Does your dog have a few bad habits you could live without?
Does she lunge at other dogs when all you want is to take a polite, leisurely walk? Are you struggling with persistent housebreaking issues, puppy nipping, digging, barking, or jumping on visitors? Is she anxious when you go to work? Having difficulty getting along with other dogs in the house? For those kinds of problem areas, Behavior Modification is what you need.
Behavior modification is not the same as Obedience Training.
Here is how to get started:
- Check my service map to ensure you are in our service area. If not, I can refer you to a talented trainer in your area
- Schedule a training session to get started. New clients, be sure to fill out the new behavior modification client form. I may need to call or email for clarification so the form will prompt you for the best way for me to reach you.
While teaching your dog Obedience has amazing benefits, it is Behavior Modification that really causes a dog to alter behaviors that you are having difficulty living with.
We work carefully with your dog using the latest techniques. Your dog will learn new ways to think clearly, relax under pressure and make good decisions. Like learning to ski, or learning a new language, it takes time. But it is a beautiful thing to watch your dog become more capable, confident and well-mannered.
Follow-up sessions are often necessary in the case of fearfulness, anxiety or aggression. Follow-ups are one hour, and cost $95. While some problems are resolved within our first session, more serious, deep-seated issues often take more. So I will remain in your corner with follow up visits, email and phone support.
Training costs time and money, but that investment really pays off when you have a relationship with your dog you can truly enjoy!
