We offer in-depth behavior consultations and training for difficult issues.
Behaviors we can address in a Consultation:
Barking & lunging at other dogs
Barking & lunging at people
Guarding Food or Toys
Fearful / Shy behavior
How does it work? Prior to the consultation, you will be sent a behavior history questionnaire to fill out. In order to get to the bottom of your dog's behavior issue - we need to know the history of the problem, along with many other factors that affect behavior.
At the consultation, we will spend the first hour reviewing the history and discussing the issues in depth. Once our trainer has a thorough understanding of what's going on - she will develop a custom training plan to address the problem and start hands-on training immediately. You will be instructed on how to set your dog up to succeed! Exercises and strategies to help your dog will be demonstrated and practiced by everyone - so you leave the consultation with a plan in place.
After the consultation, you will receive a written report - detailing the topics covered in the consultation, and a summary of the training plan, management & safety strategies, and tips for practicing new skills. Follow-up sessions may be scheduled to provide additional training with you and your dog.
