Don't Leave Me! How to Help Your Dog With Separation Anxiety.

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015 at 7:00 pm - Animal Hospital of North Asheville Education Room

Does your dog destroy items and eliminate when you leave the house? Howl for hours the moment you step out the door to go to work? Become anxious at just the sight of you picking up your purse?

Join Tristan Rehner, MS, CPDT-KA of Pet Behavior Aid for this free Behavior Help Session to learn how to teach your dog to relax when you leave the house.

The mission of Pet Behavior Aid, a non-profit organization, is to increase the retention of companion animals in their homes in Asheville and Western NC through education and training programs for people who have dogs or cats, animal shelter and rescue workers, and the general community.

These Help Sessions are for people only, so please leave your pet at home. Our goal is to teach you what you need to know to help your pet. These Help Sessions are free to the public on a first come, first seated basis. Please be aware that Animal Hospital of North Asheville will be seeing patients while the Help Session is in progress, so some of our parking will be reserved for the families of patients needing care.
