We re-homed Milo at 5 months old. He wasn’t a rescue but his owner couldn’t care for him any longer and we were lucky enough to get this nutty skinny blue boy.
Since we got him home that day, he was never happy to be alone. He would howl, bark and stand in the hallway staring at the door until we came home. We were lucky that he didn’t mess or destroy the house but he was clearly very distressed.
We adopted Flo, an ex-racing greyhound, direct from racing kennels when she was nearly 3. We were aware that greyhounds can be prone to separation anxiety so from day 1 we followed the usual advice. Despite our best efforts, it was soon clear that Flo had separation anxiety. We struggled to find someone who was able to help us but the situation quickly became very stressful for the whole family.
I am passionate about helping dogs and their owners get over this terrible condition. So much so that I have made treating separation cases my speciality and am a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer. Using modern, scientific and up to date methods I get true insight into how you and your dog are progressing and can keep you motivated and on track throughout the training process until the problem has been resolved to everyone’s satisfaction.
Above all thank you for being there for us when we were experiencing very difficult times with Reggie and thank you for cheering us on and giving us hope to persevere and not to give up.
I really thought this would never happen and its true that it took time and hard work but Ingrid’s enthusiasm, support and expertise kept us going. It was like having my own personal trainer! She was with us every step of the way until finally our little Alfie can be left at home and our new sofa is safe from being ripped to shreds.
