Canine Behavior | Professional Dog Training
Dogs… aren’t they the best?
They are happy to see us when we get home, are willing to accompany us wherever we go, eat our shoes, steal the remote, wait……what? While there are some dogs out there who are diamonds in the rough, most need a bit of polish to truly shine. That’s what we’re here for!
Help for Dog Behavior Problems
If you have a dog with behavioral issues, please reach out to schedule an initial consultation! During this consultation, there are three goals that we will accomplish:
Gather a thorough history
Put together a customized management plan
Determine what our behavior modification (training) plan will be
Management and training go hand-in-hand. We can't be successful in modifying the vast majority of problem behaviors without a modicum of management present. The reason for this is that management is what prevents the dog from practicing problem behaviors as much as humanly possible. If we conduct a training session, make progress, then allow the dog to practice the problem behaviors multiple times between training sessions, then we're taking two steps forward, three steps back. We're essentially spinning our wheels. Once we have a solid management plan in place, we can then discuss behavior modification.
When we discuss the behavior modification plan during the initial consultation, we will set clear, concise training goals, prioritize those goals, then determine how much time we need to get clients well on their way to meeting those goals.
Initial consultations are conducted remotely via Zoom. Clients will receive a recording of the consultation, a detailed post-meeting write up, and customized plans for you to choose from. The cost of the initial consultation is $100. At the time of booking, a $50 non-refundable deposit will be due. The remaining $50 of the initial consultation amount will be due the day of the session itself.
