Why Hire a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer?

Living with separation anxiety is upsetting and stressful for dog and human both, and owners struggling with this condition in their dogs are too often told there’s little that can be done.

CSATs know that isn’t true.

We Understand Dogs With Separation Anxiety And Can Help

Hello. I’m Malena DeMartini. I’ve spent almost two decades specializing in dogs with separation anxiety, working many hundreds of cases, and helping countless guardians and families overcome this devastating condition to get their lives back. My team and I have seen and dealt with every thinkable variation of SA, and we know how to help.

Beating The Odds

You may have been told separation anxiety isn’t treatable, because it isn’t an easy fix. True, treating SA isn’t quick or easy. It is, however, simple, and proper treatment can greatly reduce or resolve your dog’s separation anxiety. You and your dog both deserve that.

Support You Can Count On

Real support
CSATs don’t just understand separation anxiety from the dog’s point of view. We know what it means to live with a dog with SA. Our CSATs are chosen not only for their training skills, but also for their compassion, empathy, and ability to support clients through the SA training process. Many of the CSATs have had separation anxiety dogs themselves.

Peace of mind

Imagine living with a dog who can peacefully enjoy a nap while you’re at work or making a run to the grocery store. It really is possible, and you can’t be in better hands to get there than a CSATs.
