I have no opinions on meds - if the experts say use them then I'd likely try them. I sometimes think Trixie, our highly anxious Yorkie would do well to have them.

Have you tried working on relax on a mat? Annie wasn't anxious, per ce, - well, except seperation anxiety- but very very alert. All the time.

I am definitely not suggesting this as an alternative to a behaviourist, (except, didn't Karen Overall literally create the Relaxation protocol???) but as an idea to try while you wait. I know how challenging getting into trainers can be, I can't imagine a behaviourist!
