Dog aggression is a normal behavior and is usually based on fear. But when aggressive behavior starts to interfere with the relationship between the dog and the owner, other people, or other animals then it becomes problem that has to be addressed. Often when this happens the initial issues were overlooked as cute or simply ignored. Most dogs with behavior problems escalate their behaviors because they were not corrected or the behavior was addressed incorrectly.
There could be many underlying issues causing your dog's aggressive/reactive behavior. Under-socialization when your dog was very young, or possibly a traumatic event could cause such behavior. Unfortunately in most cases aggression escalates as the dog ages. While it may be natural to make excuses for your dog's behavior, all dogs are capable of causing serious harm. All dogs need obedience because it builds their confidence. Obedience is a MUST for nervous or aggressive dogs. Obedience gives the owner and the dog confidence to face the world together. The sooner you get help for your dogs aggression the quicker your dog can start to live a happy, healthy, more harmonious life with you and the rest of the world.
We will start out by addressing the problem correctly with a private one on one evaluation. Truly aggressive dogs are only managed never cured. We will discuss management strategies while we are working with you and your dog so everyone is safe and your dog is not practicing his or her aggressive behavior. I have trained many aggressive dogs with dog-to-dog aggression, dog to human aggression, food aggression and many other not so nice behavioral issues. I am confident that I can help your dog see the world in a much better way through training.
Private one-on-one sessions are available at our location or at your location. Save when you buy 3 or more sessions!
One-on-one training with an experienced trainer includes:
• House breaking/Potty training advice
• Exercises for positive behavior
• Dog walking practice
• Obedience commands
All training techniques are easy to follow and very effective.
For an additional fee, we can come to your home or business.
Before we accept a dog for training, we need to do an evaluation. You have the option to bring your dog in for the evaluation or we can assess your dog by phone. Phone evaluation requires full information about your dog before the phone call. I'll give you a fixed cost, let you know what your involvement will be, as well as ours. Since we are a personalized service we will fit you into our schedules at your convenience.
We believe the best place to start is with individual lessons before group classes. Once your dog has mastered basic command's, the next step is mastering the commands with distractions. Group Classes are small and individualized. Attending group classes encourages your dog's positive behavior through all aspects of their life. These classes are geared to provide a distracting environment for the purpose of practice to achieve their training goals. Class dates could be postponed due to weather or holidays. If our location or dates do not suit you, we can set up classes in your area with a two-dog minimum. Please contact us for more details.
We are setting up classes now! Early Morning or Late Evening class times are available. CONTACT US NOW FOR CLASS SCHEDULES!
Dogs crave obedience. They know what is expected of them and in learning what is expected of them they are mentally stimulated. Obediences creates a happy dog and owner. Basic Dog Obedience Training is built from six basic commands; Sit, Down, Stay, Come, Heel, and Wait. Building these key commands along with Repetition, Consistency and Love will create a bond like no other between you and your dog.
