Rapid Response Course on Separation Anxiety, March 26th / 27th

Separation anxiety is the cause of an increasing number of canine behaviour problems such as excessive barking, howling, destructiveness and even self-mutilation when dogs are left on their own.

It is one of the biggest problems for owners and a major cause of relationships breaking down between humans and dogs, all too often resulting in dogs being rehomed through the rescue system, or even ending up euthanased. This perplexing problem, and its solutions, was the subject of the fascinating course we recently attended: Colin Tennant’s Rapid Response Separation Anxiety weekend seminar on March 26th – 27th, held at the Old Palace Lodge Hotel in Dunstable.

Having attended a great variety of canine behaviour courses and seminars, we found this one exceptional. Colin Tennant’s extensive knowledge, gained over many years of practical canine behaviour work, was imparted in a structured and clear way using the latest technologies of DVD and film combined with Mr Tennant’s inimitable, incisive and dynamic lecturing style. He was ably assisted by his CFBA colleague Ross McCarthy. Students came away feeling they had learned something of great value, knowledge that could be put straight into practice rather than mere classroom theory. In all, a highly beneficial weekend that we would recommend to anyone with a serious interest in canine behaviour.
