Separation Anxiety Workshop
August 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Does your dog pace when you start getting ready to leave? Has she remodeled your house while you were gone? Separation anxiety is a common phrase used to describe dog behavior when left alone, but it might surprise you to learn that not all destructive behavior falls into this category. Maybe your dog is displaying symptoms of separation anxiety, or is it simply boredom? How do you tell the difference? Knowing the difference is critical, because fixing the problem depends on understanding the cause. In this session we’ll talk about what separation anxiety is… and is not. We’ll also discuss ways to help dogs who are having trouble being left alone, whatever the cause.
The workshop will be held in the shelter’s Community Education Room on Monday, August 12th, from 6:00 PM to about 7:00 PM with a Q&A session following the presentation.
This event is for humans only, so please leave your pets at home.
The workshop is free, but monetary donations or items from the shelter’s wish list are greatly appreciated!
This workshop is sponsored by Pet Partners, a partnership between the Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic and the Humane Society of Jefferson County.
