You’ve not likely heard a radio interview so in-depth regarding separation anxiety in dogs. Malena DeMartini-Price, CTC created a certification for dog trainers and behavior consultants to help pet parents with dogs with separation anxiety using science-based methods and she is the author of Separation Anxiety in Dogs: Next Generation Treatment Protocols and Practices

We first off discuss how you know the dog really has separation anxiety. 

Lots of adoptions because of the pandemic. So, is there a link between adopting a dog and then that dog you adopt having separation anxiety?

Martini-Price offers details on what to do about separation anxiety, including behavior modification and suggests pharmaceuticals might be perfectly appropriate to make it possible for the dog to learn and therefore the behavior modification to succeed. 

TreeTime Petapalooza

It’s a Petapalooza at Treetime Christmas Creations on Pepper Road in Lake Barrington.

Treetime and the mere word means Christmas – this is a Chicago area tradition.

Steve will be there on Saturday, November 13, 1 to 3pm.  He will answer your pet behavior questions (dog and cats too), and his dog Hazel can even offer pawtographs.

  • Pet photos: Bring your pet to pose for a holiday photo with Mr. and Mrs. Claus with a donation to A Heart For Animals, a no-kill non-profit rescue based in Huntley. Pet photos will be taken inside Treetime from noon to 4pm.
  • Shop the Haute Diggity Dog Trunk Show: Haute Diggity Dog is the original designer parody plush dog toy company. 

Treetime is at 22102 N. Pepper Road in Lake Barrington and is open weekends from 9am to 5pm.
