Well Done Charlie Dog Training

Separation Anxiety

If you have a dog who cries, barks, paces, drools, eliminates, destroys things or hurts themself when left alone, you are no doubt at your wit's end. Separation anxiety is so painful to witness and experience. Rest assured, there is hope, and you have come to the right place.


We Can Help

Separation anxiety is a heartbreaking panic disorder that can shatter the quality of life of both dog and owner.  It affects millions of dogs in the United States so if you think you’re alone, you’re most certainly not.

Our trainer, Toni Clarke, is a Certified Separation Anxiety trainer (CSAT) and a Certified Separation Anxiety Pro Trainer (Cert. SAPro). This means she has specialized education and expertise in working with these very often complex cases. 

How We Work

Believe it or not, separation anxiety work is done remotely. That's because when the trainer coaches from a distance, the  training set-up mimics real life absences, which is vital for progress.

We work using easy to use video chat platforms such as Zoom and FaceTime. Not tech-savvy? We will guide you through the set-up. All you need is a computer or mobile phone and access to the internet.

There is hope!

There is a vast array of misinformation out in the ether about what separation anxiety is and how to make the behavioral manifestations improve. We use the most studied, up-to-date techniques to work with your pup to desensitize them to their fear, much as we might desensitize a human with a phobia about spiders. The devil is very much in the details as to whether a protocol is successful, so put yourself in the hands of a separation anxiety specialist. Learn more about this condition and the techniques used to alleviate it.

Prepare to Take Back Your Life


We schedule an initial 90-minute consultation and assessment to analyze your dog's behavior and and outline the techniques we would use to help you and your path to freedom: $150.00.

The Technique

We use the gold standard technique of systematic desensitization to teach your dog that being alone is not the terrifying situation he things it is, but one in which he can relax.


I work with you every day, 5 days a week, creating and adjusting the plan as we move forward and acting as you and your dog's champion, cheerleader and sounding board throughout.
