Behavior Modification

Behavioral challenges can be overwhelming for any dog owner.  Even if the behavior is mild, behavior that compromises the quality of life for the dog or owner is an indicator that help is needed.  The importance of seeking professional guidance from a certified humane behavior consultant is crucial in identifying root problems, and to create a safe and effective lesson plan.

Behavioral challenge areas we work with:

  • Aggression with dogs or people
  • Reactivity with people or dogs
  • Destructive behaviors
  • Separation anxiety
  • Obsessive/compulsive behaviors
  • Excessive barking
  • Marking
  • Fear
  • Anxieties

Our behavior modification lessons can be scheduled at your home or at our location.  Each behavior modification lesson begins with a one-time 2 hour behavior consultation.  Once the consultation is complete, we can help you decide if continued behavior modification lessons are needed, and which packages can support your training goals.

Lessons include training instruction, educational literature, clickers (as needed), behavioral reports, homework, and unlimited phone and email support.
