Behavior Programs

Do you need help with your dog’s behavior and just don’t know what to do? Tried to fix the issues yourself or taken your dog to a dog trainer previously? Well I am unlike any other dog trainer when it comes to behavior. Most dog trainers try to fix behaviors with obedience but behavior has to be fixed with addressing behavior not obedience. I specialize in making the behavior of your dog better and balanced for you and your family.

Less commands are within the behavior program because the program focuses on the behavior of your dog. Doing obedience to fix a bad behavior is like covering it up and underneath the behavior is still there to come out anytime such as with aggression.

This page will review some of the unwanted behavior you might be going through with your dog. Review our Behavior Training Programs below to learn more about how we can help you with your dog, and why we guarantee that our training will work for your dog!

Some of the problems I resolve and you might be having:

  • Fears and Anxieties
  • Aggression
  • Dominance
  • House Breaking and Crate Training
  • Barking or Growling at People or Other Dogs

 


 

How my Behavior Programs Work:

Everything you need to reach your goals is included in each of our programs, so you simply choose the program that matches your personal preferences and your needs. This is a true investment into the years that you will have your dog.

All of our training programs focus on development training, resolving unwanted behaviors, building blocks for reliability around distractions and off-leash development, as well as leash training, housebreaking, and crate training for dogs 6 months or older.

Some things our programs include:

When I talk or meet with you, I will tell you all the differences between our programs and you can decide which one sounds perfect to you. To start with, one of the big differences is how long your dog spends with me initially. The longer your dog spends with me, the sooner he or she will get to a certain point in their training (more confident around people, for example), and of course the farther along they are when they first come home and I start training YOU. All of the programs include teaching you, the family, so it’s easy to maintain. You’ll be taught everything you need to know and get lots of ongoing support from us.

And don’t forget, the programs are guaranteed. You don’t have to worry that your dog can’t be trained, that it won’t work, or that you’ll be left with no help if something comes up in the future. We’re always here for you.

Your dog’s stay with me can be anywhere from a week or two depending on your goals and preferences. All of the programs include lessons with you and your dog, and some programs can include lessons at your home as well. Our programs are unlike most board & train type programs, though, so I will tell you all the details when we talk.

All programs use force free dog training, making the puppy wanting and happy to train, developing a solid foundation for a well mannered dog.

I’ll be resolving your dog’s less-than-wonderful habits and behaviors, like jumping, pulling on the leash, stealing stuff on the counters, play biting, not coming, barking, chewing, house breaking issues, and anything else you need.

These are some of the movements/commands I’ll teach your dog so your dog will develop listening focus to you in every situation…
Sit (and stay until released!), Come, Place (to stay on a dog bed until released), Off, Quiet, Drop-it, Leave-it, Let’s Go (loose leash walking), Heel (to stay next to your left foot off-leash as well). This is everything you need to start an great foundation with your dog when he gets older.
