Below are just some of the webinars available to our members or can be purchased individually For more information on our courses and membership please visit our shopfront --------------- Home alone: the diagnosis and treatment of canine separation anxiety Valerie Jonckheer-Sheehy Separation anxiety is a prevalent problem, affecting 14-29% of all dogs.  Dogs with separation anxiety exhibit signs of anxiety, fear, or panic, including excessive vocalisation, destruction, and house soiling. This typically occurs when the dog doesn’t have physical access (when the dog’s owners are out of the house) but it can also occur when the owners are home but the dog cannot reach them.  Separation anxiety is a serious behavioural issue, adversely affecting the quality of life of the dog and his owners. It is frequently mis- or under diagnosed making it a huge canine welfare concern. --------------- Scary sounds: the diagnosis and treatment of canine noise phobias Valerie Jonckheer-Sheehy Firework season is approaching fast. Are you inundated with questions from clients with dogs who are terrified of the sound of fireworks being let off? Year in, year out veterinarians are overwhelmed by questions from frantic dog owners as to what to do with their overly anxious pets. Vets are also overwhelmed by the array of different techniques and products that can supposedly help to ameliorate this condition. During this webinar, Behaviour Vet, Valerie Jonckheer-Sheehy will guide veterinarians as to how they can diagnose and treat patients suffering from this condition. Correct diagnosis is essential as not all dogs are as scared as they may seem to be at first glance and those that appear “ok” may not be. However, dogs that are truly affected by this condition are stressed and their welfare is compromised. They must be treated to safeguard their wellbeing. Furthermore, dogs suffering from a noise phobia...
