Dealing with Separation Anxiety in Pets
When? Saturday 25th July, 16:00 - 16:45
Where? Zoom

In many ways lockdown has been a godsend for our pets with constant companionship, mouths to feed, legs to walk and so on. But now that many of us are returning to work and school, our pets are facing time on their own…and for any pets that joined the household since March 2020, this is probably for the first time. How are you coping? How are they coping?

Join us for an online webinar with Veterinary Nurse Caroline Bellhouse to discover strategies to help fill our dog’s time and tummy in fun, positive ways while we return – with far less guilt -to our lives outside the home.

The presentation will cover:

  • How a dog thinks
  • Practical tips and strategies
  • How to reduce your guilt at leaving your dog alone
  • How to reduce or eliminate your fear of coming home to a frenzied and destructive dog

There will be a question and answer session at the end.
