful and loving nature with us.

When I first started looking for a fur-baby I was extremely uncertain. Enter Toni, who listened to my concerns and guided me to the perfect dog. Toni quickly taught Maple the basics and to come when called and helped us tame her chewing habits. Throughout our work, Toni demonstrated an immense amount of patience for Maple and for us! We can’t thank her enough for the joy she has brought us.

Linda & Maple

Toni is absolutely brilliant! She has developed such and amazing connection with our dog, Wallace, and with us as a family. Our five- year old rescue mutt needed training with basic commands as well as not begging for food. Toni’s sessions were extremely effective and she gave us the tools to continue training by ourselves. She showed that we us we can raise our pup in a home with no scolding or guilt.

Chelsea & Wally

When I adopted Tilly I was overwhelmed and had no idea how to deal with a dog that was fearful. Toni came to our rescue! She was professional and patient with both of us. She helped Tilly learn to overcome her fears and Tilly grew to love her training sessions! Toni miraculously helped Tilly and I strengthen our bond and got us off on the right footing toward a happy life together. Thank you, Toni!
