Dog Behavior Issues

Experience a Better Life with Your Dog:

Some of you are visiting this page because your lovable beast just chewed up your brand new pair of $400.00 shoes, while some of you, in all seriousness, are having issues with your dog that, if not corrected, could lead to extreme repercussions.

For those who need something a bit more prescriptive and specialized, I provide a variety of services to address everything from "off-the-hook" dangerous, to the dog that's simply annoying the neighbors.

The severity and the nature of the issues, as well as your budget and time restraints will determine how we will approach the solutions. It may be a common issue that can be addressed in a class setting or it may be a severe issue we'll need to manage in your home or through a variety of training options. Either way, we'll get to the root of the problem so we can find the solution and devise a course of action.

 


Dog Training: Basic Obedience Classes

If your behavior issues are minimal,  then we may be able to address them in a class setting. Often times, other dogs and handlers can assist in the training process by offering examples of correct behavior, handling techniques or proper obedience. If the behavior issue is bothersome but mild, like jumping, leash pulling or nipping, we can likely address these problem in a group class.

Private Lessons and Behavior Consultations

Private lessons are a great way to train your dog. Maybe your dog has behavior issues or maybe a classroom environment isn't for you. Maybe you just prefer to train at home. There are definitely benefits to training in your house, yard, car, neighborhood, local park, pet store, etc. as they are all places that you and your dog experience on a daily basis.  Private lessons can deal with behavior issues in a very focused way that simply is not possible in a group class.  The advantage of 1:1 attention can really turbo charge your dog's response to the training.  Once your dog is ready, we can move your dog to group classes or do private training in tandem with group classes. Any problem, any breed, any age!
