Hi, I’m Julie and I help you and your dog overcome separation anxiety so that you can both get your lives back on track
I'm a specialist separation anxiety training and behaviour consultant, and author of the separation anxiety training guide, Be Right Back!
When my dog Percy – the little guy in the picture – developed separation anxiety I became a woman on a mission – determined to cut through the tons of incorrect advice to find how to fix it.
Having successfully fixed Percy's separation anxiety I decided I wanted to help other owners get their dogs over separation anxiety.
I apprenticed with the world’s leading force-free, evidence-based trainer, Jean Donaldson. And graduated with Honors from Jean’s Academy for Dog Trainers. I’m also a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer having studied with leading expert Malena Demartini’s separation anxiety program.
Before I became a separation anxiety coach, I was a people coach. Now I combine my people coaching skills with my passion for separation anxiety training.
This makes me different from other trainers and behaviourists.
With me, you’re not just working with a dog trainer. You’re working with someone who knows how to get you and your dog over separation anxiety.
You're also working with someone who's been in your shoes. And who knows all about separation anxiety struggles.
Today, I work with hundreds of separation anxiety cases, via my membership club Separation Anxiety Heroes™. On top of that, I help thousands of owners in my Facebook Group Support Group. So if you’re looking for someone who knows their separation anxiety onions, here I am!
I love dogs so much that in my spare time I’m on the Board of Directors of my local SPCA. I also run classes for them and advise on training and behaviour issues.
I’m lucky enough to live in the Canadian Rockies (fortunately, I like cold) with my husband, my recovered separation-phobic dog, Percy, Percy’s sister India, and Tex the rescue from Houston, Texas.
It can be hard to stay the course with separation anxiety training (I know – I’ve been there). But I’m here to get you through it.
Every step of the way.
