Hello! So nice to have you here. My name is Ally Verba and I am a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer that has been helping families all over the world attain their training goals since 2010. I have worked privately with families, instructed hundreds of group classes, as well as helped many shelters all over the country develop and maintain their Behavior Programs.
At one point in my career I found myself at a shelter in which it was all on my shoulders to determine who was "adoptable" and who was "not." This was a very emotional place to be in, and really shifted the way I observed behavior moving forward. Many dogs with the label "Separation Anxiety" were deemed "not adoptable" by the higher powers, and this was a tough pill to swallow. I had taken on Separation Anxiety cases prior to my involvement in the sheltering world and knew that much success could be given to these pups if we had the time and resources available to help them. Sadly there were not enough resources or trainers available to help these pups live their best lives.
At this point I made the decision to devote my entire career to helping pups that struggled with Separation-related problem behaviors. Since embarking on this emotional and very rewarding journey, I have helped hundreds of clients all over the world reach their specific alone time goals!
