Tracy Krulik

Tracy Krulik with dog EmmaAn honors graduate of the prestigious Academy for Dog Trainers, Tracy Krulik (CTC, CSAT) helps individuals and their pups live harmoniously together. Whether housetraining puppies, teaching dogs to greet people politely rather than jump on them, giving dogs the skills to walk politely on-leash, or working with fearful and aggressive dogs, Tracy uses the latest scientific and humane methods to do so. After helping her own pup, Emma the Beagle, overcome a severe phobia of being alone, Tracy became a certified separation anxiety trainer to help other scared dogs learn to feel safe and happy, whether their people are with them or not. Tracy is the founder and managing editor of — a website that teaches dog behavior and body language. She writes about all-things “dog” for publications including The Bark magazine, The Washington Post, and Alexandria Living magazine.


Tracy offers in-home visits in Northern Virginia, largely in Loudoun County. Please reach out if you live outside the area, and we’ll try to accommodate you.

Remote Separation Anxiety Training:

Is your dog barking and howling when you’re gone? Do your neighbors complain about the noise? Does he pee on the rug or on the couch? Does she chew up the doorframe?

It can be heart wrenching to know your pup is suffering when he or she is alone, and it can also become expensive to pay for doggy daycare and repairs to your home. But there is good news: separation anxiety is treatable. We’ve seen dogs go from melting down when left alone for 10 seconds to napping peacefully when left alone for hours.

To start your separation anxiety training or learn more, please sign up for a free half-hour separation anxiety consultation.

  • An initial remote assessment
