Behavior Modification

"Pet Manners" or "Behavior Modification", what's the difference?

"Pet Manners" training is sometimes also described as "dog obedience" training. Dogs are taught to reliably respond to cues like sit, down, come when called, walk nicely on leash, greet visitors politely, etc.

In "Behavior Modification" we deal with anxious, fearful and/or aggressive dogs. We work on changing their behavior and emotional state, so they learn to stay calm and focused in situations that previously elicited a fearful or aggressive reaction.

"One-on-One BEHAVIOR program"

Our customized "One-on-One BEHAVIOR" program is the solution, if

  • Your dog barks and lunges at people or other dogs
  • Your dog growls at you when you want to take something out of his mouth
  • Your dog is afraid of men or shies away when children want to pet him
  • Your dog gets worried when you take her to new places or hears a loud noise
  • Your dog gets upset when you leave him home alone

We will work with you and your dog and develop a protocol specifically for you and your family, without coercion or force.
