Behavioral Training & Assessments 

360 analysis tailored for your dog
Behavior training usually begins with findng your dogs distance of reactivity and management. Management allows us to enter a triggering environment with your dog under threshold, and work on stimulus's that you wouldn't normally be able to tackle. Management looks like walking your dog through a situation at an apppropriate distance, communicating and rewarding them every step of the way. 

The key to behavior training is to always have your dog under threshold, and never at or over threshold. When your dog is under threshold they are able to absorb information, and learn with little stress. 

Enviornment drives behavior, reinforcement drives behavior, communication drives behavior: we need these in order to heal your dog's emotions that are driving their behavior. 


Once we are able to enter the environment successfully and at a suitable distance, training begins. The training is the part of behavior training that is sustainable and does not always include management. This is where your dog takes the lead and is confident in their decision making and enviornment. 

There are some people who prefer to continue using management as well as training which is an option. Both management and training are part of the behavior program.
 
The most important part of the training process is YOU.
Being fully dedicated to the journey of training your dog is what yields results. 
 
Behavior training is for dogs with behaviors that need a little extra attention. These behavioral concerns can include: reactivity, redirection, biting, excessive barking, guarding (food, toys, people), humping, and more. If your dog is exhibiting something not listed, don't hesitate to contact me.
